In the episode where George (Costanza... this is going to get tricky) discovered the joys of taking daynaps under his desk at work, he takes a nap and oversleeps only to have Steinbrenner come into his office looking for George, curious about what the title of the song "Heartbreaker" was.

Steinbrenner, the ever persistent gentleman, waits patiently in George's office and ends up singing the worst version of Heartbreaker ever (that is, AFTER his grandchildren show up and try to play with George).

George then calls Jerry and tells him to distract Steinbrenner.

Jerry calls in a bomb threat.

Steinbrenner comes over to the Costanza's to let George's parents know that he died and was a hard worker. The pay off is Jerry Stiller (Constanza's dad) letting him have it for a trade that Steinbrenner made some years back.

A perfect example of George's relationship with papa Costanza. The greatest part of this clip is the message that George's dad leaves on Jerry's machine.

Kramer befriends a caddy, who helps him to improve his golf game and offer his other advice. George's bosses consider him for a promotion when they think he is so dedicated to his work that he is there in the morning before everyone else and still there after they all leave.

Taking advantage of the situation, he and Susan go up north to her parent's rebuilt cabin. Elaine meets an old rival who's heir to the Oh Henry! candy bar fortune and has never worn a bra.

In this clip, Steinbrenner needs a calzone from the best calzone place in the world. He sends George out to go get one for him, but of course, whenever George Costanza needs to prove himself in some way, shape or form, he falls flat.

Steinbrenner NEEDS his calzone, though. He just needs it.

"Costanza is in the building!"

Too bad it's just toasty pants that got warmed up with a calzone.

Jerry's healthy diet conflicts with his dating of Elaine's cousin. Kramer promises a sick boy that Yankee Paul O'Neill will hit two home runs for him, so he can get back a birthday card that he sold based on George's wink. ...more on Wikipedia
