FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • In some scenes it shows Newman drinking lots of Mello Yello bottles while he is with Kramer. Why would they buy soda and drink it for the purpose of collecting the deposit, this would completely destroy their profit margin.

    • Everybody Loves Raymond and Seinfeld are in a very long chain of crossovers, so their universes are the same; however, Brad Garrett's characters in both shows are different.

    • While the brand name of the soda can the woman sets down is labeled 'Diet Soda', the red and blue Pepsi symbol is clearly left untouched.

    • Jerry says "The Triple-A guy said I was this close to sucking a muffin down the carburetor." But his ar doesn't have a carburator, it has fuel injection.

    • George says the lyrics to the Petula Clark song wrong. He says "... where the neon lights are pretty", but actually the line goes "Where the neon SIGNS are pretty"

    • At the Auction, Elaine's paddle says 856 on the front but it says 858 on the back

  • Quotes

    • Jerry: Hey. You put your groceries under the hood of my car?
      Kramer: Aw, that's right, we forgot about those.
      Newman: That's where my missing soda is.
      Jerry: And your crab legs, and a thing of cheese. The Triple-A guy said I was this close to sucking a muffin down the carburetor.

    • Jerry: "I'm here to catch a... glimpse."

    • Tony: When was the last time you even checked the washer fluid?
      Jerry: But the washer fluid is fine.
      Tony: The washer fluid is not fine!

    • Newman: We carry a couple of bags of mail and the rest is ours!
      Kramer: Newman, you magnificent bastard, you did it!!
      Newman: Let the collecting begin!!

    • Auctioneer: …do I have sixty-five-hundred?
      (Elaine raises paddle)
      Auctioneer: Sixty-five-hundred to the… dark-haired person on the right.
      (a little later)
      Sue Ellen Mishke: Ten thousand.
      Auctioneer: Ten thousand to the shapely woman on the left.

  • Notes

    • Brad Garrett & Julia Louis-Dreyfus will later do voices in "A Bug's Life". Also, they will announce together the nominations for the 2006 Emmy Awards.

    • If you're paying attention, a funny little quip they've place in the episode is Newman, a postal employee asking "What's this 'MI 10 cents'?", referring to the abbreviation of Michigan - something a postal employee should know.

    • Originally broadcast as part of a 60 min episode.
