Mr. Steinbrenner was one of my favorite characters on Seinfeld. As with the show, Mr. Steinbrenner will be missed.
10. The Nap
RECAP: George Costanza is tired, so takes a nap under his desk. Steinbrenner comes in looking for Costanza to tell him he has finally figured out the lyrics to “Heartbreaker” by Pat Benatar and decides to remain in Costanza’s office until he returns. Costanza calls Jerry Seinfeld and asks him to phone in a bomb threat, causing Steinbrenner to hide under the desk and finding Costanza. The Boss becomes convinced Costanza has ESP and knew a bomb threat would be called in. He puts Costanza in charge of Seinfeld’s demand of fitted hat day for every fan, much to Costanza’s chagrin as he now has to find what hat size every attendee wears.
QUOTABLE: “You climbed under that desk because you have ESP. George, what’s on my mind? … Meatballs! Huh. Unbelievable. Anyway this terrorist had a specific demand. Not more cheap adjustable hats on hat day. He wants fitted hats just like the players wear.” — Steinbrenner to Costanza
