Dutch Van Den Broeck:
How about I call you up sometime in New Hampshire?
Kay Chandler: And say what?
Dutch Van Den Broeck: Say... "You wanna go to a movie?" What do you say?
Kay Chandler: Wouldn't that be something?
The news anchors delivering the news of the plane crash report that the airplane was a Boeing 737, and a short time later rescue boats and helicopters are seen surrounding the tail section of a 737 sticking out of the bay. However, in an earlier scene, a TV in the background shows a news report containing what we are led to believe is footage of the crash site, and the airplane in the news footage is a jet with rear-mounted engines and a horizontal stabilizer mounted at the top of the tail - not the 737 shown in the later scene but probably a McDonnell Douglas DC-9 or MD-80.
