    • Goof: When Clair and Denise are watching the Bears vs. the Giants game, they comment on how cute player number 16 is. In 1985, nobody wore #16 for either the Bears or the Giants. Former Bears' placekicker Bob Thomas wore it from 1975 to 1984 until he retired. #16 wasn't worn again by the Bears until Tim Lashar, another kicker, wore it in 1987. Also, #16 had long since been retired by the Giants. It was last worn by Frank Gifford.
