    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Laura is going to the library, she takes her multi-colored jacket from a hook on the back of the door. When Carl comes into the room to talk to Laura (which is actual Steve covered up in the bed), the jacket is still hanging on the back of the door. When he catches Laura sneaking back into the room, she has the jacket on and it is missing from the back of the door again.
