Question: If Lucy's father was the one that gave Henry the Beach Boys CD, how could Henry take that as a sign that Lucy remembers him?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Lucy's father previously told Henry that she only sings on days that she meets him - then you see a flash of her painting in the garage, singing a Beach Boys song. Right before he hands Henry the Beach Boys CD, he tells him that she's even singing again. Henry realized as he listened to CD - maybe if she is singing again, she is thinking of him, hence, remembering him. (It happens to be the same song that she was singing in the garage that's playing on the boat when Henry turns around to go back. It's called 'Wouldn't It Be Nice').

Why wouldn't the father just tell him directly "hey she's been painting and singing again, so she probably might remember you"

Question: Who is the artist that paints Lucy's murals? I would like to buy some of this artist's work. Please tell me it's Drew herself.

Answer: The credits have three different painters listed. They are David Carberry, Cole Chetney, and Samuel Pactol. Since there were so many pieces in the movie it's a pretty safe bet they all contributed.

Question: This isn't in the movie but in the deleted scenes (I think it's called "a second wind") Lucy entices him up to her room by saying something like "I feel a second wind coming on". What does this mean? Is it a sexual term? I know this can't be an in-joke they have together because she wouldn't remember it.

Chosen answer: "Second wind" is a term that describes a burst of energy after someone has done something tiring. It's the result of adrenaline kicking in. Even though you should be worn out, the adrenaline gives you new energy and you're able to keep going. It's not a sexual term, but it can certainly be used in a sexual context.
