Continuity mistake: When Warren Schmidt's daughter, Jeannie, has made him lunch and they are having a conversation about the choice of coffin he purchased for her mother's funeral, there is a vacuum cleaner that appears, disappears and moves from right to left of a built-in wall curio cabinet. This vacuum cleaner action takes place in the closeup shots of Jeannie, to her right. (00:35:35)

Larry Hertzel: All I was doing was welcoming somebody into the family.
Roberta Hertzel: Larry, we've been welcomed by you, thank you so much, now would you please just drink your fucking milk and shut the fuck up.

Trivia: In the scene where Warren Schmidt falls asleep in the bath, his posture is exactly like Marat in the painting 'Death of Marat', by J.L. David. You can take a look at the original at http://www.artchive.com/artchive/D/david/marat.jpg.html

Question: When Randall takes a photo of Warren and Jeannie at the airport after the mother's funeral, what happens to the camera he uses? He seems to put it down on something behind Warren, but then walks past Warren to get his luggage. Warren walks forward toward the gate and isn't seen to pick anything up after saying goodbye. I guess he could have, but wouldn't it have been stolen by then if it was left behind? I didn't see Randall put it in a pocket or bag.

Answer: He could have picked it up. Besides, it may not have been stolen, but picked up by security, or otherwise taken to Lost and Found.
