"The Raincoats, Part 2" is the 19th episode of the fifth season of Seinfeld, and the 83rd episode overall; it first aired on April 28, 1994. This episode is the second part of a two-part hour long episode, with the first part being "The Raincoats, Part 1". It was written by Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Tom Gammill & Max Pross, and was directed by Tom Cherones.


Jerry and Rachel go to see Schindler's List but cannot help making out since they have not been alone in such a long time. Newman, also in the cinema, spots them and is aghast.

When Jerry arrives back at his apartment, Helen and Morty quiz him about the film and Jerry tries to bluff his way through. George goes back to Rudy's to buy back his father’s clothes. After giving Rudy the money back, Rudy tells George that he burnt them because they were moth-infested.

Newman, as expected, informs Helen and Morty that Jerry was making out with Rachel during Schindler's List. Jerry, in "trouble", realizes that Newman would be the one responsible for it. Jack Klompus rings again to tell Morty that he had to break a window to get into the garage and that the Executives will be in New York City by 2:00 the next day. Morty decides that the trip to Paris will have to wait; since their flight is at 3:00 they will not be able to make it as the business deal is more important.

Kramer arrives at the Costanzas' for paella. Frank notices that Kramer is wearing one of his missing vacation shirts, which forces George to confess that he sold his vacation wear.

George asks Jerry for the tickets to France; as they are non-refundable and the Seinfelds won't be using them, he can get a free trip to Paris and become a hero in the Big Brother organization. Meanwhile, Rudy refuses to buy the Executives from Kramer and Morty; after the ordeal with Frank's clothes, he now has a policy of not buying off the street. Frank appears at Rudy's and argues with Morty. At the airport, Jerry and Elaine say farewell to Morty and Helen as they leave to return to Florida. Aaron goes crazy, thinking he could have done more to help them while they were in New York City. This is an allusion to the movie Schindler's List in which the title character, Oskar Schindler, is in a state of anguish for not being able to do more to help the doomed Jews during the Holocaust. In fact, Aaron goes into an Oskar-type monologue, occasionally using the same phrases.

Jerry goes by Rachel's house, but her father tells him to go away after explaining that his postman informed him of his "behavior" at Schindler's List with Rachel.

Back at Monk's, Jerry tells Elaine that when his parents got home they had been completely robbed because Klompus never fixed the window. Newman comes into the shop and Jerry confronts him and chases him out into the streets. George is in Paris with Joey who is giving him a hard time. Helen and Morty go on a cruise and discover that the Costanzas are on the same one.
