Dave is deaf, and Wally is blind. They witness a murder, but it was Dave who was looking at her, and Wally who was listening.
To prepare for his role, Richard Pryor went to Braille Institute in Los Angeles, where he was taught "cane technique" (the correct way a person who is blind uses a white cane) and visited classrooms to observe mannerisms of the blind students.
Do you really think you can stop Khomeini?
Dave: Not if it's funny.
When Dave's mug shots are taken, the board he's holding is in a different position when the police officer is trying to photograph Dave and when Dave speaks to Wally.
