Please download the latest Flash plugin
As everyone arrives to watch the completed pilot on TV, Kramer announces his success in curing his constipation, while Jerry discovers his father's long-missing wallet beneath the cushions of his couch. But, just as they are getting used to the idea of being rich television producers, Jerry and George learn that Russell has been fired after mysteriously disappearing and that his replacement is not picking up their show for the new season. Blamed by Jerry for their show's failure, Elaine presses her case and finds that the coffee shop waitresses are actually the owner's daughters. Finally, after Russell becomes an environmental activist to redeem himself in Elaine's eyes, he is lost at sea while intercepting a whaling ship.
This episode resolved two outstanding story threads: Crazy Joe Davola returns briefly to disturb production of the pilot and Jerry finds his father's missing wallet in the cushions of his couch. The lawsuit between Elaine and Ping the delivery boy is one of the few unresolved storylines in the show's run.
Larry David and Larry Charles appear as Greenpeace boat workers.
