"The Chaperone" is the 87th episode of NBC sitcom Seinfeld. This was the first episode for the sixth season. It aired on September 22, 1994. This is the first episode to be directed by Andy Ackerman.


Jerry meets Karen, Miss Rhode Island (Marguerite MacIntyre), who is competing in the Miss America pageant and consequently must be chaperoned on her date with Jerry; Kramer fills the role and quickly becomes her personal coach. Elaine seeks to follow in the footsteps of Jackie Kennedy Onassis in securing a position with Doubleday, where she unsuccessfully interviews with Ms. Landis (Gail Strickland). Elaine meets Mr. Pitt (Ian Abercrombie) as the interview ends and agrees to become his personal assistant. She soon finds her job as personal assistant to Mr. Pitt to be unfulfilling. George replaces polyester with cotton as the material for the Yankees' uniforms, with alarming results. Danny Tartabull and Buck Showalter guest star on this episode.


As explained in this episode's "Inside Look" on Disc 1 of the Seinfeld Season 6 DVD set, the opening scenes of this episode were filmed at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California (substituting for Yankee Stadium) while the New York Yankees were actually in town for a series against the then-California Angels. Though Major League Baseball was a month into the 1994–95 Major League Baseball strike when this episode aired, the episode was filmed at the end of July, two weeks before the strike began.
