The Understudy, the 24th and final episode of season six and the 110th overall, was first broadcasted on May 18, 1995 with a script by Marjorie Gross and Carol Leifer and directed by Andy Ackerman.
George and Jerry are suspected of deliberately injuring Bette Midler during a softball game, giving Jerry’s girlfriend a chance to perform. Kramer becomes Bette’s personal assistant. Elaine gets George’s father to translate for her when she suspects that her manicurist has made some obvious snide remarks in a foreign tongue. Elaine meets J. Peterman, and gets herself a new job.
A really great use of Bette Midler as the guest star along with the introduction of John O’Hurley’s J. Peterman makes this the perfect ending to the sixth season.
