Marion Crane: I better get back to the office. These extended lunch hours give my boss excess acid.

In the hardware store, we see the lady that bought insecticide walk past Lila toward the front of the store, but never hear or see her leave. Arbogast has been standing outside the door with his face close to the glass watching Sam and Lila but he did not move to allow the lady to exit. Also, the bells on the door do not sound until Arbogast enters.
Some of the opening credits split apart, just as the original's did. They segue into the opening shot of Phoenix, Arizona.
