This of course was the first episode that Jerry and Julia had done together. This episode also referenced, for the first time, the business of Importer/Exporter. The most notable one was when George wanted to go out with Marisa Tomei.George and Elaine thought of an elaborate scheme to hide this from Susan.
In this episode all we see is a living room and a bathroom.
In the other shows, Jerry has a bedroom and that and the bathroom are connected by a hallway which was also not present in the first episode.
Didn't Kramer/Kessler also knock on Jerry's door in this episode? It's WAY different then it is in the other episodes!
The walls are yellow, the kitchen cabinets are brown and are EMPTY!

Kramer has the idea to open a chain of make-your-own-pizza parlors and is looking for investors. Anxious Jerry sells; George plans to go down with the ship.
b: 14-Jun-90 pc: 102 w: Larry David & Jerry Seinfeld d: Tom Cherones NOTE: If you exclude the pilot and the 100th episode special, this is the only episode that doesn't have the word "the" as the first word of its title. George says they are "relationship killers." Kramer has an idea for a rollout tie dispenser and warns Jerry about the market. Jerry's trip is a disaster, but the stock turns okay for George.
Viewer Mike Greenhaus reminds me that this is the first episode that George uses the name Art Vandelay.
The name of Vandelay would be used again in "The Boyfriend" and many other episodes.
[Editor's Note: Yes, as I mention in the description of the final episode.] In this episode, the coffee shop Jerry and George go to is not Monk's. In the TV Guide entry for this episode, his character is credited as Hoffman.
