Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when the "Blow stuff up with mind" guy is accidentally locked out and says "Is this a test?" the reflection of a camera is seen throughout the whole scene.

Continuity mistake: When Bartleby's father gives him the check for the first semester's tuition, the sweat patterns on Bartleby's shirt change from shot to shot.

Audio problem: When they first enter the building they are going to use for the fake school, Bartleby tries to put a board back in the ceiling, and a body falls to the ground. Schrader screams, but the scream is heard before he actually opens his mouth. You don't see his mouth open until the camera pans into his character, but the scream is audible about a half-second before the camera movement.

Bartleby Gaines: I could go to jail.
Uncle Ben: Don't worry, you're young. Your butt can take it.

Uncle Ben: Health insurance my ass! They don't pay for shit. You get sick on a Friday, they only pay from Monday through Thursday. You go to doctor A, they only pay for doctor B. You break your penis, they only fix vaginas.

Bartleby Gaines: What the hell happened?
Glen: An explosion of flavor. I'm working with some very unstable herbs.

More quotes from Accepted


Question: What is the song that is playing when the students are building the ramp, skateboarding, etc. (right after the "what do you want to learn" sequence)?

Chosen answer: It's Holiday, by Green Day.

Question: Since Bartleby has a talent for computer skills (creating a bogus website, fake IDs), why didn't those skills help him apply to a good college?

Chosen answer: His friend is the one that created the website and all the necessary documents for the fake school. Even if his friend was able to create such a website, this wouldn't change his transcript from high school, which would negate any abilities used to apply to another school. No matter how creative you are in falsifying documents and websites, you can't change your school transcript unless you hack the schools records, and maybe they drew the line at that. He DID apply to many colleges and was rejected by them all, as demonstrated by the beginning of the movie.
