Chasing Amy

Two comic book publishers, Banky and Holden, have found success with their best selling title, Bluntman and Chronic, based on an idea originated by Holden's friends, Jay and Silent Bob. At a comic-con, Holden meets Alyssa Jones, another publisher. They seem to hit it off and Holden is falling for her. However, he soon finds out that she is a lesbian and he can have no chance with her..... or can he?

Continuity mistake: When Silent Bob is telling the Amy story in the diner, his cigarette mysteriously grows from barely above the filter to about half length, then it disappears from his hand entirely, and he draws a new one. (01:30:40)

Question: I've noticed that throughout the movie, the first two fingers on many character's right hand are orange. Most noticeable when Holden sees Banky at the end and in the lesbian bar when Banky is swapping stories with Alyssa. What's the significance of this?

Answer: I'm gonna be totally honest... I'm 99% sure there's no significance. In fact, I think it's just stained skin from all the smoking people do in the movie. Most people hold their cigarettes between their first two fingers. And most of the characters are depicted smoking throughout the film, which means they had to smoke a LOT during filming to maintain continuity. I used to get occasional orange (and sometimes yellow or light brown) stains on my fingers and hands when I smoked cigarettes. Especially if I smoked more than one in a short period of time and didn't wash me hands between them. So it's probably just smoking stains on the actor's fingers. In fact, I looked, and you see Banky holding a lit cigarette in his right hand and smoking during the story swapping scene you mentioned, with gives some direct evidence to my theory. (For reference, those stains can wash off with some good scrubbing).
