Dave is deaf, and Wally is blind. They witness a murder, but it was Dave who was looking at her, and Wally who was listening.
To prepare for his role, Richard Pryor went to Braille Institute in Los Angeles, where he was taught "cane technique" (the correct way a person who is blind uses a white cane) and visited classrooms to observe mannerisms of the blind students.
Shazaam! Can you hear me?
Dave: Wally! I heard you! I heard your voice!
Wally: Hooray! You can hear me!
Wally: You can hear me!
Dave: No, schmuck, I'm deaf! I'm deaf! Now do you get it?
In the shootout between Wally and Sutherland, one of Sutherland's bullets hits a fireplace iron, knocking it over. In the next few shots, the iron is back in its upright position.
