    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (2)

    • NOTES (6)

      • Tracy Morgan doesn't appear until the goodnights.

      • Sketches/segments not shown in the 60 minute version: most of Weekend Update outside of the Seinfeld/Seinfeld segment, "1-800-EAT-S**T," "The Puke," and David Bowie's performance of "Rebel Rebel."

      • Jerry Seinfeld was booked to host this episode early on in the summer. Word of the booking leaked out in July, but many people didn't believe it since Seinfeld had nothing to promote. Moreover, many people assumed that Steve Martin would host to kick-off the twenty-fifth anniversary season.

      • That non-cast member playing an NBC suit in the "...And A Pizza Place" sketch actually was an NBC suit. It was Late-night and Specials Senior Vice President Rick Ludwin. Ludwin, a friend of Seinfeld's, is said by some to be the reason Jerry's sitcom wasn't canceled by NBC in its unsuccessful early years.

      • The show is renamed "SNL 25" in the opening credits.

      • Jimmy Fallon, Chris Parnell, and Horatio Sanz were promoted to repertory players beginning with this episode.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The ricotta cheese pizza's competitors at the 1999 Emmys were David Hyde Pierce, Peter Boyle, and John Mahoney. Pierce played Niles Crane on Frasier, Boyle played Frank Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond, and Mahoney played Martin Crane on Frasier. (Coincidentally, all three have appeared on SNL.) These three actors were in fact nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 1999 (the other two nominees were David Spade and Peter MacNicol), which is where they borrowed the awards-show footage.
