After Cherry 2000 short circuits, Sam has her "lifeless" body lying in bed next to him. As she lies there staring blankly ahead, the rise and fall of her chest can be seen as the actress continues to shallowly breathe.

When Sam first arrives at the Sky Ranch and sits down with Ginger at the pool she is wearing a pink bandanna. The next seen it has completely disappeared off her head and she is seen picking it up off the chair when she walks off.

There is a crewman plainly visible (in HD) on the right side of the tunnel, possibly holding a boom mic.
"E" Johnson drives a classic "64 & 1/2" Mustang, until the car is picked up by the magnet when it magically turns into a less classic "66" Mustang. Then it's back to a "64 & 1/2" when it's brought to Lester's "Sky Ranch".
