"The Cadillac, Part 1" is the 14th episode of the seventh season of Seinfeld, and the 124th episode overall. This episode was written by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld and was directed by Andy Ackerman; it first aired on February 8, 1996. This episode is the first of a two-part, hour-long episode; the second part is "The Cadillac, Part 2".
Jerry Seinfeld comes back from a high paying gig and awes Cosmo Kramer with his earnings. Jerry surprises his parents Morty Seinfeld and Helen Seinfeld by buying them a new Cadillac Fleetwood; learning about his financial situation, Elaine becomes infatuated with Jerry once again (The Fleetwood base model cost $36,995 at the time). The cable company wants to meet with Kramer, who makes sure he isn't at home when they arrive, to retaliate for their lateness when his cable was installed. George Costanza reconsiders his engagement when one of Elaine's friends reveals that she is friends with actress Marisa Tomei who happens to love "short, quirky bald men" and that had it not been for Susan Ross, she would have set George up with her. After hearing this, George begins to develop an obsession for Marisa.
Jack Klompus (who serves as the vice-condo president of the condo where Morty and Helen reside at) accuses Morty of embezzling funds from the office of condo president to pay for his new Cadillac (Jack doesn't believe Jerry has enough talent to earn so much money, convincing the rest of the board of this). George wants to meet Marisa for a cup of coffee, even when Elaine's friend is in the hospital with a heart condition.
