Did You Know?
The eccentric house that Calvin's mother Gertrude in which lives is supposed to be in Big Sur, but it is actually a house in the Hollywood Hills that once belonged to Sid Krofft
. Much of the dialogue in that scene describing material details about the house was written on the spot based on the actual owner's tour of the place on the day of the shoot. See more

Ruby Sparks. Twenty-six years old. Raised in Dayton, Ohio.
Sounds romantic. Ruby's first crushes were Humphrey Bogart and John Lennon. She cried the day she found out they were already dead. Ruby got kicked out of high school for sleeping with her art teacher... or maybe her Spanish teacher. I haven't decided yet. Ruby can't drive. She doesn't own a computer. She hates her middle name, which is Tiffany. She always, always roots for the underdog. She's complicated. That's what I like...
