Charlie (Cruise) and Raymond (Hoffman) eventually make it to Los Angeles. Charlie loses the deal on the cars but he and Raymond scored enough cash for counting cards in Vegas to offset the money he lost on the deals. Dr. Bruner (Molen) follows Charlie to L.A. to tell him that he is the beneficiary for the three million dollars and not Raymond, so whether Charlie wins custody over Raymond or not, he still won't get his share of the fortune. Charlie explains to him that he doesn't want his share of the money anymore and all he wants is to be with his big brother. They speak to a doctor about what to do with Raymond. The doctor asks him whether he wants to go back to Walbrook Mental Hospital or to stay with Charlie. He is unable to decide. Charlie tells him that he'll probably be sent back to Walbrook, and Raymond for the first time, realises his emotions and expresses them to Charlie, making a connection with him. Raymond gets put on the train back to Walbrook, hoping to get back before Wapner.
Continuity mistake: In the scene in the restaurant where Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman are trying to order breakfast, Hoffman's character fixes the salt and pepper shaker a certain way. In the next shot they are opposite the way he fixed them. Then in the next shot they are back to the way he had fixed them. (00:37:15)
