* SpecialEffectFailure: A minor one near the end. As Sgt. Cass leads his new recruits in Bill's Hamlet marching cadence, you can hear the recruits respond, but none of them are seen talking. Obviously dubbed in after.

Added DiffLines:

* RenaissanceMan: Leon Battista Alberti is discussed by Bill.
** Bill is likely one as well, with his success at both advertising and teaching. Note also that the building his old advertising firm is in is the "Renaissance Building", making him a ''literal'' renaissance man while he was there.
