Continuity mistake: When mom finds the failed test in Les's pocket, it is folded into eighths. Later, when dad shows the failed test to Les, it has only been folded into thirds.
Other mistake: When Dean compliments Les on the great driving making up for a year of boredom, Les looks around up in the air in a direction away from the car, then suddenly says "there's a scratch on my car." He then looks down on the car at the scratch and shows Dean. He said the "scratch" line before actually seeing it.
Revealing mistake: When Les' mom is doing the laundry and "finds" the Test Failed notice, you can see that she actually had it in her hands the entire time. She transfers it from one hand into the other, then puts the hand with the paper into the pocket and pulls it right back out, then knocks it off onto the floor, and acts surprised.
Trivia: The "Archies" scene was filmed at Johnnie's Broiler, now a Bob's Big Boy in Downey, California.
Dropout #1: Hey, dweebs! Does mommy hold your dicks when you piss?
Miss Hellberg: Well, Mr. Anderson... We were able to retrieve your test results from the computer. And as I suppose you already know, you failed. God giveth, and the DMV taketh away. You mustn't fuck with the Department of Motor Vehicle. We can make your life a living hell.
Les: I am so dead they're going to have to bury me twice.
