I said "Kill it!"!
During the baptism scene on Bethesda Terrace, a man on Central Park Lake is visible in 3 separate shots, frantically trying to row his boat out of the scene.
The end credits include an infinity frames effect. A sixteen second film of a busy street is shown, and then the right and bottom of the frame is frozen in a sideways capital L. This then becomes the frame for the next iteration of the film, which in turn leaves its right and bottom edges as a frame for the next film. Over the frames and film are played thumbnails of the actors, then credit cards and finally a credit scroll.
