    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • 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.

      • If John knows everything, or at least most types of published information, why doesn't he know the schedule of the ferry the mystery woman was on? Instead, he has to look them up on the Internet. (contributor leroyy25 thought there were too many unpredictable factors so John would have to use the Internet...but the ferry company wouldn't update its online schedule after the fact to reflect those factors, would it?)

      • Seattle area zip codes start 98 not 90. 90404 is Santa Monica, CA. Even though they were looking at an accurate street grid of Seattle, there is no street with the name Simpson in the city.

    • QUOTES (11)

    • NOTES (2)

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

      • Music: 1) "How Near How Far" - And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead (Doe at the Bar), 2) "Behind Blue Eyes" - The Who (Doe plays on piano), 3) "The Recluse" - Magnet (Doe talks to the girl by the water), 4) "For You" - Duncan Sheik (Doe at Bar), 5) "More Than Us" - Travis (Doe contemplates his life), 6) "Thinking About Tomorrow" - Beth Orton (Doe looks at Newspaper articles)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Digger: Sounds a little Fatal Attraction to me.
        Referencing the 1987 movie which featured Glenn Close as a woman who becomes dangerously infatuated with a businessman played by Michael Douglas.
