Jerry finds a suede jacket at a great price -- the only drawback is that the inner-lining is pink -- so he snatches it up. At the same time, George can't get "Master of the House" from +Les Miserables out of his head. Both of these elements come into play when the two meet Elaine's gruff father, Alton Benes, at the airport. George is scolded for constantly singing the tune and Jerry is forced to have his jacket ruined by the falling snow because Alton refuses to be seen with him wearing it with the lining-side out. Meanwhile, Elaine and Kramer run into some trouble with a magician's doves. Originally airing February 6, 1991, "The Jacket" was the fifth episode shot for the second season, although it was shown third. Lawrence Tierney of Reservoir Dogs guest starred as Elaine's father.
