Corrected entry: In the scene after Joel drops his parents off at the airport, he pours himself a whisky and coke. During the closeup he is pouring "New Coke" into the glass but when the shot changes he is setting down a can of Coca-Cola Classic.

Correction: It couldn't have been "New Coke" that he was pouring in, because this movie was released in 1983, and New Coke didn't come out until 1985.

Visible crew/equipment: While Lana and her friend are staying at Joel's house, after dinner, Lana goes upstairs to visit Joel in his room to see if he wants to go out for ice-cream. As Lana enters the room, the bedroom door swings open and you can see a crew member's hand catch the doorknob, just before the camera pans to the right.
