This episode was quickly written to replace an episode titled "The Bet" which was never filmed. The script by Larry Charles
had Jerry betting Elaine $100 that she will not buy a gun. Elaine ends up buying a gun from a friend of Kramer's. The script featured a scene in which Elaine points the gun to her head and asks "where do you want it Jerry? The Kennedy? The McKinley?" After reading the scene, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss turned to Jason Alexander and said "I'm not doing this", and the episode was scrapped. See more
Donna pours wine into a glass and sets it down next to an empty glass. Even though nobody touches the glasses after that, they go from both being empty, to one being full, to both being full, and ultimately both being empty again. Also, both glasses and the bottle move around on the counter between shots. See more
