I like her. And knowing you don't, makes me like her twice as much.
One hour and twelve minutes into the film, Titus Semple and Fielding Carlisle have an argument in the construction office; Titus throws Fiedling out the door into the dirt then walks out the door. He stops, takes a whiskey bottle and breaks the glass in the door with Fielding's name on it. The sugar confection used in Hollywood for break-away glass flies onto Titus's cheek under his left eye. It sticks for one second then falls off.
The opening credits are presented on a book as someone turns the pages.
