* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The [[http://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/Next-GaryGoldman.pdf original script]] was a ''lot'' more interesting that what was ultimately filmed, and even lacked a particularly obnoxious PlotHole; in the film, the authorities let Liz go despite her not only refusing to drug Cris, but ''sending one of their cars off a cliff'', leaving her to be captured by the Western Terrorists. In the script, her arrest is a major plot point.
