Who is that?
Harry Crumb: Crumb, Harry Crumb.
Harry Crumb: And I hereby charge these two miscreants with the kidnapping of one Jennifer Downing.
Vince Barnes: You must be crazy, Crumb.
Harry Crumb: Crazy? Crazy like a fox. I must warn you, Vince Barnes, I have a black belt in Aikido...

During the car chase, just after Harry's car breaks free, camera mounting equipment is visible on the driver's side of Vince and Helen's car.
The British TV version included a scene near the end when John Candy is on top of a vehicle chasing after an aeroplane about to take off. The co-pilot looks out of the window, sees him and says, "What the fuck?!". This scene was not present in UK cinema and video releases which were cut to receive a PG rating, though the word was restored for the 12-rated 2008 Sony DVD.
