Mistakes

At Professor Jennings' place, the stoned Boon and Katy sing "Hey Paula." The song was only pressed in November 1962 and didn't break into the charts nationally until late December of that year, whereas the scene depicted takes place sometime in the autumn of the same year, before the song would've even been recorded.
