“The Label Maker”
Jerry tries to give away Super Bowl XXIX tickets (in “row F, in front of the Gs…hobnobbing with the Ds and Es!”) to George so he can be in the Drake’s wedding party. Jerry gives them to Tim Whatley, who gives one to Newman, later Elaine, and then back to Jerry. Whatley gives his other one to Newman, as “he’s in love” with Elaine. The San Francisco 49ers won Super Bowl XXIX, defeating the San Diego Chargers 49-26 on Jan. 29, 1995.

“The Label Maker”
Tim gets this hotel for Elaine and himself during the Super Bowl…right “downtown”. Elaine requests 2 beds…”for 2 of us” to avoid sleeping with Tim.
Jerry mentions Florida in his opening monologue, noting that the state flag of Florida should just be a steering wheel with a hat and two knuckles on it, and the state motto is “drive slow, sit low.”

Bob Sacamano Sr.’s
In a deleted scene, Jerry visits a mute Bob Sacamano Sr. to fill his order of 20 “Willard” organizers at $50 a piece, as he cannot afford to buy 20 new Wizards at that price.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
George reveals to Amanda that his mother is living in Florida (perhaps in Del Boca Vista?), and he will break the news that they are back together to her, in the hopes that this will be the news that may finally kill her.
