Trivia: There are many clues in this film that foreshadow the revealing of Christian's sexuality. but there is one that less blatant than the others. When Christian is shown entering the classroom, Cher has higher hopes for finding a great guy for herself. However, if you look over his shoulder as the camera pans over to him, you can see a headline cut out of a newspaper. It reads "On The Road To Nowhere", depicting Cher later finding out that she is barking up the wrong tree.

Trivia: Alicia Silverstone had no idea had to pronounce the word "Haitians". During her speech on why "all opposed people should be allowed refuge in America", she mispronounced it on camera. Director Amy Heckerling told the crew not to correct her as she found it funny and wanted it to be in the film.

Other mistake: When Josh and Cher are driving home from a party, they show a shot of the car. It's a blue sports car that passes a Hertz car rental sign. When Elton is driving Cher home from the party in the Valley, they show the exact same shot of the blue sports car passing the Hertz car rental sign.

Cher: Daddy's a litigator. Those are the scariest kind of lawyer. Even Lucy, our maid, is terrified of him. And daddy's so good he gets $500 an hour to fight with people. But he fights with me for free because I'm his daughter.

More quotes from Clueless

Question: What did Cher mean when she said, "this is a bigger disaster than Malibu"? What happened to Malibu?

Answer: Malibu is a hazardous place to live. It's constantly threatened by wildfires, which burn out the underbrush. Then when it rains, there's nothing on the ground to keep the mud from sliding down the hills, so mudslides are a problem, too. She was probably referring to one of the many times that this has happened.
