Trivia

After George (Jason Alexander) gets his own bathroom he says, "I love that bathroom. It's got that high, high toilet. I feel like a gargoyle perched on the ledge of a building." Jason Alexander voiced the gargoyle in the film The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996). See more »

Goofs

When Puddy is looking through his coins in what is supposed to be Oslo, he says "femti kroner" which is 50 kroner. There is no coin of that value, only a bill. See more »
