Did You Know?

Goofs

Clarissa asks Sam to read aloud a classified ad for a car she fantasizes about buying. As he reads, the ad itself appears on the screen. He reads: "USED 1976 APPLE RED GREMLIN". The headline seen on the screen, however, says only "USED APPLE RED GREMLIN". In fact, the date "1976" doesn't appear anywhere in the onscreen ad. See more »
