Seinfeld

Trivia: No matter who the characters in Seinfeld call, they never have to look up the phone number in the phone book. They have the phone numbers to every restaurant, hotel, and business memorised.

Trivia: Jason Alexander was always fitted with an outfit that was one size too small. This was done to make George look "uncool." On the flip side of the coin, Michael Richards was always fitted with an outfit that was one size too big, to make Kramer appear loose and lanky.

The Handicap Spot - S4-E22

Trivia: This is the episode where George's parents make their debut and when it originally aired, another actor played the part of George's father. When the role was recast with Jerry Stiller, all the scenes in this episode were re-shot.

The Masseuse - S5-E9

Trivia: One of the subplots concerned Elaine's new boyfriend, "Joel Rifkin". Within the episode, Elaine wanted her boyfriend to change his name because he shared the same name as the serial killer named Joel Rifkin who had been arrested June '93. She has a conversation with her boyfriend, Joel, and suggests he change his name to the less scary Dion, Ned, Remy and then O.J. The show aired in November, 1993, seven months before football Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson would be tried for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The Sniffing Accountant - S5-E4

Trivia: The blue jumper in the episode that Jerry wears, and that Kramer also ends up wearing that made people sniff appears in a later Seinfeld episode where George is dating the daughter of a welfare officer. She can be seen wearing it when they are sitting in George's car at one point.

The Voice - S9-E2

Kramer: They're redoing the Cloud Club.
Jerry: Oh, that restaurant on top of the Chrysler Building? Yeah, that's a good idea.
Kramer: Of course it is. It's my idea.
Jerry: Which part? The renovating the restaurant you don't own part, or the spending the two hundred million you don't have part?

More quotes from Seinfeld

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
