Young Woman Hijacker:
Please, don't hurt me. Here, take anything you want. You want some food? Take it.
Eli: I'm not gonna hurt you.
Young Woman Hijacker: Yeah? That's what the last guy said. Could... could you help me? The wheel came off. I can't fix it. Maybe if I... if I could... but I can't.
When Eli is rowing to Alcatraz, there is a half-sunken ship grounded under the Golden Gate Bridge. That would be impossible since the water is 300 feet deep under the bridge.
Aside from the title, there are no opening credits.
A montage of deleted scenes on the DVD include a scene where Claudia reads the Braille bible to Carnegie as he lies on his deathbed.
