When Kathleen writes the email to Joe about how she just told off someone at the café, Joe reads the email and logs off. You hear the AOL voice say "Goodbye."; so when he replies to her email, he just begins typing the email, without logging back on. AOL allows you to write emails offline.

Alternate Versions

Several scenes were originally scripted and partly filmed but not included in the final cut:

  • A scene in which Kathleen gets involved with two garbagemen and first gets tongue-tied.
  • Extended scenes referring to the roof-top murderer including a love affair with George.
  • A scene with Kathleen and Christina talking about falling in love.
  • Extended scenes that characterize Patricia: a presentation of an author (the woman in the later elevator scene)
  • Extended scenes that characterize Frank: he meets an famous author whom he adores.
  • Scenes on Kathleen's and Joe's childhood.
  • A scene in which Joe explains Annabel why the Shop Around the Corner had to close.
