Continuity mistake: When Joe is walking in NY for the first time, his hat goes from being pushed on the back of his head to on top several times.

Continuity mistake: When Ratso finishes heating a meal he tells Joe on his bed reading a comic, to sit at the table and eat because it is hot. Joe gets up and puts his right hand on the chair - in his left hand is the comic he's reading. But in the next shot as he rests on the seat his left hand touches the table and his right hand now holds the comic.

Cass: You were gonna ask me for money? Who the hell do you think you're dealing with, some old slut on 42nd Street? In case you didn't happen to notice it, ya big Texas longhorn bull, I'm one helluva gorgeous chick.

Trivia: The most famous line in this film is purely ad-libbed. Apparently a tough New York cabbie broke through and drove across one shoot, nearly running down Jon Voight (Joe Buck) and Dustin Hoffman (Enrico Salvatore "Ratso" Rizzo). Notice Voight's startled expression. Hoffman, still in character, slams on the hood and shouts at the cabbie, "Hey, I'm walkin' here. I'm walkin' here."
