Notes and Trivia
This is the second episode in a row where George makes reference to eating an ostrich burger.
At one point, Cindy says "Koko, that girl's alright." This is much like David Puddy's line in The Dealership where he says "Koko, that chimp's alright."
When Kramer calls Jerry and says he's across from Ray's Pizza, Jerry asks it's "Famous Ray's". Kramer responds that it's "Original Ray's", and Jerry again wants to know if it's "Famous Original Ray's". Famous Original Ray's Pizza in New York was so successful, that several copycats with similar names opened around town as well.
When Jerry says "Stay alive! No matter what occurs, I will find you!", he is making a reference to a well-known Daniel Day Lewis line from "The Last of the Mohicans".
When Jerry and Elaine are playing "Battleship", Elaine calls a "hit", and Jerry puts a white peg on his board. However, the peg for a "hit" should be red.
When Kramer and Elaine discuss sending her a fax, the level in Kramer's juice bottle suddenly drops without him taking a drink.
