Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Other mistake: In the scene when Mark Ratner asks for Stacy's phone number, there is a customer paying for a slice of pizza. Stacy tells the customer to pay $1.10. The customer gives her a dollar and change. She then gives him five cents back. The only way this could be right is if the customer gave her $1.15. If he could do that, why not the exact $1.10?

Suggested correction: In this scene, when Stacy says "$1.10, and you get 5 cents back", the price is actually $1.05 and the customer gives her $1.10 and she gives him his change, which would be 5 cents. When she says "$1.10", she was only confirming the amount the customer gave to her, not how much she wanted from him.

Pause the movie. The total on the register is $1.10 then it shows .05 change. The guy paid $1.15.

Who does that? - who pays an extra nickel just to get the same nickel back? Normally when a person overpays (and this is "normally") the cashier usually says "oops - you gave me too much."

Suggested correction: She types in what the customer gives her and the register gives the change amount back. The total bill was 1.05, not 1.10.

The register show $1.10 (as well as $0.05) before he gives her any money.
