  • Trivia

    • In one scene Mr. Ehlert tells Frankie that the car dealership would be open on Easter and that she would have to work. However, according to Indiana state law, car dealerships are prohibited from being opened on Sundays, and since Easter is always a Sunday there is no way the dealership would be allowed to be open anyway.

    • Mike knocks on his dad's door and his dad moves the "Montgomery Ward" Post-It note from the door and sticks it to the curtain beside the inside door pillar. As the scene moves between cuts, the Post-It note moves up and onto the door pillar and finally disappears altogether and is replaced by two totally different Post-It notes saying "At Garage Sale back in 5" and "At the Jump back in 5 min".

  • Quotes

    • (Mike, Brick, Axl and Sue all discuss their plans for Thanksgiving much to Frankie's chagrin)
      Frankie: Do you people realize what I have gone through this week to make Thanksgiving happen? And now you guys don't appreciate...
      (interrupted by a car honking)
      Axl: There's my ride. (to Frankie) I figured once my friends came to pick me up for snowmobiling, you'd be too embarrassed to say no.
      Frankie: You figured wrong.
      (opens door) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (car drives away)
