The large-nosed C.D. Bales is in love with the beautiful Roxanne; she falls for his personality but another man's looks.
The movie was made and released about three years prior to a straight French language version of the film's source classic tale Cyrano de Bergerac (1990) which starred Gérard Depardieu in the title role.
Dixie! Hi, how you doing, girl? Yeah, I'm on my way. I'll be there in about five minutes. I'm bringing it! I've only had it a year and a half, I told you I'd return it. OK. So long. Talk to you later. All right. All right. Bye.
In explaining quarks to C.D., Roxanne (an Astrophysics PhD student who should know better) mentions that there are six types of quarks and that the "top" and "bottom" are the most common kinds. She meant "up" and "down" (which form protons and neutrons). Experimental evidence for the predicted "top" quark was not announced until 1995, 8 years after the film's writing.
Roxanne tells Charlie that she has named the comet 'Comet Charlie' - after her dad.
