After the verbal confrontation in the bar, the gang leaves and is passing by the restaurant where the blond college boy, Clark, is now sitting with his friends, Will slaps a paper with the Skylar's phone number (555-1294) against the glass, saying "I got her number. How do you like them apples?" In the United States of America, there is no 555 telephone exchange. Historically, a 555 exchange has often been used in movies and TV shows so that real phone numbers won't be called after the movies or shows are seen.
At the end of the credits, the film is dedicated to the memory of poet Allen Ginsberg and writer William S. Burroughs, both of whom died in 1997.
