When George and Susan break the news to her father about his cabin being burned down (inadvertently by Kramer's Cuban cigar in the previous episode), he reacts even worse than expected. His malaise is later revealed to be the result of his fear that his love letters from author John Cheever burned with the cottage. Meanwhile, Jerry goes too far while talking dirty in bed with Elaine's secretary, and Kramer sets out on a search for more Cuban stogies. Viewers may wish to note that Warren Frost and Grace Zabriskie, the actors who portray Susan's parents, also appeared together on David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Originally airing October 28, 1992, "The Cheever Letters" was the eighth episode of the show's fourth season.
