When Frank pours himself a glass of scotch, the bottle says "Hennigans".
According to the Inside Look on the DVD, writer's Andy Robin and Gregg Kavet based this story on their experiences as being mentors and proteges at the studio.
When Kramer spills the kreplach, three small pieces land near the edge of the counter. In the next shot, there are four pieces, which are noticeably larger and further from the edge.
