Factual error: Trying to cozy up to Ike, who she knows to be a Miles Davis fan, Maggie gives him a battered-up LP of Davis's "Kind of Blue" album, which he tells here is very rare. Truth is, "Kind of Blue" is one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time, and is not rare at all. Furthermore, the album and initial CD pressings had been (inadvertently) mastered at the wrong speed; the mistake wasn't corrected until relatively recent CD issues. The long-player is, in other words, virtually worthless on any count, especially in a jacket as beat-up as the one Maggie gives to Ike.
Continuity mistake: In one of the last scenes, on the balcony in NY where Maggie is telling him all the things she has realised, Ike asks if he needs to be writing these down. In the next shot, he is holding a piece of paper, yet she has never handed it to him.
Peggy: Have you heard my husband's morning show?"Wake Up With Flem?"
Trivia: In the scene that pans past the front of the bakery, the man sitting on the bench is the famous Baltimore Colt quarterback, Johnny Unitas.
