The title of this episode refers to Jerry's childhood barber, about whom he feels too guilty to stop patronizing even despite the awful haircuts he receives. As an alternative, Kramer offers up his barber, who works out of his apartment. Meanwhile, when George leaves a job interview unsure whether or not he got the position, and the interviewer goes on vacation, he decides to start going into the office everyday, even though he has no idea what his duties are. Antony Ponzini, David Ciminello, and Michael Fairman guest star. Originally airing November 11, 1993, "The Barber" was the seventh episode shot for the show's fifth season, despite being the eighth one shown.
