** {{Foreshadowing}}: Jerry talks with his parents about his and Elaine's recent breakup. His mother scolds him for being too picky about women in relationships and tells him nobody's perfect. It's safe to say that Jerry never takes this advice for the rest of the series.

** The episode has an unusually happy ending, with Jerry and Elaine solving their relationship issues like mature adults. As they became less and less sympathetic over the course of the show, this rarely happened in subsequent episodes.

* RememberTheNewGuy: This was Elaine's first episode, but six months passed between the airing of the pilot and this one, and presumably just as much time passed in-universe. She and Jerry met, dated, and broke up in that period, and we see their friendship InMediasRes.

** Jerry and Elaine's prior romance is a much bigger factor here than it would later become. Justified; they had only just broken up. In later episodes, Jerry has no problem discussing women with her.
