* So, do houses have to possess certain qualities to qualify as a house? Because it seems like Jerry's plan is for the house to burn ''all'' the way down, into a pile of rubble...and of course, it doesn't, and was likely never going to. So hypothetically, Charley and co. could simply go back inside once the damage had been done and the sun had come up.

* Even assuming all that stuff Ed said about people moving in and out of Vegas constantly is true, it doesn't line up with Jerry's methods--we see him kill kids but not parents, and parents but not kids. Regardless of how often people relocate, that's gonna raise some eyebrows--instances of parents moving away without their kids can't be common, and missing minors are gonna be reported to the cops. Hardly inconspicuous.

*** Still, would've been nice of her to tell him this earlier, as the only reason he ''stopped'' hanging out with Ed was because he thought that if he did, Amy would dump him.

** I figured she meant that as, despite him being a dweeb, she waited for him to gather up the courage to ask her out, regardless of their social statuses. Charley just chose to hang with the popular kids and leave Ed and Adam after he started dating Amy.

* Charley's relationship with Amy was a big headscratcher for me. Was I the only one who thought the movie was setting her up as a shallow figure and Charley was actually going to end up with Doris the go-go dancer? That's not the important issue though. Late in the movie, she says "I always knew you were a dweeb". So ... why did she not date Charley when he was ''outwardly'' a dweeb? She waited for him to ditch his friends and hang out with the popular kids, which is a complete {{Jerkass}} thing to do.

** Breaking windows? While outside? In broad daylight where the whole street can see what's going on?

* He broke the windows to let the sunlight inside the house from the inside... wouldn't it have made more sense to break them ''before entering the house'', or at least go back outside to do so?
