Episode Notes
This is the only episode in which a character's age is directly mentioned: Jerry says he's 36.

This episode was originally planned to air in season 2. Before this episode was broadcast, Jerry came on and did a piece explaining that the episode takes place before George lost his job and that he wanted to "let you know, that we know, you know."
