“The Label Maker”
Kramer tells Newman he’s “taking the Congo as a penalty!” for sneaking in and cheating at Risk. “Notes About Nothing” on the Season 6 DVD brings up the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire) in reference to Kramer’s threat – however, the DRC did not change its name from Zaire until 1997 (two years after the episode aired), and the “Congo” territory in Risk actually comprises of the entire Congo Basin, a 3.7 million square kilometer range that spreads across nine African countries (Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia).
“The Shower Head”
Elaine mentions her and Mr. Peterman are going to live with the Masai bushmen of the Kalahari, and bushwomen…this, however, is a bit of a geographical conflict, as the Masai are traditionally based in Kenya, while the Kalahari desert spreads 900,000 square kilometers across Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.
