A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving with an obnoxious slob of a shower curtain ring salesman as his only companion.
The trunk Steve Martin trips over is stamped: "Del O. Griffith C/O American Light Fixtures Shower Curtain Ring Division P.O. Box 60608 Chicago, IL" 60608 is also a zip code for Chicago.
Was that seat hot or what? I feel like a Whopper. Turn me over, I'm done on this side. I'm afraid to look at my ass. There'll be griddle marks.
When Neal is walking from the parking lot (where his rented car should be) to the main terminal, a brief clipping indicates that the sun is going down. However, when Neal is at the terminal, it appears to be mid-afternoon.
As the title Planes, Trains & Automobiles scroll across the screen, we hear the sound of them at the same time.
Some network TV versions include an alternate version of the scene where Neil confronts the car rental lady. This version (which has presumably been reshot) removes all the four-letter words from the scene.
