When Jenna and Earl argue in bed, the scene originally concluded in a sexual encounter that Keri Russell described as "kind of rapey." While filming the scene, Jeremy Sisto's sympathetic delivery of the line, "You're my sweet thing", caused Adrienne Shelly to reassess her original concept of the character. She changed the scene on-set to end with Earl quietly going to sleep.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Old Joe's check was apparently for $270,450, although the cursive total is partially covered by a thumb and the digits are off screen. (If you have zoom and freeze frame you can see the first part of the cursive writing when she first starts opening the check.) The amount was obscured on purpose through these methods and quick editing, according to the DVD commentary, in order to help avoid making the film seem dated in any way. The prop department, however, never did get the check quite right; Joe's address on the check is seen as "Box 12, Rural RT. 83, Southern USA."
