Audio problem: At the end of the scene when Carolyn cannot sell the house, she closes the blinds and then walks across a bare hardwood floor in heels...Do you hear any noise? I don't...it would have been very echo-y in that room with no furniture or carpeting! (00:13:40)

Question: I was just wondering if anyone knows what Jane and her father Lester were talking about in the first scene Ricky films them in the kitchen. You see their lips move but naturally since he's in a different house there are no words to accompy this. Maybe a lip reader could help?

Answer: I think they were talking about how Jane never tells Lester anything anymore. He says how they used to be pals and Jane starts to say something and then I think they see Ricky move outside.
