When this episode was first presented to NBC, they thought it was an absolute disaster. One of the main problems was that it was far too racy for public, and knew that it would offend the gay and lesbian couple. Later, as they were discussing how they could fix the insults to gays, someone in the meeting was saying that there's nothing wrong with being gay. This comment led to Jerry proposing the "not that there's anything wrong with that" line, which turned out to be a huge hit. The gay and lesbian communties especially liked this episode.
