Factual error: Jerry digs up a natural gas pipeline in the backyard and jerks it so hard that a pipe coupling in Charlie's house breaks, venting natural gas into the house for about 4 seconds. Then Jerry uses a cigarette lighter to send a flame through the pipeline, exploding Charlie's house like a fire bomb, catching virtually every room in the house on fire. In reality, it would take an hour or more for vented natural gas to accumulate sufficiently to blow up a house, for one thing. For another thing, Jerry broke the gas pipeline in the backyard in order to ignite it; so, while the broken pipeline leading to Charlie's house had no gas pressure, the pressurized side of the pipeline was still in the backyard with Jerry. Meaning, Jerry himself should have been engulfed in fire as soon as he sparked a flame.

Continuity mistake: Ed's left hand moves back and forth from grasping Charlie's shirt collar to around his neck as the shots change from the rear of Charlie to his front.

Ed: It's too late, man. I told people what you are. You've been made.
Jerry: And you think anyone's actually going to believe you?
Ed: No, No. Don't play that crap. Don't play that mind shit with me. I'm serious. Try me.
Jerry: Okay. You said you're glad you're different.
Ed: Get back!
Jerry: How can you be in a place like this? These people. Even your best friend did nothing to help.

Jerry Dandrige: Hey, guy. You've been watching me. I've been watching you. Your mom. There's a kind of neglect. Gives off a kind of scent. And your girl? She is ripe. It's on you to look out for them because there are a lot of bad people out there, Charlie.
