Visible crew/equipment: When Melissa dodges the truck that has fallen from sky and Dusty rushes to open a door and help Melissa get out of the truck, the reflection of a camera is seen in the bottom right corner of the truck window. As they move out and pan to the right, you can see a reflection of the same camera and cameraman at the bottom right corner of the truck door as they move away. (00:33:50)
Continuity mistake: When the cow blows by the truck, the truck is driving down an empty dirt road with water on both sides. During the shots of the occupants, the road behind the truck is paved and dry. Also in one of these rear shots a truck (Red Chevrolet Blazer) drives by in the opposite direction. (00:42:25)
Continuity mistake: When they're in the town with the drive-in movie, we see Melissa in her motel room crawling up onto the bed towards her pillow. You can see she has shoes on but no socks. We see her twirling her engagement ring around on her finger, then see her use the remote to turn the TV off. She watches the curtains blow for a minute and then she walks out of her motel room. She has on white socks. Then as she runs to grab Billy's hand, she has on black socks.
Trivia: While he enjoyed the finished film, star Bill Paxton admitted he wished "Twister" was a bit darker and edgier. For a while around 2010, he tried to get a sequel off the ground to deliver this more intense vision, and he was even interested in potentially directing the follow-up. Little is known about what the sequel would have been about, although Paxton hinted he wanted to utilize 3D filming techniques (which had been re-popularized by James Cameron's "Avatar") to really put the audience into the tornado chases. Unfortunately, the sequel never came together.
Dusty: He's gonna rue the day he came up against The Extreme, baby. Bill, I'm talkin' imminent rueage.
Melissa: She didn't marry your penis... Okay, she didn't only marry your penis.
