Question: Why does Ray freak out when Charlie turns on the hot water in the bathtub?
Chosen answer: When they were children, Ray witnessed Charlie being burned by hot bath water. I think Ray says something about how he was left to look after Charlie while Charlie was in the bath, and Charlie got burned by the hot water. That memory must be very strong for Ray, and not comprehending the passing of time, Ray did not want to see Charlie hurt again.
Question: When Ray and Charlie are in the bathroom, they sing part of a song. What is the song they sing?
Chosen answer: It's "I Saw Her Standing There," written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, released November 1974. In addition to the Beatles, the song has been covered by Elton John, The Grateful Dead, Tiffany, and many others I'm sure.
