  • Season 3 Episode 2: The Truth

  • First episode where, during the credits, aren't just pictures of Jerry. He was talking and moving.

  • When George breaks up with his girlfriend, she exclaims "You hate my earrings, don't you?" and gestures at both of her ears. However, she is actually only wearing one earring.

  • When George raises his voice in the clinic and says "I'm not lying," two members of the staff are shown looking on. However, in the next wide shot, they disappear entirely.

  • Season 3 Episode 1: The Note

  • When this episode premiered, people did not understand why Jerry and Elaine's reuniting [as a couple] had not been an issue in the third season. On the season 3 DVD, it says that Larry David thought it might not be a good idea for the series. Also, it says that whenever Jerry Seinfeld went to do stand-ups during the summer, when he asked if Jerry and Elaine's newly-reunited relationship should be continued during season 3, the audience gave an overwhelming "No".

  • The song played during the closing credits is Les Brown's "Joltin' Joe DiMaggio" sung by Betty Bonney.

  • Very bad cut from when Jerry and George go to the Physical Therapist and George sees Raymond. He begins to turn to Jerry, but then there's a cut to his head already 45 degrees ahead of where it was before.

  • George unbuttons his pants a first time when he's lying on his stomach, then later when the masseur asks him to take them off, George stands up and his pants are buttoned again.

  • In the final scene, as Jerry asks Kramer, "Did he say anything?" you can clearly see Jerry's left hand is empty at the left side of the screen. In the next shot, a blue container mysteriously appears in his left hand.

  • In the final scene of the episode at Monk's, where the four are watching Joe DiMaggio dunk his donuts, when Kramer starts to bang on the table and yell Julia Louis-Dreyfus almost loses it as she's laughing so hard. If you watch closely she actually looks right into the camera as she is trying to keep herself from laughing too much. She is probably thinking the scene will get cut for a re-take.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: The Busboy

  • According to George, the best public restroom near 65th St & 10th Ave is in Lincoln Center. In Manhattan, there is no such intersection as 65th & 10th. This is because at 59th St, 10th Ave becomes Amsterdam Ave.

  • While Jerry, George and Elaine are talking in the opening scene at the restaurant, we see Antonio the busboy walk out in the background and start setting the table behind them. When Elaine is talking we can see his hands just to the left of her adjusting something; then the camera immediately switches to George and he turns to look at the table. When he looks, Antonio is suddenly gone and the menu is already on fire, too impossibly quick for him to have set the menu and exit the scene. Obviously bad editing.

  • The week this episode originally aired, NBC aired a promo to announce the change in broadcast day.

    (Jerry and Julia are sitting on a couch.)
    Julia: The pilot was on Wednesday…
    Jerry: …then we were on Thursday…
    Julia: Yea…
    Jerry: …then we moved to Wednesday for the war…
    Julia: …uh huh…
    Jerry: …and then we moved back to Thursday for the peace.
    Julia: Oh. So….what's happening now?
    Jerry: One guess…
    (Jerry reaches over to grab the lamp beside him as the couch starts to move, and we see a moving man push it and them off camera.)

    Announcer: Seinfeld mooooves to Wednesday. Forever. Wednesdays on NBC.

    'Forever' would last until 2/4/93 when the show would move back to anchor NBC's Thursday night line-up for the rest of its run.

  • At the end of the episode Elaine, George, and Jerry are sitting in the coffee shop and the ketchup moves from inside by Jerry to the outside of the table when Elaine's to-go order is put on the table.

  • When George gives Antonio his business card he tells him that he is in real estate, but of course he quit that job in the episode 'The Revenge'. Of course this due to the shows being aired out of production order; still it comes across as confusing.

  • George starts his fascination(on the series) with bathrooms by telling Jerry he knows where the best bathrooms are located throughout New York City.

  • When the busboy enters Jerry's apartment at the end, the apartment number on Jerry's door is 3A....not the normal 5A.

  • I just watched the episode. Elaine is also in a different apartment. That's why Jerry WAS in 3A. Aparently after the second season they changed all of the sets.

  • There is no green 'Klein' bicycle in the hallway; there's a shelf there. Also, there was a gray couch in the opening scenes, and then later it was black with blue pillows.

  • Season 2 Episode 11: The Chinese Restaurant

  • After Jerry bets Elaine $50 to eat food off a strangers table she tries offering them $25 speaking through her teeth with a smile on her face the whole time. Afterwards the group starts to ask each other what she said. If you listen you can make out Larry David (co-creator of the show and co-writer of this episode)'s voice.

  • Jerry, George and Elaine are not the only ones have trouble getting a table. Norman Brenner (Michael Richards' stand-in) can be seen sitting by the door waiting for a table when the gang enters; he is still waiting there when the gang walks out.
