Memento mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: At Natalie's house, when she is leaving and Lenny is taking a picture of her, the background looks totally different than from what is shown on the picture: the curtains are opened wider, the door is half open, there is a lamp on the left and there is no mirror on the wall.

Deliberate mistake: When Leonard snaps a picture of Jimmy's body his head is lying between his shoulders looking straight up, but in the polaroid his head is lying to the right, and it is, in fact, a different actor altogether.

Deliberate mistake: When Natalie writes the 'Dodd' note at her home, it just reads, "Dodd, MonteRest Inn on 5th St., room 6, put him onto Teddy..." However when Leonard reads the note in the car and at the motel, the note now reads, "Dodd, white guy, 6'2", blonde, MonteRest Inn on 5th St..."

Deliberate mistake: At the start of the film, when it's shown in reverse that Teddy lifts his head off the floor and his glasses rise up towards his face, in this particular shot it is very apparent that it is NOT Joe Pantoliano, who plays Teddy, that lifts his head off the tile.

Deliberate mistake: Leonard shows up at Natalie's door and shows her the picture of Dodd. However when Leonard actually takes that photo of Dodd, not only does his face differ, the blood on his face differs from the photograph as well.

Deliberate mistake: In Natalie's bedroom, as Leonard is dressing, she sits at her vanity table, picks up a bright red hair pick and pulls her hair up with it. Just before kissing him, in the shot facing Leonard, the pick in her hair is lavender.

Deliberate mistake: When Leonard first writes Teddy's number on his picture, he writes 555-1134. In the rest of the movie, it is written as 555-0134. The handwriting differs as well as the truck seen behind Teddy.

Deliberate mistake: The license plate on Teddy's car is constantly changing. When Leonard reads his card of the plate number, it could end either with 7IU or 71U since his I's and his 1's are written in the same way. When Natalie gives him the information, the car's registration ends in 7IU. Even the car's plate is both 7IU and 71U. Leonard's tattoo of the number ends in 71U, but he says 7IU.

Deliberate mistake: When Leonard takes the photo of his newly acquired Jaguar, the car's hood is parked right up in front of the shrubbery and its shadow is in front, at the hood, seen when Teddy arrived. The actual photo of Leonard's 'new' Jaguar shows it to be nowhere near any shrubs and its large shadow is cast on its right side.

Deliberate mistake: On the back of Natalie's photo the words, "She has also lost someone she will help you out of pity" differ. First, going into the restaurant, second, while in Natalie's bedroom and third, when he writes it at her house.

Deliberate mistake: In room 304 Leonard takes the papers that Natalie gave him out of the paper bag, he turns the bag over and written on the bag is "For Leonard from Natalie" with a line drawn underneath the words, It is written completely differently than when it was seen earlier as the waiter at the diner gives the bag to him when he came out of the restroom.

Deliberate mistake: The reminder note that said, "City Grill Main St. today 1:00pm meet Natalie for info.," which Natalie wrote on a pharmacy bag, is seen in Leonard's hand at the Discount Inn just before he goes to meet her at the City Grill and in her bedroom when she writes and hands it to Leonard. The words on the bag are written differently, particularly the words "1:00pm meet Natalie for info."

Deliberate mistake: On the upper right corner of the notes Leonard took about the police report, he wrote down the phone number of a detective (Brian Mezear?). It has 8 digits, intead of the 7 or 10 it should have.

Quotes

Leonard Shelby: I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?. Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different.

Mistakes

In the scene in which Leonard writes on the back of his picture of Teddy, "He is the one. Kill him," we see a shot of Leonard placing the picture on top of his tan jacket on the bed as he goes to write on it. Then, it goes to a close-up of the picture in which the jacket has disappeared and the picture is lying directly on the blue bedspread. It actually happens twice within that same scene.

Trivia

In the scene where Lenny is on the phone describing how Sammy Jenkis ends up in a home due to the death of his wife, it shows Sammy sitting in a chair looking towards the camera. Sammy is temporarily blocked from our view by someone walking in front of him. As the person passes by, it is not Sammy that re-appears, but Lenny. To see it well, you will have to use the frame-by-frame mode. There are about 5 visible frames of Lenny in the home, and then it cuts back to him inside the motel room talking on the phone again.
