Look Mom, Disco!
In the beginning of the movie a can of air freshener goes off in the car. The driver's side window is partially opened. Then, when Pat goes to open the window, it is suddenly completely closed.
When ABC broadcast the film in 1983, there are scenes that were not in the theatrical cut: Dr. Ruth, communicating with patients, on monitors. During these scenes, Pat was finding ways to get out of her cage. Also, this scene includes Lily Tomlin's role as Edith Ann (Little Girl, which she played on her Broadway shows). Finally, Pat Kramer tries to reach the switches, to turn on the monitor but, she turned it on with her foot.
