Notes and Trivia
The World Trade Center twin-towers are visible in one scene.
Larry Miller (The Doorman) and Jerry Seinfeld had worked together before. Larry was a performer in Jerry's very first TV special, and was also in Jerry's "I'm Telling You For the Last Time" HBO special. Jerry was also in the 1999 movie "Pros & Cons" with Miller.
Larry Miller was once considered for the role of George Costanza.
When the German Tourists say, "That's Him, Stop Him, (etc. etc.)", it is a reference to the 1976 film, "The Marathon Man" starring Dustin Hoffman and Sir Laurence Olivier, where there is a scene when Olivier's character is recognized by New York Jewish immigrants as having been a Nazi torturer in a WWII concentration camp.
