Casual Person

Revealing mistake: The 'solid fuel' hatch on the shuttle is not burning the coal. The gas jets can just be seen at the bottom of the hatch, and the fire nearly goes out as the shovel blocks the gas.

Revealing mistake: The doctors who are beating up the patient at the Ronald Reagan hospital are actually hitting the mattress. One of them on the left keeps waiting for the patient to move away to avoid hitting him.

Steve McCroskey: Jacobs, I want to know absolutely everything that's happened up till now.
Jacobs: Well, let's see. First the earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes. And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes. I couldn't believe it.

Trivia: Continuing a joke from the first movie, where every exterior shot of the jet is accompanied by the drone of a prop plane, the exterior shots of the shuttle feature the sound of a jet engine, even in space.
