Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
Barry Levinson shot most of the exchanges between Charlie and Raymond in profile, because Raymond refuses to make eye contact with anyone to whom he's talking.
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...
Raymond tells Charlie in the bathroom on the day he (Rain Man) was taken from his Ohio home that there was 7.2 inches of snow ("very snowy that day"). Yet, according to the Farmer's Almanac, there was no precipitation anywhere near Cincinnati on that day, which reached a high temperature of 45 degrees.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
