    Notes (1)

    • Bruce Kirschbaum (writer of the episode) thought he was making up a religion that George was converting to. Later, he learned that Latvian Orthodox is a real religion.

    Trivia (5)

    • Sasha's apartment is showed to be 5E, but that's Newman's apartment.

    • It's revealed that both Jerry and George are left-handed.

    • George writes on his hand in order to cheat on his conversion test. When he holds up his hand in the priest's office, you can see the notes on his palm.

    • Right after Jerry throws the fungus lotion in Elaine's bag, the camera angle switches and you can see Jerry holding the lotion again even though he just supposedly threw it in Elaines bag.

    • When the father is telling Kramer that he has the "Kovorka", he says "Buy 10 cloves of garlic...". Yet, when Jerry appears at his door, there are almost 20 cloves around his neck.
