Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
Raymond memorizes a phone book up to the names Marsha and William Gottsegen, Dustin Hoffman's real-life in-laws.
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...
When Raymond is insisting that he get his boxers at K-Mart in Cincinnati, he repeatedly states that K-Mart's address is 400 Oak Street. That, however, is the address of the Vernon Manor, the hotel at which Raymond, Charlie, and Susannah stay.
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.
