Visible crew/equipment: When Helen's storm chasing crew begins to take shelter in the building, there is a shot of everyone running down the stairs to the basement. This shot shows Preacher run into something. It looks like a hand-held camera.

Continuity mistake: When the cow blows by the truck, the truck is driving down an empty dirt road with water on both sides. During the shots of the occupants, the road behind the truck is paved and dry. Also in one of these rear shots a truck (Red Chevrolet Blazer) drives by in the opposite direction. (00:42:25)

More quotes from Twister

Trivia: The oil tank truck that narrowly misses Bill and Jo's truck during the final tornado sequence bears the logo of the "Benthic Petroleum" company, a fictional company that also appeared in James Cameron's "The Abyss". The same special effects company worked on both films.

Question: It's obvious that Jo still has feelings for Bill at the beginning of the film, so why, after he sort of admits that he still has feelings for her, does she purposefully go ahead and sign the divorce papers, after purposefully not doing so in the beginning?

Krista

Answer: She signs it as at the time she was very annoyed with Bill. She wanted to stop and pick up the sensors but Bill dragged her into the truck instead and then even reversed and hit the machine.

Chosen answer: Jo finally signs the divorce papers after she sees how upset Bill's fiance is getting after all the near misses with the tornados. She also sees that Bill does care for his new fiance and she finally decides not to stand in the way of his new relationship, even though it did not work out in the end.
