Goofs: The procedure that Jake performs on the school bus for the little girl Stacey is called a tracheotomy. It is sometimes performed in an emergency situation where breathing is prevented by a blockage in the throat. Jake says he was trained to perform the procedure in military school. Whoever trained him did a poor job. In an emergency tracheotomy the incision should be vertical, Jake makes a horizontal incision. While the horizontal incision would work, it is much more dangerous in that if the incision is too long it could sever the carotid artery. A vertical incision is much safer. Another error with this scene is when the girl regains consciousness she gasps in air with her mouth, which makes a dangerous tracheotomy defunct, although you hear the sound of air rushing through the straws after the initial gasp.
