Chosen answer: - Now hold my hand. - Yes, sweetie. - Now the story. - What story is that, sweetheart? La notte di San Lorenzo. San Lorenzo, who is...? My patron saint. And saint of my father's village. That's right. And what happened to him? He was in Rome. Mm-hm. And... I forgot. Well, many years ago...the bad guy says to him "Bring us the riches of your church." And Lorenzo, he brings them the beggars and the sick people... -...and he says... - "These are our riches." Yes! - Bravo, Lorenzo, bravo. - That's wonderful, sweetheart. So clever. And tonight, August 10th, is... La notte di San Lorenzo. The night of the shooting stars. When anything can happen.

Continuity mistake: During a conversation a clock can be clearly seen in the backround and the time is 11:50, the scene cuts to a closeup of Nick Nolte speaking, then back to the wider shot and it's suddenly become 11:55 in a matter of seconds. But it doesn't stop there, it again cuts away for a few seconds and when it comes back to a a shot of the clock it now reads 11:40.

Professor Nikolias: Do you know how many children die every year from choking on french fries? Many more than from Adrenoleukodistrophy. You see, ours is what is known as an orphan disease, too small to be noticed, too small to be funded, especially with the iron hand of "Reganomics."
