Suggested correction: The couple is there. They are walking one lamppost before the couple in the long shot, and they are walking very slowly. In the close-up, it shows them just passing the lamppost before the couple. When they do pass the next lamppost, the couple is there as they were in the long shot.

Trivia: The first version of the screenplay had the main roles gender swapped. It was deemed too "predatory" to have a woman in a coma and a man claiming to be in a relationship with her.

Question: I've seen this movie a million times and I still can't figure out the whole "Peter having one testicle because another guy had a pencil in his back pocket because he was a lawyer while they were playing basketball" thing. I got that they were playing basketball but still, can someone please explain to me how Peter lost a testicle while playing a game? Thank you.

Answer: Peter was being boxed out by the other guy, so the other guy was putting his back against Peter's front. With a pencil sticking out of his back pocket, you can imagine how some damage might be done.
