Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
What Raymond says about Qantas was, and still is true. As of 2018, Qantas has never lost a jet airliner.
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...
From the time they left the farmhouse in western Oklahoma, they supposedly passed some country with mountains in the background (west) between there and Amarillo, Texas. There are no mountains in that part of western Oklahoma (though some small ones exist farther south near Lawton and Altus) - and the nearest "mountain" on that route would be Tucumcari Mountain.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
