Derek Vinyard: Nigger, you just fucked with the wrong bull! You should've learned your lesson on the fuckin' basketball court! But you fuckin' monkey's never get the message. My father gave me that truck motherfucker! You ever shoot at fireman? You come here and ...


Goofs

The first time when Derek was stacking the sheets, he threw a stack of sheets onto the shelf behind him, where they lay all disorganized. In the next few seconds, the sheets that had been thrown keep changing positions, and the piles of sheets on the table change positions between shots.


Alternate Versions

The New Line Cinema DVD features 3 scenes deleted from the original theatrical version:

  • A scene in which an elderly black woman is harassed and made to cry on the boardwalk by a bunch of teenage skinheads.
  • A scene after the "party", in which Cameron and Seth go to a café and discuss Derek's change. They then harass a black guy/white girl couple, and then leave. A car is waiting outside, in which several black men watch them leave, before going after them. One black man inside the car remarks "Somebody's gonna get their ass whipped." The aftermath is not shown, but we later learn that Cameron and Seth were attacked.
  • A brief scene in the café near the end in which Derek winks at a little black girl and asks her if he looks okay.
