Did You Know?


In the episode, Elaine (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is asked by Joe Davola (Peter Crombie) if he knows her from somewhere, and she answers with a joke, that he probably recognizes her, because her face is sculptured on Mount Rushmore, alongside the U.S. Presidents, instead of Roosevelt's face. In 2015, a poster was released for the fourth season of Veep (2012), that showed the face of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus ), sculptured on Mount Rushmore, but it appeared instead of Jefferson's face.

Oops! Another Blooper
25 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

OK, once again in this Episode Jerry is in the kitchen doing his best to tell Kramer that he is getting his watch fixed that his parents gave him. In all reality this watch was thrown away by Seinfeld on the street, and into a trash can where Uncle Leo scavanged it. In the kitchen Jerry follows Kramer, and his Pepsi can, out into the hall and into the door way of Kramer's apartment. The discussions continue and eventually both parties retreat to their individual apartments-though the Pepsi can doesn't! The Pepsi can that Kramer holds during this process in his door way magically disappears in the exact middle of the above doorway sketch. OOOOOOOOOPSSSSS!
