  • Trivia

    • When George goes to the vacation house, she gets out of Rube's truck and is wearing rose-colored glasses. Rose-colored glasses are worn when remembering things better than they may actually have been.

    • Goof: When Crystal is checking over her and Roxy's work, the entries shown on the screen are exactly the same as the ones shown earlier on George's screen.

    • Goof: While the wide shot of Daisy and Mason's computer screen shows the correct number and placement of columns, the close-up on the final two entries omits the Date of Death and Place of Death columns.

    • We learn that Daisy Adair died on 13 December 1938 in Marietta, Georgia of Asphyxiation/Smoke inhalation. Her last thought was "Why has no one ever loved me?"

    • The Boeing 747 was first developed in the mid to late 1960s. Its first commercial flight was by Pan Am January 21, 1970 flying from New York City to London.

    • Daisy mentioned Richard Burton as part of an answer to Mason's question about British actors she has been with in which Mason says he's Welsh. This is despite the fact that Wales is part of Britain.

    • One of Rube's last thoughts is "I wish I'd taken better care of Lucy". This is probably not Rube's last thought, because Rube wouldn't have paperwork of reaping himself. But, it could potentially be what Rube was thinking when he died. Rube did feel regrets about his family, post-mortem.

    • Daisy claims to have died on the set of Gone With The Wind - which was shot in Hollywood, not Marietta.

    • There were no 747s in 1938. There weren't even any jetliners. 747s didn't come around till the late 50's or early 60's.

  • Quotes

    • Mason: (on a man's last thought) Last thought: "I should have apologised to Mr. Roy about the broken phonograph." Now what the f**k am I meant to file that under?

    • (A Graveling throws a glass cup at the reapers.)
      Rube: C***sucker! (Rube middle fingers the Gravelings.)

    • Daisy: What do you say the very second we're done here, we go back to my place for a drink?
      Mason: Don't fuck with me Daisy.
      Daisy: I probably won't, but a drink isn't gonna kill anybody, least of all us. Right?

    • George: (voiceover) Maybe Daisy was right. Maybe death was the temp job and life was the vacation - a vacation you were supposed to spend with the people you loved, with people who loved you. And if life was that kind of vacation, what then? What would your last thoughts be then?

    • Roxy: (about Crystal) Does it type?

    • George: (voice over) That's the thing about life, isn't it? How can something be so boring and extraordinary at the same time?

    • (Rube is lighting his pipe)
      George: You can't smoke in here(!)
      Rube: Ah, fuck that bullshit! They can blow me.

    • George: Hey, can you steal me a car?
      Mason: First of all the correct phrase is 'boost' George. Second of all, I am not a used car lot and darling you really have to learn to steal your own cars.
