Question: What are the sound effects to produce the "strange in scary sound" in Lardass' stomach before he pukes for the first time?

Chosen answer: A cello.

Question: It's established that the vast majority of the movie takes place in 1959. But what year do the present day scenes take place in, when Gordie is an adult?

Chosen answer: It isn't specficially stated, though it I'd presume it to be 1986, the year the film was released. Since Gordie was "12 going on 13" in 1959 (therefore born 1946/47) and assuming it is set in 1986, it makes Gordie about 40, which roughly looks about right physically.

Question: Why would they use real leeches? Isn't that a danger to the actors?

Chosen answer: Leeches are not dangerous, just disgusting. While fairly easy to remove, leeches will fall off by themselves when they are full. They are not known to transmit any diseases though the wound can get infected just as any other scratch might.

Question: What game are they playing at the beginning of the film in the treehouse?

a river runs through it

Chosen answer: Its a game called three-penny-scat. I'm not 100% on the rules, but I think you get three cards, take the value of them (Royalty =10) and whoever gets closest to thirty wins. According to the book, it's one of the most boring games invented but "it was too hot to think about anything more complicated".

Quotes

Vern: Geez, Gordie, why couldn't you have gotten breakfast stuff like Twinkies, Pez and Root Beer?
Gordie: Sorry, Vern. I guess a more experienced shopper could have gotten more for your seven cents.
