* If it's 1958, why does everything still look like the Great Depression? It would make sense if this were a small town out in the middle of nowhere, but it's New York City - the nation's cultural capital. Surely a great deal must have changed.

* FridgeBrilliance: The mail room orienter's one minute orientation is exactly one minute!
-->'''Mail Room Orienter:''' You punch in at 8:30 every morning, except you punch in at 7:30 following a business holiday, unless it's a Monday, then you punch in at 8 o'clock. Punch in late and they dock you. Incoming articles get a voucher, outgoing articles provide a voucher. Move any article without a voucher and they dock you. Letter size a green voucher, oversize a yellow voucher, parcel size a maroon voucher. Wrong color voucher and they dock you! 6787049A/6. That is your employee number. It will not be repeated! Without your employee number you cannot get your paycheck. Inter-office mail is code 37, intra-office mail 37-3, outside mail is 3-37. Code it wrong and they dock you! This has been your orientation. Is there anything you do not understand, is there anything you understand only partially? If you have not been fully oriented, you must file a complaint with personnel. File a faulty complaint and they dock you!
** The film goes through an entire cycle of day, despite taking place over the course of a few months. It begins in the morning, and ends up at night (aside from the FramingDevice BookEnds.)

** Here's my WMG on the matter. Yes, he would be fired, but what was written in the blue letter still stands. He was still named president earlier, and as such, he gets all the shares of the company. In short, he was fired, and then re-hired.
