Corrected entry: During the blackout when Kyle McLachlan runs down the street after stealing antibiotics from a drugstore, all the lights in the stores he passes are obviously on.

Correction: A lot of stores have generators for just such instances. Especially in an area that would have to worry about earthquakes causing power outages. (During the Northeast Blackout in August 2003 there were plenty of stores that had generators and therefore had lights on.)
