Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?
Lenny: Uh, yes sir, they're finally, uh, clearing EPA; uh, just one or two more days.
Charlie: Three times? ...
In the restaurant scene when Charlie causes Raymond serious injury, the pack of cigarettes on the table changes. It starts with the pack being normal, then it shows it slightly crushed and then it returns to normal.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
Most airline versions of the film completely cut out the discussion of crash statistics. The reference to Qantas being the only international airline to have a perfect service record was deleted from the in-flight version of the movie by all international airlines except for Qantas.
