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 hears the strange noise in Charlie's room, we see bright daylight through the curtains in both rooms. Upon being brought back to his room shortly after, Rainman remarks that it is several minutes before 11pm (bedtime). When Charlie turns off the lights for Raymond to go to sleep, the room is totally dark.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
