  • Trivia

    • George pulls out his wallet to extract a piece of paper with the phone number on it as he sits down to make the call to China. He has a normal thickness wallet here, instead of the bulging file cabinet of a wallet he carries in the episode "The Reverse Peephole."

    • After everyone yells at Kramer for watching the "before footage" on Jerry's VCR, he says, "All right, I'm gonna go take a look at this." and leaves. However, he leaves without removing the tape from the VCR, thus having nothing to "take a look at."

    • When Kramer returns to look at George's head the second time, before he leaves he says "Ok I'm guna go take a look at this". He had no reason to say that because he hadn't recorded anything new to look at.

    • In Kramer's "before" shot of George's head, it looks like his head is shaved in the middle rather than being naturally bald. This is easier to see when they look at the tape on the TV in color for comparison than when Kramer is actually making the video.
