In the second scene of the Stakeout, Stan-Caddy-comment-dude said he couldn't suss what the 'When you're dead, you're dead' line was about. I think it's a quote from Holden Caulfield from 'Catcher in the Rye' by J.D.Salinger. Holden... someone else strolling aimlessly round New York. Either a (too) subtle hint at the next nine series or I'm talking rubbish. Either way.

Viewer Ross Raniere remembers that when this episode was rerun on NBC, Jerry and Julia come on in a bumper before the show started. Jerry mentions how many episodes they've done so far, with Julia sitting next to him on the set's couch. He then said, "And this is the very first one we did." Jerry then says something about "the chemistry" and just as the bumper was about to fade, he and Julia embraced each other as if they were going to kiss. This of course was the first episode that Jerry and Julia had done together. Jerry discounted the Seinfeld Chronicles episode.

What's all this about??

yes, I agree Ronda, I never saw this "bumper" part. Hmmm. Also, when jerry badgers his mother about the message she wrote elaine, it ws very similar to the conversation elaine and boyfriend jake jarmel about the exclamation point. I think jerrry says something about "how did she sound?" "what was the tone in her voice?"
Much like jake stating, " I just took down the message, i didnt know I had to capture the mood of each caller.
