Trivia

When at the bottle shop, George (Jason Alexander) suggests getting RingDings. This marks the second time a Drake product has been mentioned. The first was Drake's Coffee Cake in episode 3.15, Seinfeld: The Suicide (1992). See more »

Goofs

The back-projection rear-window view when Kramer is driving George through New York has a repeat: the same corner is shown with the same parked car and the same mother and child crossing. See more »

Season 5, Episode 13, "The Dinner Party"

Another great "bottle episode" from Seinfeld, the first one of season 5 to take place mainly outside Jerry's apartment and Monk's coffeeshop and being one of the show's "artier" episodes.

It's not one of the funniest episodes, but it's memorable and quotable, and above all it excels in the construction of the storyline, which, for once, is one storyline for all four characters. The actors are all phenomenal - especially Elaine and George, and they have a fantastic script to work with. The ending, in particular, is one of the funniest and most brilliant of the series.
