What's your name?
Cindy: Go away.
Dean: "Go away"? That's a weird name.
In the beginning of the film, when Dean goes outside to look for the dog with Frankie, he takes his cigarette out of his mouth, puts Frankie down and the next shot the cigarette is back in his mouth.
The initial credits, showing major cast and crew, play over a montage of stills from the film and clips of fireworks.
