Dumb and Dumber

Plot hole: After Lloyd's encounter with Seabass in the restroom at the gas station, we see the FBI waiting for Harry and Lloyd at the Colorado border (we even see a front shot of the road and mileage sign), and there is no town in sight. Then we see Harry and Lloyd 3 miles from the border, driving toward it, where the FBI are waiting. Then we see Lloyd coming out of a market in a little town, after which, upon leaving the town, he drives in the wrong direction. How did they suddenly come upon this little town, especially when they were only 3 miles from the border? Did they turn around, or what happened? (In the unrated version, the van scene 3 miles from the border is extended, and it seems that they would have reached the border, and the FBI, by now.) The whole scene here is pretty confusing.

Suggested correction: Why couldn't this little town be inside those 3 miles? They stop there right after they talk, Lloyd made the wrong turn, maybe, 200 yards from the cops on the border, and they didn't see him at night... What's wrong?

Plot hole: By the time Lloyd gets to the airbridge the plane had already left. The finalisation of the boarding process after last call, plus push back takes at least 15 minutes. Lloyd would have easily caught up to Mary or the plane would have still been there.

Suggested correction: When looking for Mary with briefcase in hand, Lloyd is doing eenie meenie miny moe with the flight schedule monitors. So he has no idea what gate she is at, he could have been running around for 15 minutes before finding the right plane.

Visible crew/equipment: When Lloyd is daydreaming about Mary as the doors to Mary's house open and Lloyd picks up Mary. He lifts up her skirt to show a little flesh, in the background you can see the feet of two crew members laying on the ground holding the doors open. (00:31:10)
