Amy? It's your dad.
Amy Alden: Dad?
Thomas Alden: I came down from Canada. I've come to take you home.
Amy Alden: Where's Mom?
Thomas Alden: Um...
Amy Alden: Mum died, didn't she?
Near the end of the movie, when Amy is about to land, the shadows of both Amy's plane and the crew's helicopter are visible.
At the end of the film: "In the following spring, Amy's flock took off and headed north of their own. All 16 geese including Igor returned to Amy's front porch".
The phrase "holy shit" has been removed from UK versions.
