Sarah Paulson said: "Todd Haynes told me he wanted me to learn how to drive a 1949 Packard stick shift. Stick shift! I don't drive a stick shift in a car today, much less in a tank like that, much less with Cate Blanchett in the passenger's seat."
So that's the deal. I won't, I cannot negotiate anymore. You take it or leave it. But if you leave it, we go to court. And if we go to court... it'll get ugly.
Carol Aird: And we're not ugly people, Harge.
"When Carol and Therese are driving through the Lincoln Tunnel, a close up of Therese through the window of the taxi from the beginning of the film is used."
^ The closeup of Therese through the taxi window is not a goof. It appears briefly in the Lincoln Tunnel scene because the scene is her memory of it. Therese's ride in the taxi after just seeing Carol again makes her think of her first ride in Carol's car. This film begins where it ends and the story is a circle between these bookends. In this tunnel scene the conversation between Carol and Therese is distant and barely audible, and Carol's face blurs and comes into focus because it is Therese's remembrance of this moment in time.
