Kramer poses for a painting, that an elderly couple becomes just crazy about. George feels obligated to buy something when he accompanies Jerry to his new girlfriend's art studio. Elaine wears an Orioles baseball cap in the owner's box at Yankee Stadium and refuses to remove it. Jerry finds out his new girlfriend is a plagiarist after he hears the words she wrote in a letter, on television. Elaine gets a chance to return to Yankee Stadium.

b: 25-Mar-92 pc: 320 w: Larry David d: Tom Cherones

NOTE: Viewer Jeff Holland notes that Elaine comments during this episode that no one would want to watch a bris; however in "The Bris" that is just what she and Jerry do!
After Kramer's Head accident, he calls George "Mike". This is in reference to Mike Costanza, the person who for the most part was the actual person George was based on.

KRAMER: (screaming at the players on the field) YOU BETTER CATCH IT,

the reference being to former phillies 3rd basemen Charlie Hayes who played 3rd for the Yankees

You may recognise Catherine Keener as Maxine in the movie Being John Malkovich

According to Kenny Kramer, the "Real Kramer", the George character was based on the writer, Larry David.

Jason says in the CYE interview that he played George to be as close to Larry David as possible.

Caleb, you are referring to "The Busboy" where that same man and the bus boy have a run in at the end of the show.

I wanted to point out in the middle of the letter episode jerry talks about Elaine popping in and puts his hands in his pockets, then 2 secs later he has a water bottle in his hands and both hands out of his pocket, Jerry has the light speed reflexes of SuperMan Laughing

George is not based on Mike Costanza--he's based on Larry David. Larry really did get fired and tried to come back as if nothing happened: He was a writer for SNL at the time. The real Mike Costanza sued the show for using his last name, but lost in court.

Kramer calls George "Mike" and he calls Elaine "Carol" It has been reported that they based George Costanza's name (not his character) on Mike Costanza. It has also been revealed that Elaine's character is based on Carol Leifer (Jerry Seinfeld's real-life ex girlfriend who also worked on the show)
