When Vanessa calls home and Denise picks up the phone, there is a cord attached to it. But when it switches back to Vanessa and then back to Denise, there is no cord attached to Denise's phone. Then the process repeats and the cord is back.
Susan Hemmings looked real sober when she was escorting the girls out of her house, but her mother said that she was drunk, too.
When Denise is trying to get Vanessa upstairs without their parents noticing, why didn't they go up the back stairs instead of going through the dining room and up the front stairs where they risk being seen by Clair? In addition, Vanessa put her hands over her mouth, implying she was going to throw up, as she started up the stairs, so why didn't she head straight for the bathroom rather than go in her own bedroom and get sick on the bed? Most people who think they're going to vomit head for the nearest toilet.
Vanessa: Daddy? Oh, Daddy...My stomach hurts. My head...EVERYTHING hurts. Please...give me something, anything...!
Cliff: (gently) Nothing I can give you, kid. There's no cure for this.
Theo: I never thought Vanessa would crack under the pressure.
Clair: What pressure?
Theo: The pressure of growing up in this family. Because of what you guys have accomplished, people expect a lot more from us than other kids. Think about it, you're a lawyer, dad's a doctor. That's a lot of pressure mom.
Clair: We never said "become a doctor" "become a lawyer", we said "go to school, get good grades, become whatever you want".
Theo: There you go, pressure! "Go to school" "become something", that's a lot of pressure, mom. All my friends see it.
Clair: Theo, when do you feel this pressure?
Theo: Every now and then.
Clair: This isn't about pressure, Vanessa got drunk because she and her friends were bored. Although they had television, VCR, video cassettes, audio cassettes, books.
Cliff: And each other.
Clair: Thank you.
Cliff: That they call every five minutes when they're away, yet they were bored together.
Clair: So you see, she did not feel any pressure from us, the only pressure she felt was from her friends.
Olivia: (about Vanessa's friend) Her mouth is fast!
Olivia: (reading) The farmer sat on the tractor.
Cliff: What happens next?
Olivia: Let me finish reading please.
