Baby Driver

Question: When the Marine in the Dodge Ram pickup interrupts the armoured car robbery, he is wearing civilian clothes, not a uniform. How do they know he is a Marine?

Answer: He has a US Marines bumper sticker on the back window of his truck.

Answer: They don't know he is a Marine per se. They are being facetious by calling him a marine based on his gung ho attitude, the fact he has some type of training, and his determination to stop the robbers. Also, his style of dress seems stereo-typically military even though he is wearing civilian clothes.

Question: During the heist at the post office, Baby shakes his head at a woman who in turn grabs a cop. When the lady was walking up, she smiled and waved like she knew him. However at the end during her testimony, it seems like she didn't know him after all. If that's the case, why did she smile and wave at him? Did I miss something?

Answer: The woman works at the Post Office and was the one who served Baby and Sam the day before. He's shaking his head at her because he doesn't want her to go in the building and get hurt/ killed in the heist that's happening at that time. She doesn't know him in a personal way like Joseph or Debora.

Question: How long did Baby serve time in prison?

Answer: Baby is sentenced to twenty five years in prison, and is given a parole hearing after serving five years of the sentence. Baby is then released after the parole hearing, spending five years in prison.

New this month Five years is correct - for one interpretation of the ending. Another possibility is that the ending we see is a fantasy and Baby served the full sentence. Some fans have this theory because Baby and Debora have not aged, and the car and her outfit are almost dreamlike in their presentation.

Question: Why did Baby Driver surrender himself to the police when he and Deborah could've gotten away?

Answer: Baby had spent years being coerced into a life of crime, something which he was never happy with, and by that point had gotten tired of continuously running from his problems. He surrendered because he knew he had done a lot of terrible things and realised it was time to pay the price for it, as well as that he did not want Deborah to go through the same life of crime that he has gone through.

Continuity mistake: The shot of Baby's car being crushed begins with the proper Ford Taurus, but the car being crushed later is actually the 3rd generation Infiniti G35. (00:33:22)
