Continuity mistake: When Sam is making grilled cheese sandwiches with the ironing board and iron, he finishes one sandwich and places it on top of another on the side table. After Joon's explanation of cheese and culture the camera cuts back to Sam placing another finished sandwich on the side table on the same place that he placed the first but there is only one sandwich there where there should be two.

Question: What exactly is wrong with Joon? I don't think they mentioned it in the movie, but does anyone have a good guess?

Answer: I would guess high functioning autistic. Similar to Rainman. Especially her being obsessive compulsive.
