* In the Director's cut, the song Love Will Tear Us Apart by JoyDivision is heard playing diegetically during the party scene. The version of the song used is the re-release from 1995, despite the fact the film was set in 1988. This seems like it could be a mistake, as a record released in 1995 couldn't be played at a party in 1988. Until you remember that the entire film focuses around the concept of time travel.

***He said that it was "futuristic". He's not necessarily referring to the one that actually takes place in the future.

** To make it even more Fridge Horror, when he first meets Grandma Death, she says [["Every living creature on this earth dies alone." When Donnie was shown before he died, it was implied that the events played out the way they did in the beginning of the movie. The only exception, being that he was aware of the ultimate timeline. He called his mom a bitch so she could leave him alone to die.]]

* There is a certain deleted scene on the [=DVDs=] of ''Donnie Darko'' that is purest Fridge Brilliance, explaining ''why'' everything in the film happens in one of the most beautiful lines ever spoken by a man dressed in a NightmareFuel rabbit suit.
** Which line?
*** [[GoMadFromTheRevelation The line doesn't exist because the film cannot be explained.]]
