Appearances: 1) "The Chaperone" (Season 6, Episode 1)—September 22, 1994; 2) "The Pledge Drive" (Season 6, Episode 3)—October 6, 1994
In Danny Tartabull's first appearance, George gives the Yankees slugger some pointers on how to "improve" his swing and, after seeing how sweaty Tartabull is in the jersey, gets the idea to have the Yankees wear cotton uniforms.
We all know how that turned out.
In Tartabull's second appearance, George drives him to a fundraiser for Public Television, but diverts from the route when he believes that someone flipped him off.
Here's the exchange from "The Chaperone":
[A locker room at Yankee Stadium. George is helping Danny Tartabull with his swing.]
GEORGE: Okay Danny, take a swing. N-No! No! No! You're opening up your shoulder.
GEORGE: No, not really. I'm just saying this to you because I like to hear myself talk. Yes, really!
TARTABULL (wiping sweat from his brow): Alright, alright.
GEORGE: What are you all sweatin' for?
TARTABULL: It's hot in this uniform.
GEORGE: Hot? What is this?
TARTBULL: What is what?
GEORGE: This uniform, what's it made from?
TARTBULL: I don't know, cotton?
GEORGE: No. This is not cotton. Here, lemme see. Will you stop it? Oh. Of course. Polyester!
GEORGE: I can't believe you're not playing in cotton.
TARTABULL: Well, this is what they give us.
GEORGE: You know they used to make leisure suits out of this fabric?
TARTABULL: You really think cotton's better?
GEORGE: Of course! Alright, maybe I'll say something to Buck.
TARTABULL: Yeah, good idea. Catch ya later.
GEORGE: Hey, don't embarrass me today. I got some friends in the stands.
Here is the exchange from "The Pledge Drive":
[George and Danny are in the car with one another.]
TARTABULL: This isn't gonna take long (the fundraiser), is it?
GEORGE: Oh no, in and out, I made sure of that. And you'll be happy to know I
perused the script and it's met with my approval.
TARTABULL: I'm sure it's fine.
GEORGE (swerving): Hey! Watch it! Did you see that guy? He just gave me the
TARTABULL: You sure?
GEORGE: Oh yeah! Middle finger, straight up, at me! At us!
TARTABULL: What are you doing?
GEORGE: I'm following him.
