Trivia: When Julius visits Vincent in prison, Vincent calls him "Mr. Universe", a title that Arnold Schwarzenegger held for several years, 20 years previously.

Trivia: Mary Ann Benedict mentions she had a child once, but he died at birth. This happened in real life to Bonnie Bartlett (who played Mary Ann). In 1961, she gave birth to a child who died 24 hours later.

Trivia: The singer in the nightclub scene is Nicholette Larson who was famous for the song "Lotta Love" (1979).

Other mistake: When Devito sends Arnold into the house to get his stuff and go with him to New Mexico and Houston, Devito quickly jumps into the car to drive off. (You can see on the long street behind him that there are no cars coming). Yet, not one second has gone by and you are looking at him from the front of the car and Linda and her sister pull up behind him blocking him in the driveway. They turned in from the left which was the same stretch of street you were looking at with no cars on it just one moment earlier. (00:48:40)

Vincent: Now I know you're probably used to growing your own vegetables and spearing fish on the lagoon. But here on the mainland, we just nuke it.

More quotes from Twins

Question: Why did Traven lie to Mary-Ann and tell her that Julius died at birth and that Vincent was never born?

Answer: Because the offspring of this experiment was meant to be studied, researched. Mary-Ann showed signs of maternal attachment toward the end of her pregnancy, which the scientists involved felt would hinder the experiment due to her not wanting her baby poked and prodded at all day, every day. So she was told her baby died at birth and she was sent on her way. There was no point even mentioning the second baby since she never knew she was carrying twins in the first place.
