The large-nosed C.D. Bales is in love with the beautiful Roxanne; she falls for his personality but another man's looks.
When C.D. (Steve Martin) is consulting the plastic surgeon about getting a nose job he holds a picture of the nose he wants up beside his nose. The picture is of his real nose.
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.
Comet Kowalski/Charlie flies through the night sky as the credits roll.
