A young man hears a chance phone call telling him that a nuclear war has started and missiles will hit his city in 70 minutes.
Wilson was white in an earlier draft of the script.
I had to do that back there, man, I had to, you understand, huh? I had stolen stuff in my trunk, I had tickets, I had warrants, man. I had to squirt them but THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO SHOOT!
On the phone in the booth when Chip told Harry the code to nuclear war, he said that the code was, "Thor Arthur 66ZZD." In the diner when Landa asked Harry to repeat the conversation, he said the code was, "Thor Arthur 66"DD"Z".
During the rating tag at the very end, the sound of an air-raid siren plays. (This has not been included on any home video edition.)
