Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
At the beginning of the movie, when Danny and Wendy are still in Boulder, we see Danny talking to Tony in the bathroom mirror. The Disney character Dopey Dwarf is on Danny's bedroom door; however, when the doctor comes to check on Danny after his incident, Dopey is missing.
The party music plays over the closing credits. After it ends, we hear the Overlook Hotel ghosts applaud. They then talk amongst themselves until their voices fade away.
