George mentions when he went to public school here, he used to put 50 cents in the Lincoln Savings Bank every week, thus why he got an interest check for $1900 from the Comptroller’s office “without doing anything.”
Kramer stains his floors and wraps his entire apartment with faux-wood wallpaper, to make it look like a ski lodge (“I need wood around me. Wood, Jerry…wood!”).
