Five years after jilting his pregnant fiancée on their wedding day, out-of-shape Dennis decides to run a marathon to win her back.
On the March 21st edition of Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993), Director David Schwimmer discussed the scene between Hank Azaria and Simon Pegg that takes place in the locker room. Generally, if males have to be nude for a scene, they will use a nude (flesh)-colored pouch to cover themselves. However, for some reason, the pouch wouldn't stay put, and Azaria ultimately decided to forgo wearing it, but told Schwimmer not to say anything to Pegg. The reaction of shock we see from Simon Pegg when Azaria drops his towel is genuine.
Hey, maybe there's a little man in there who looks just like you but he's really good at running.
Dennis: What are you talking about?
Gordon: Just a thought.
When Dennis and Libby are sitting on the bench talking about the marathon, a close-up shows her head turned towards him, but in the next medium shot she is suddenly looking straight ahead.
Closing credits shown in (hard to read) foot-prints, as in a marathon runner running.
Two words are dubbed over in the version shown on HBO in the United States. (1) While in the bun shop, the little old lady calls Dennis a "prick" instead of a "cock". (2) When Libby is showing Gordon the bathroom, he says that he put on Italian loafers and they "hurt like hell" instead of "hurt like fuck". In both instances, the actor's mouths are clearly mouthing the correct words, which are also shown in the closed captions.
