Trivia

Fairuza Balk's exclamation, "Does anybody remember laughter?" is a reference to an additional lyric Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin) would often insert in live performances of "Stairway to Heaven".


Quotes

Elaine Miller: I can't believe you wanna be Atticus Finch. Oh, that makes me feel so good.
Young William: I like him.


Goofs

In the Untitled version, when William and Lester Bangs are alone on the San Diego corner, just after Lester refers to "his many fans", a 1990s Obey Giant (aka "Andre Has a Posse") poster is on the traffic box on the left.


Crazy Credits

At the beginning of the film, right when the 'vinyl records' credit comes up, you can hear a record player needle land on a record. There is a bit of fuzz, and the music kicks in.
