Notes and Trivia
This episode aired on NBC's "Blackout Thursday". The idea was to have each of their Thursday-night sitcoms prominently feature a blackout. While "Friends", "Mad About You" and "Madman of the People" all did, Larry David refused to cooperate.
After Elaine grabs Mr. Pitt by the lapel with inky hands, the ink stains vary markedly between cuts, and vary again when he is addressing an audience at the end of the show.
Kramer drops popcorn, chips, napkins, a cardboard tray and several other items before he rushes into the bathroom. When comes out, implied to only be about a minute later, the floor is clean except for the popcorn.
