Why do palm reading topless?
Brodie: It makes the news easier to take. She could tell me I was going to die in ten minutes, just as long as she told me topless.
T.S. Quint: Your maleness amazes me sometimes.
After the stink palm incident Mr. Svenning becomes ill and Roddy explains that he came down with a sudden case of diphtheria. Diphtheria is an upper respiratory tract infection and would not cause excessive vomiting.
The director would like to thank:
God - for another opportunity to tell my stupid stories. Scott - for deciding not to hike around the world. Jim - for treating us like the Coens as opposed to the twenty-something know-nothings we really are. Sean - for bringing a pedigree to the project. Pierson - for keeping me pure. Mom and dad - for having sex all those years ago Kristin - for playing "Rene" to my "Brodie" far too many times than she should have. Bob - for laughing during the pitch. Dave - for even prettier pictures than the first bunch. Walt - for being the "Brodie" template, dixie cup and all. Joey - for being my "equiator." The cast and crew - for humoring me. The front credit artists - for lending us phat credibility in the world of comics. Cotty - for the cool book Fitz - for the fan-boy trading cards The audience - for showing up. And lastly... John Landis and John Hughes - for giving me something to do throughout my youth on friday nights.
In the edited for TV version in the US already mentioned, there is also one other difference of note. All references to "stink palming" are removed, and the disgusting nature of the pretzels is explained by the replacement of "They're a bit melty, but man are they tempting!" with "They're a bit moldy, but man are they tempting!"
