  • On the Season Five DVD, Jerry explains that "The Sniffing Accountant" was inspired by an experience in his own life. He trusted his accountant at the time enough to give him $50,000 in cash without a receipt, and that the accountant "…snorted it up his nose". Jerry goes on to say that this episode is "…some measure of revenge".

  • When Kramer is in the bar with Barry, Jerry's stand-in is Mitch the bartender, Julia's stand-in is the waitress that hits Kramer when entering, and Michael Richards' stand-in can be seen sitting at the opposite end of the bar.

  • Frank Costanza tells George at the dinner table that he "talked to his friend Phil Cassecoff, the bra salesman, and got him an interview with his boss."

In that episode, Farkus is Frank's friend, and has known Frank and Estelle for years, as opposed to simply being the boss of Frank's friend Phil Cassecoff.
