** This is actually hinted at twice, during the final scenes of the movie at Harry's Bar. First, when Bateman walks in and sits down with the others, McDermott gestures over to Bryce and mentions that he "just got back, and he's drinking mineral water. He's a changed man." This indicates that Bryce has just returned from a not-insignificant trip. Where to? Well, just after Ronald Reagan's speech later on, if you pay close attention, Bryce speaks several of his lines in a bad British accent, as a pretentious person like him might do after spending a few days in England. It seems likely that Carnes had dinner in London with Bryce, whom he thinks is called Paul Allen. [[note]]This sits well with WordOfGod which states that the movie was made under the assumption that the murders did take place.[[/note]]

* At the end of the film, Bateman's lawyer insists Bateman couldn't have murdered Paul Allen, as the lawyer had dinner with Allen only a few days ago. While this might seem to support the notion that the murders were all in his head, it's shaky evidence at best; Batemans lawyer confuses Bateman for another one of his clients, so who's to say he really had dinner with Allen, instead of another yuppie he thought to be Allen?

** Also note that Bateman's card has a typo, spelling the company's name as "Pierce &Pierce", while everyone else's cards have it as "Pierce & Pierce", a very obvious mistake that nobody else seems to notice. Possibly because nobody at the table noticed that they had ''all'' misspelled "Acquisitions" as "Aquisitions".

* In addition, the lettering is "Cillian Rail", a typeset that doesn't exist. Cillian is an Irish name and one of the meanings is strife, which is bitter disagreement and conflict. Rail can also be used as a verb to mean complaining, accusing or insulting. The business card scene, in Patrick's eyes at least, is a ''very'' serious conflict that actually leads to him killing another character over it.
