    • TRIVIA (5)

      • After the scene where Charlie stumbles during "In the Mood," the camera cuts to Jeff and Ginger, but in the background we can see Caroline and Charlie stumbling over each other again.

      • Right before the scene where Al ties a number on Anne, they can be seen (walking behind Jeff and Ginger) already wearing their numbers.

      • Anne helps Jeff on with his jacket, and in the next scene his contest number is already on his back even though he wouldn't have had time to tie it on.

        Anne and Al--19 (Honorable mention: 18 lb. turkey)
        Charlie and Caroline--22 (Third place: Glenn Miller record set)
        Mike and Ruth--14 (Second Prize: $100, use it to buy everyone in the bar a round of drinks)
