In the first hour-long episode, Jerry hooks up with Keith Hernandez at the gym.
Approximately 32 million people watched this episode (both parts) when it initially aired, and the show became a major ratings grab for its next five seasons.
Jerry has an audition with the new "Elaine" (played by Elena Wohl), a method actress interested in being Elaine in every way, including insisting being called Elaine and even going as far as dating Jerry (and breaking up with him in Part 2).
The real Elaine has a problem with Monk's coffee shop, as they appear to be only hiring buxom waitresses, so she tries to get hired; when the owner turns her down, she files a report with the Equal Employment Opportunity office. NBC executive Russell Dalrymple's obsession with Elaine begins to affect his work; she tries to let him down easy by saying she can't be in a relationship with a high-powered man and would prefer to be with someone selfless, such as a member of Greenpeace.
"The Pilot" is the two-part season finale episode of the fourth season of Seinfeld.
It makes up the 63rd and 64th episodes and first aired on May 20, 1993.
