Plot hole: Lucy's dad brings up the idea for her to paint his shed. The script should have had Lucy wanting to do that on her own - without that prompting there'd be no need for them to bother repainting it every night, which they clearly don't enjoy doing.

Suggested correction: Lucy's dad and brother go to great lengths to re-enact everything that happened the day of the accident, including having Lucy paint the garage. They don't really want to do any of the things they do on that day, including eating the cake and watching The Sixth Sense.

Dr. Keats: Little Sammy Sosa's a bit shook up, but she'll be okay. She's watching the tape as we speak.
Henry: Good. How's my temporal lobe looking there, Doc?
Dr. Keats: Don't worry. You're not gonna suffer any short term memory loss. But was your head shaped like an egg before she hit you?
Doug: Hey! Don't make fun of Henry, all right? It'th not hith fault hith head'th thaped like that.
Dr. Keats: Note the intense overreaciton. That's the 'roids talking.

Question: If Lucy's father was the one that gave Henry the Beach Boys CD, how could Henry take that as a sign that Lucy remembers him?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Lucy's father previously told Henry that she only sings on days that she meets him - then you see a flash of her painting in the garage, singing a Beach Boys song. Right before he hands Henry the Beach Boys CD, he tells him that she's even singing again. Henry realized as he listened to CD - maybe if she is singing again, she is thinking of him, hence, remembering him. (It happens to be the same song that she was singing in the garage that's playing on the boat when Henry turns around to go back. It's called 'Wouldn't It Be Nice').

Why wouldn't the father just tell him directly "hey she's been painting and singing again, so she probably might remember you"
