Gary 'Jonesy' Jones: How about this, Mr. Gray? Eat shit and die.
When Jonesy and Beaver return inside the cabin after seeing the helicopters, Jonesy is wearing blue sneakers. When they notice the trail of blood and Jonesy steps over a puddle, Jonesy wears black boots.
The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow logos are covered in snow, while the Castle Rock Entertainment lighthouse beams its light across a lake covered in snow.
SPOILER: The DVD contains the original ending, in which Duddits defeats the alien using a special power, but is NOT revealed to be an alien. He then succumbs to his leukemia and dies. Jonesy and Henry then visit his gravesite in the final scene and sing "Blue Bayou."
