Character mistake: The last time Doc tries the defibrillator on Norris, he uses it on the abdomen instead of on the chest.
Nauls disappears and is never seen again. Garry is killed by Blair who turns into the Thing. It destroys MacReady's detonator so instead MacReady throws a stick of dynamite at it. The building explodes. MacReady stumbles to a shack to find Childs there. They take swigs of a bottle of whiskey as the camera shows a wide shot of the camp in flames. Childs and MacReady sit around not knowing if the other is the Thing or not...
Clark: I dunno what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is.
Trivia: The ruins of the American and Norwegian camps are actually the same set. Carpenter saved $750,000 by only filming the one set with different lighting rather than building a second one.
