Factual error: The movie is supposed to take place over the course of a single summer. In one section of the film, Bobby is reading a story about VP Nixon's recent Presidential nomination, which took place in 1960. Later, he is reading a story of Maury Wills base stealing record, which occurred in 1962. (00:25:00)
Factual error: At the end of the movie Bobbie is riding off on his Schwinn Phantom. The film has been reversed, as it shows the kick stand of the bike on the right side of the bicycle. The kickstand on a Phantom, as all other bikes, is on the left. (01:31:30)
Ted: We're all time's captives, hostages to eternity.
Bobby: Ben Jonson?

Ted: You know, when you're young, you have moments of such happiness, you think you're living in someplace magical, like Atlantis must have been. Then we grow up, and our hearts break in two.
Ted: We're all just passing through, kiddo. Just passing through, that's all.
