  • Trivia

    • According to many crossovers, the universes of Cheers and Seinfeld are the same; however, George Wendt plays himself. Plus, Cheers is mentioned as a show seen by the characters of Seinfeld.

    • Ann Talman, Michael Richards' then girlfriend, is the woman bouncing next to him in the exercise video scene.

    • When Kramer is done on the phone in the hallway of the hotel, he talks to the old lady. When she starts talking Kramer puts his right hand in his pocket, but later when she talks about the dead baby, his hand is on his side.

  • Quotes

    • Kramer: (to Fred Savage) I'm not crazy. I may look weird, but I'm just like you… I'm just a regular guy.

    • George: (before going through a metal detector) I've always been a little nervous about these things. I'm afraid I'm going to step through into another dimension.

    • Kramer: (giving a lecture) My personal acting technique is working with color. Imagining, then finding the emotional vibrational mood connected to the color. See, if you look through my scripts, you see that all my lines have a special color. So, I don't memorize language, I memorize colors. This way I can go through red, yellow, green, blue, and you have a full palette of emotions.

    • Kramer: Helene, how are you?
      Helene: I haven't worked since 1934. How do you think I am?

    • Helene: It was sad for a Three Stooges picture, what with the dead baby and the Stooges being executed and all.
      Kramer: Yeah, well that was an unusual choice for the Stooges.

    • Kid: I said, "Hey, Kramer, you ever kill a man?" And he says, "What do you think, junior? These hands been bathing in Ivory liquid?"

    • Jerry: (seeing George's big pile of luggage) It's a three day trip. Who are you, Diana Ross?
      George: I dress based on mood.
      Jerry: But you essentially always wear the same thing.
      George: Seemingly. But, within that basic framework, there are a number of subtle variations, visible only to the trained observer, that reveal the many moods, the many shades, of George Costanza.
      Jerry: And what is this?
      George: This is morning mist.

    • George: Alrighty, so that's one tuck and one no tuck.

  • Notes

    • Julia Louis-Dreyfus missed the first few episodes of season four because she was on maternity leave.

    • Jerry Seinfeld has actually made more than 40 appearances on The Tonight Show.

    • Both parts of "The Trip" were filmed in the same week - July 20 - 24, 1992.

    • This is the second episode in which George complains about the way sheets are tucked too tightly in motel beds. In The Limo (episode 36) he explains that he can't try to outrun the Nazis because he pulled a hamstring trying to kick the sheets free from the bottom of the bed.

    • The Trip (1) and (2) are the first episodes since the pilot without Elaine Benes. Elaine is not even mentioned in the episode.
