Carol Garth Baldwin:
You're gettin' awful human, aren't yuh, Chuck?
Chuck Glover: I was always human, wasn't I.
At the very end of the movie, as Chuck and his new family are departing the movie story's location and are flying over and looking down on the now newly flooded island that had been his new wife's old home. This flooded island would actually have to be on the reservoir side of the damn when they closed the dam's flood gates that would cause the reservoir's waters to rise. However, in the very next shot their plane is shown approaching the damn from over the un-flooded river side. The reservoir where the flooded old home island they were just looking down on would in reality have to be on the other side of the damn they are now shown to be flying toward and over.
