No thanks to Elaine, Jerry must work hard to prove he is straight when a college reporter mistakenly reports that he and George are gay, "not that there is anything wrong with that." Things really get out of hand when the article is picked up by the New York Post.

NOTE: Viewer Jerry Balsam notes in this episode that Estelle claims to have been helped up by the super; however, we all know that the Costanzas live in a house in Queens.
Kyle Westphal notes George's comment about having to wait for his girlfriend to die. Of course, she becomes his fiancée first and then she does die, in "The Invitations."
The hospital scene with George and his mother, when the male nurse comes in to give the male patient a sponge bath is a take off of a similar scene in the episode "The Contest." The dialogue between George and his mom, and the nurse and patient is almost identical. The only difference is the sex of the nurse and patient, obviously to go with the theme of this episode.
Larry Charles was nominated for an Emmy for this episode.
