random thoughts for Valentine's day, 2004. Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.
The evening of his erasure procedure, Joel comes home with the prescription sleep medication and new pajamas he will need that night when the technicians plan to visit his apartment. As he comes home, he speaks to his neighbor in the lobby about Valentine's Day and "McRomance." During his memory erasure, he recalls this memory. However, since the memories slated for erasure have already been mapped in Lacuna's office, there is no way this particular memory could have been identified, mapped, and slated for erasure.
The opening credits don't begin until about twenty minutes into the film and after much action and plot.
