      • Goof: Gary and Uncle Phil are talking near the grave of Phil's dog, Bugle. During the scene, a shot of the dog's grave shows a headstone with a circle of white rocks lining the grave. However, when the camera pans back to the grave, the rocks that were circling the grave are gone.

      • Chuck: (closing monologue) Ah well; easy come, easy go. Who needs 20 million clams anyway? After all, this is America, where everyday is a new deal, and dreams are worth their weight in gold. Where the little guy can reach the top, even if he has to crawl up a drainpipe to get there. And where sooner or later everyone has a shot... at getting exactly what they deserve. Sister Mary Agnes found a winning lottery ticket on her doorstep and donated the dough to a foster care centre. Which, by the way, is exactly what I would have done.

      • Chuck: (opening monologue) Things connect, especially in a big city. People rub elbows, among other things. It's what you call a democracy. It's one big melting pot -- whatever that is. Where the little guy at the bottom can sit down to lunch with the guys at the top. In theory, anyway. Yup, no matter where you look, you can see it in action, the free and open exchange of ideas, the meeting of minds. Not that the system doesn't have a few bugs. The point is: there's an opportunity for all -- especially the guy with tomorrow's newspaper. Still, having a rag that tells the future isn't always all it's cracked up to be.

      • Chuck: He's kinda a cross between Zorba The Greek and Jabba The Hutt.

        This is a reference to Zorba, the title character of the 1946 novel Zorba The Greek and the 1964 film by the same name. It is also a reference to Jabba the Hutt from the Star Wars saga.
