NOTE: In an uncredited appearance writer / producer Carol Leifer appears as one of the bank employees. The scenes shot with the real George Steinbrenner for this episode, were cut from the final edit. It is reported that these scenes might be included in an episode, next season. Steinbrenner reportedly missed opening day of the Yankees' baseball season to make this appearance.
ALSO NOTE: "Is Seinfeld the Best Comedy Ever? A Case is Made" was the title of a TV Guide cover story for the week of June 1st through the 7th. This link should take you to the on-line version. In the article Jay McInerney, the author, makes his case for why he thinks it should be. I for one, agree. He also lists out ten of the most significant episodes."The Pen" "The Bubble Boy" "The Pick" "The Parking Garage" "The Junior Mint" "The Subway" "The Outing" "The Soup Nazi" "The Rye" "The Contest"
In another article, Jerry talks about next season, future seasons and the impact of Larry David's departure.
In light of recent anthrax scares in the US, the planned syndicated rerun of this episode on 22 Oct 2001 was cancelled. I don't know if this means we may never see this episode in syndication again, but that is always a possibility.
