George is given a “special” assignment by Mr. Wilhelm, the details of which he does not even hear. The assignment gets mysteriously done, but ends up having George tossed into a mental hospital.

The Invitations
In a deleted scene, Elaine tells George she won’t attend his wedding as she is dateless and not in the bridal party, but is interrupted by Mr. Steinbrenner, who forces himself on Elaine as her date, warning George that if she does not go with him, then George will be fired from the Yankees.

The Little Kicks
Anna, late for work, says she got held up…and Elaine assumes it was at Yankee Stadium, with George.

The Fatigues
George checks out his Risk Management book-on-tape, shocked to hear the voiceover reader sounds just like him. George ends up doing a speech on Ovaltine, and why it should be called Roundtine…instead of Risk Management, after his notes from Abby get switched with Bania’s.

The Checks
Kramer takes his new Japanese friends to the stadium to run the bases, but due to rain, George has them watch the “Jerry” pilot instead in his office.

The Abstinence
George teaches Bernie Williams and Derek Jeter how to use physics to properly hit home runs, as he is now a physics expert due to his abstinence.

The Comeback
Reilly zings George on eating too much shrimp, putting him on a mission to get him back with a good comeback.

The Nap
Tired from watching “The Omen” trilogy, George discovers he can nap under his desk. He has Jerry’s contractor Conrad deck out the desk to make it extra comfy, but the jig is up when Mr. Steinbrenner crashes his office. Jerry calls in a bomb threat to free George, only in exchange for fitted hats for every person in the stadium on Hat Day…and later for advance calls to ticket-holders in the event of a rain delay.

The Millennium
George meets great difficulty in getting himself fired, breaking into the Hall of Pride, staining Babe Ruth’s jersey, streaking on the field and driving the World Series trophy through the parking lot.

The Muffin Tops
Mary Anne inadvertently gets George in trouble by mentioning his “hen supervisor” job to Mr. Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner “trades” George to Tyler Chicken for all-chicken concessions, ending George’s tenure with the Yankees.

The Strike
George claims that thanks to his good rapport with the grounds crew, he was still able to get Dr. Whatley Yankee tickets as a Hanukkah present.

The Finale
Mr. Steinbrenner is seen leaving his office for the gang’s trial in Massachusetts.
