  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (9)

    • Kramer: You guys ought to see the way she works her nails across my back. Ooooo! She's a maestro. The criss-cross, the figure-eight, strummin' on the old banjo. And this wild savage free-for-all where anything can happen!

    • Jerry: A chef who doesn't wash is like a cop who steals. It's a cry for help. He wants to get caught.

    • Kramer: (inviting Elaine to scratch his back) It'll be a funky adventure.

    • Elaine: (to a rude store clerk) Did you just roll your eyes at him? Because let me tell you something. If anybody should be rolling their eyes, it is me, at him, about you.

    • Kramer: (to Elaine, about the mannequin) It’s like they chopped off your arms and legs, dipped you in plastic, then screwed you all back together again and stuck you on a pedestal. It’s really quite exquisite!

    Notes (4)

    • In syndication, Jerry's stand-up comedy routine wasn't included.

    • This episode had 23 scenes, the most scenes in one '30 minute' Seinfeld episode to date.

    • Suzanne Snyder (Audrey) previously played Ava (the attractive Nazi) in "The Limo."

    • Christine Dunford, the acerbic saleswoman who tells Elaine that the "Elaine mannequin" is wearing "a twelve hundred dollar Gaultier dress" previously played Leslie, "unequivocally the worst date of [George's] life", in "The Baby Shower."

    Trivia (3)

    • "Poppy's" the restaurant owned by the man of the same name was called Bouchard's previously in the episode "The Shoes."

    • Goof: In the scene immediately after Jerry refuses to try the pizza at Poppie's, Jerry and George are shown sitting on Jerry's couch, eating and talking. Jerry is sitting on the left side of the couch (his left) - closest to the kitchen. Then, he gets up and goes to the kitchen, and when the camera goes back to George, George is now sitting where Jerry was an instant earlier.

    • This happens very quickly so keep an eye for this. In the scene where George is telling the other guy trying to buy the same suit that there's an unadvertised sale on monday, George starts to remove the coat from him and the saleswoman says "Actually, the unadvertised sales starts on Friday" to which the other guy replies "Really?, Thanks". When he says "Really?" George is holding the coat, when he says "Thanks", the coat has disappeared from George's hands and is now being put away by the saleswoman.

    Allusions (2)

    • Elaine called the saleswoman "Natasha". It was an allusion to Natasha Fatale, a character from the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons. The joke is that they're both Russian. Jason Alexander (George) played Natasha's husband, Boris Badenov, in the 2000 movie, The Adventures Of Rocky & Bullwinkle.

    • There's an incident involving a food safety inspector, and, George reffered to the mannequin as Elaine's "pod". These were allusions to the 1955 movie The Body Snatchers.
