George Costanza (Jason Alexander) is romancing old college friend Diane (Rosalind Allen), with Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) having convinced her that George is a marine biologist — an interesting calling, Jerry evidently feels, for his friend.
Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) is charged with escorting an important Russian author (George Murdock) around town. And Kramer (Michael Richards) can’t get anybody interested in driving into the Atlantic several hundred golf balls.
Upset by noises from Elaine’s malfunctioning new electronic pocket organizer, the Russian throws it from the limo window, where it hits Corinne (Carol Kane), who traces it back to Jerry.
Somehow, the threads come together, in a way that’s funny enough to allow extreme improbability — though it is difficult to understand why, in another subplot, Jerry’s good friend Elaine has to be told the significance of his longtime favorite T-shirt.
Ron Hauge and Charlie Rubin’s script has its share of funny lines and situations, among them Kramer’s entrance singing the theme from 1959-62 Western series “The Rebel.”
