    • John: So I used a nail file and a toilet to cut a piece of the window she touched. Karen: Oh – I bet that went over well. Digger: Color me dense, but I am more confused then a eunuch at Vegas.

    • Frank: Boy, like I haven't had a freaky enough day already, now you gotta walk in my door again? John: 2 across – "Mesopotamia." 13 down – "Grover Washington." Frank: What are you? John: Beats me.

    • Frank: (to John) What are you, battery-operated or something?

    • John: What color is that? (Frank stares) I’m color-blind. Frank: Really? You and my schnauzer.

    • (on John's own “Missing” posters) Have You Seen Me? I’m Missing.

    • Grace Zabriskie is credited but has no dialogue and only appears for about 30 seconds.

    Trivia (7)

    • Issaquah is 15 miles east of Seattle on I-90. There are no surface streets from Seattle there without a serious detour on John's part.

    • If John knows all factual data that exists, shouldn't he be able to identify the fingerprint himself? Why does he need the police computers? Fingerprints are categorized primarily by points of identificaton, which are in a computer database.

    • Doe not only couldn't see that she was banging on the window (maybe we're to assume he "investigated" around and found her fingerprints?), but how come the fingerprint is only of the thumb, perfectly? Why aren't there marks of the rest of her finger and if there are, why didn't Doe get them? Theresa was clearly banging on the glass with her entire hand, not just her thumb.

    • How did Doe know that there was a fingerprint on that piece of glass he cut off the boat? Remember he didn't see that woman banging on the glass, he only saw her once she was on the back of the ferry and calling out to him.

    • Trivia: The last scene as the mysterious woman holds the printout and looks over a bunch of old buildings with a shining castle in the background, was filmed in the Cairo City of the Dead, a four-mile-long walled necropolis in Egypt and the castle is actually the Citadel.
