Corrected entry: In the scene where O'Bannion gets paint dumped on him by the freshmen. He walks across the street and yells at and pushes Mitch.

Corrected entry: When Pink and Don are driving around at night in the orange car and throwing trash cans at mailboxes, there is an obvious mistake. First, Don throws a trash can and then encourages Pink to throw one. When it is Pink's turn to throw, it shows a rear view of the car and an arm reaches out to pick up the trash can. It should be Pink's arm, but, as you can tell be the green shirt with the rolled up sleeves, it's actually Don's arm.
