Marty

Visible crew/equipment: In the very first scene when the camera pans in to the butcher shop, you can clearly see the shadow of the cameraman on the lift.

Continuity mistake: At the Stardust Ballroom, listen to the first song the dance band is playing on the soundtrack. It skips measures and at one point is hastily spliced to begin again so as to continue because more time is needed in the scene. The MGM DVD copy is incomplete because it is missing the scene in which Clara speaks with her parents after her evening with Marty. The scene is present on the CBS/Fox VHS.

Continuity mistake: When Caterina sits in the chair while talking to Marty's mother, from one angle her hands are to her sides near the arms of the chair, but from another angle they're folded in her lap.

Marty Pilletti: Tommy, Tommy, just let me get a couple of minutes, will you? Because I promised Mr. Terry that I would let him know by tomorrow. You and Virginia can fight anytime.

Marty Pilletti: Listen Angie, I been looking for a girl every Saturday night of my life. I'm 34 years old. I'm just tired of looking, that's all. I like to find a girl. Everybody's always telling me get married, get married, get married. Don't you think I wanna get married? I wanna get married. Everybody drives me crazy.

Marty Pilletti: You don't like her. My mother don't like her. She's a dog. And I'm a fat, ugly man. Well, all I know is I had a good time last night. I'm gonna have a good time tonight. If we have enough good times together, I'm gonna get down on my knees. I'm gonna beg that girl to marry me. If we make a party on New Year's, I got a date for that party. You don't like her? That's too bad.
