Did You Know?


Beverly Sutphin's friendly wave to her family while she is chasing Scotty was improvised by Kathleen Turner. John Waters didn't notice the bit until a screening where the audience laughed at it.


Eugene Sutphin: That's a nice dress you're wearing this morning, Misty.
Misty Sutphin: Thanks.


In the first Sutphin family dinner scene, Beverly (Kathleen Turner) serves Misty (Ricki Lake) a piece of meatloaf. In a medium shot of Beverly, the piece of meatloaf is clearly the end or "heel" of the loaf, dark and rounded on one side. In the next shot, a medium shot of Misty, the piece of meatloaf is from the middle of the loaf, a lighter shade, large, and not rounded on one side.
