  • Trivia

    • At the end of the episode the rich Texan took back the cheque because he thought Kramer hustled him. However, when Kramer chose to match up Ithaca vs. Boston the rich Texan immediately chose Ithaca.

    • Goof: On the news report about Jerry and Katie's car accident, the newscaster says that they crashed into a pool "early this morning". However, it was dark out, and based on the progression of the story, it was clearly evening.

    • Goof: When Earl finds out that it had been a friend of Kramer's who delayed the flight in Ithaca, he grabs back the checks and rips them up. However, just a moment earlier he had mentioned that they were traveler's checks, which are as good as cash.

    • In his attempts to prove to Mr Morgan that he had black friends, George tracks down characters from two previous episodes. He first tries to watch another rented movie with Joe Temple, with whom he watched the film Breakfast At Tiffany's in "The Couch". He then invites out Karl the exterminator from "The Doodle".

  • Quotes

    • Katie: Jerry, listen, just so you know, before we take off they're gonna tell us what to do in the vent of a crash-
      Jerry: Yes, I know. I've flown before.
      Katie: Oh good. I just didn't want you to freak out… The chance of a crash is very slim. Do you have to go to the bathroom?

    • George: Well, I wanna put a picture of me and my boss Mr. Morgan up at the office.
      Jerry: What for?
      George: They're reorganizing the staff, and I'm on thin ice with this guy as it is.
      Jerry: Isn't putting this guy's picture on your desk a little transparent?
      George: It better be.

    • Jerry: What's this little scam the airlines have goin' now with these special clubs? Hundred fifty dollars a year to sit in a room, eat peanuts, drink coffee and soda, and read magazines. Excuse me, but isn't this the flight? I already got four hours of this comin' to me… What am I paying for? How bout' an 'I got all my luggage club'? Can I get into that club? Where is that club? I would like to join that club. Airlines love to divide us into classes. You know like when you're sitting in coach, the stewardess always closes that stupid curtain. Always gives you that look, like, maybe if you would work a little harder…

    • Jerry: (to Bridgette) I'll meet you at the Diplomat's Club. I'll be the one without the big red sash.

    • Earl: (reading name on mail bag) David Berkowitz?
      Newman: The Son of Sam!! The worst mass murderer the post office ever produced!
