Trivia

Although uncredited, the clown who's hat is briefly taken and returned by Kramer backstage at the circus (in the background during Katya and Jerry's conversation) is David Larible, an Italian master in the art of clowning. Larible also appeared in Oceans Eleven (wearing almost exactly the same costume) welcoming the audience to the circus scene where Yen is introduced. See more »

Goofs

Jerry states that Katya, the Romanian gymnast, won a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics. Only two female Romanian gymnasts won silver medals at that Olympics. One was Ecaterina Szabo who place second in the individual all-around, the other was Doina Staiculescu who took silver in the individual all-around in rhythmic gymnastics. See more »

Jerry Seinfeld: Boy, you can really talk some trash.
Jerry Seinfeld: [to George] I guess that's better than eating it.

Season 6, Episode 6, "The Gymnast"

Extremely underrated, "The Gymnast" may well be my favorite episode from Seinfed's 6th season. First and foremost it's noteworthy for Ian Abercrombie's performance as Mr. Pitt; he truly steals the show in this episode, and his final scene alone is one of the season's most laugh out loud hilarious moments.

He's not alone though. Michael Richards and Jason Alexander are at their best. In addition, Romanian actress Elina Löwensohn is terrific as Jerry's girlfriend-of-the-week, and their final conversation is fantastic, even if it makes no sense at all.
