Continuity mistake: The dash or speedometer of the Ferrari is visible multiple times, but two different dashes are seen. In one the speedometer has a top speed of 160 (garage men speeding down the road, when Cameron sees the mileage is too high, and when Cameron sees the miles aren't coming off). In the other it has a top speed of 120 (when they get in the car to leave the garage, and looking over Ferris' shoulder at Cameron leaning on the car in the garage before he kicks it [open matte version]). The two dashes also use a different font for the numbers. (00:55:00 - 01:09:40)

Question: What did Rooney mean when he told Grace to "go soak your head"?

Answer: It's an old insult, somewhat equivalent to 'buzz off'.

Brian Katcher

Answer: The other answer (about buzzing off) is correct, but the phrase has multiple definitions. It can also mean that someone doesn't know what they're talking about, or a person who is extremely frustrated and unable to express themselves calmly or coherently need to cool off.
