Sam: We're supposed to be conserving water, we're in the middle of a drought.
Fiona: Droughts are for poor people. Do you think J.Lo has a brown lawn? People who use extra water have extra class!
The directors had Sam wear a lot of blue throughout the movie to standout and show she stood apart from everyone else. They tried to get all the other actors and extras to wear as little blue as possible. If you pay attention, Sam is often wearing blue and all the teenagers in the background wear jeans a lot less than you would probably see at a high school. See more...

Continuity: After young Sam loses her father in the Northridge earthquake (noted in voiceover), she appears alone on the ball field, at home plate. In the close-up much of the area is in shadow around her, but in the next wideshot the entire area is in sunlight with only the fence/backstop casting thin shadows.
Continuity: At the start, when Sam is reading the text message from Austin stating "Where have u been? We haven't talked...", on the cell display there are two bars in the battery icon in this close-up, but as she replies "We talked this morning", the battery icon is empty in the semi close-up. Then, when she reads his reply in the close-up, once again there are two bars in the icon.
Continuity: At the dance Sam is wearing silver non-platform stilettos with silvery nail polish on her toenails. As soon as Fiona and the "Siamese" twins leave the diner, in the kitchen a much relieved Sam shifts her white gown and she is wearing white platforms and her toenail polish is quite gone now.
Revealing: After the dance, during the Mercedes vs. Jaguar "race" back to the diner, much of the entire scene takes place at the same intersection of Victory Blvd and Olive Ave, filmed from different angles. Note the Jiffy Lube and Enterprise (cars) on the corners, which are actually across the street from one another.
Visible crew/equipment: As Austin is putting up the Cinderella fliers at school, David tells Austin that he listens to him but promptly gets distracted by a girl. At the start of the next shot, as the girl walks forward the red actor's mark is visible on the floor behind her, where she was standing until she got her cue. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)
