Notes and Trivia

This is a rare episode where Elaine doesn't share a scene or talk to either George or Kramer.

There really is a restaurant that serves only variations of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and it is called "PBJ's".


When George comes in to tell Jerry the wedding date, a roll of paper towels on the counter changes position between shots.

When Jerry and Elaine talk in her office, he picks up a sandwich and starts to eat. Around the time Bob walks in, a napkin appears in Jerry's hand from nowhere.

When Jerry goes to the Santos Brothers' dressing room, the brother who answers the door says that two of his brothers had left already, and we then see that there were only two more brothers inside the dressing room. That makes a total of five brothers. However, when they were performing on stage, there were only four brothers.
