Continuity mistake: This makes the second time that this mistake - discussed earlier - occurs. After Klopeck's house blows up, Carol Peterson drives back into the neighborhood to notice all the commotion. The first camera shot (shown from inside the vehicle) shows the front passenger's head rest to the seat is missing. Next camera shot (shown from the outside of the vehicle) shows the head rest as being back on the passenger's seat.
