In the the Seinfeld episode The Raincoats (part2), Jerry and Rachel go to see Schindler’s List but cannot help making out since they have not been alone in such a long time. Newman, also in the cinema, spots them and is visibly angered.
When Jerry arrives back at his apartment, Helen and Morty quiz him about the film and Jerry tries to bluff his way through, and mostly succeeds. George goes back to Rudy’s to buy back his father’s clothes. After giving Rudy the money back, Rudy tells George that he burnt them because they were moth-infested, now George has no money and no clothes.
Newman, as expected, informs Helen and Morty that Jerry was making out with Rachel during Schindler’s List. Jerry, in “trouble,” realizes that Newman would be the one responsible for it. Jack Klompus rings again to tell Morty that he had to break a window to get into the garage and that the Executives will be in New York City by 2:00 in the afternoon the next day. Morty decides that the trip to Paris will have to wait; since their flight is at 3:00 they will not be able to make it as the business deal is more important to him.
Kramer arrives at the Costanzas’ for paella. Frank notices that Kramer is wearing one of his missing vacation shirts, which forces George to confess that he sold his vacation wear, making Frank upset. Kramer then sees a mouse and he and Frank run into another room.
George asks Jerry for the tickets to France, as they are non-refundable and the Seinfelds won’t be using them, he can get a free trip to Paris and become a hero in the Big Brother organization. Meanwhile, Rudy refuses to buy the Executives from Kramer and Morty; after the ordeal with Frank’s clothes, he now has a policy of not buying clothes off the street. Frank appears at Rudy’s and argues with Morty. At the airport, Jerry and Elaine say farewell to Morty and Helen as they leave to return to Florida. Aaron goes crazy, thinking he could have done more to help them while they were in New York City. This is an allusion to the film Schindler’s List in which the title character, Oskar Schindler, is in a state of anguish for not being able to do more to help the doomed Jews during the Holocaust. In fact, Aaron goes into an Schindler-type monologue, occasionally using the same phrases.
