Question: Harkin didn't even eat the peanut butter. If so, why'd he get an attack?

Question: Is the scotch trick Kevin Spacey played on Jason Bateman a nod to "Hopfrog" by Edgar Allen Poe? To those of you who are wondering, Hopfrog is a deformed dwarf Jester who is forced to amuse a tyrant by being forced to drink wine because "it excited the poor cripple to madness, and madness is no comfortable feeling." Hopfrog avenges himself that very night, but I was just wondering.

Continuity mistake: The amount of damage on the guys' car decreases between shots during the race.
