Peggy Sue Got Married

Question: When Peggy comes home, her mom is talking to a strange man. Mom says that was nobody. Who was it, and why does mom say nobody?

Question: I never understood the significance of the girl in the wheelchair at the reunion. Peggy Sue makes a big deal out of the girl but never in her "flashback" do we see this character.

Answer: You DO see Rosalie in the past. She hosts the party at which Charlie and his group sing. And Jim Carrey asks for the lights to be turned out. She walks, and begins to dance with her boyfriend.

Chosen answer: In the original script, Rosalie (the girl in the wheelchair) injures herself in an accident. Peggy Sue tries to change things that happen in the future, including Rosalie's accident.

Question: What was Peggy Sue's mother doing when she came home early. Selling jewelry? Having an affair? Who's jewelry was she selling? is she a thief?

Answer: Rosalie is in the script but did not make the cut for the actual movie in the past. This never made a lot of sense to me until I bought a script while in New York. Rosalie was a top national athlete and diver and is involved in a diving accident. This accident leaves her in a wheelchair for life. Peggy tries to go back and warn her and stop it and is unsuccessful. As with Charlie, she cannot appear to change anything.

Question: As Peggy Sue and her friends walk down the school hall, she glances up and sees a Mylar balloon. While it is intended to remind her of the reunion, I wondered if Mylar balloons were available in 1960?

Chosen answer: It was meant to be an anachronism. When she is talking to Richard later in the film, Peggy Sue says "I am a walking anachronism", meaning she is in the wrong time for what she knows. The balloon is a physical anachronism, being something she brought back to the past with her from the reunion.

Question: Carol and Maddy are with Peggy Sue in her bedroom talking. A phantom voice says: "hey Peggy Sue" Someone please explain this unusual occurrence.

Revealing mistake: Since they used an original game, the Monopoly's box is yellowed, whereas it should look almost new.
