  • Notes

    • The writer of this episode, Spike Feresten, was a former staff writer on Late Show With David Letterman. According to an article in the Reader Mail section of Aaron Barnhart's Late Show News, Issue #86, the character of the "Soup Nazi" was based on the owner of a soup stand in the neighborhood of the Ed Sullivan Theater. The Late Show ... staffers referred to him as the "Soup Nazi." The 21 Nov 95 issue of The Star contains an article with the following headline "WATCH OUT SEINFELD, I'M GOING TO SMACK YOUR FACE". The owner of Soup Kitchen International, Al Yeganeh, is the man the character is based on. Al, busy enough already with his business, doesn't like the extra publicity his shop was given by this episode or the use of the word "Nazi". For his performance as the "Soup Nazi" Larry Thomas was nominated for an Emmy Award, as were the writer and the director.
