Portions of this episode are based on Larry David's angry resignation from the writing staff of Saturday Night Live. The writer immediately regretted the decision and decided to just show up the next day, pretending the whole thing never happened.
George being barred from the bathroom was inspired by writer Larry Charles' use of the private bathroom in Larry and Jerry's office, much to their annoyance.
Newman was originally meant to appear on camera in this episode, but the role eventually became an off-camera character voiced by Larry David. Wayne Knight re-recorded all of Newman's lines for syndication.
