Headscratchers: The Hudsucker Proxy

  • When the guy who makes the crossword puzzles asks, "What's a six-letter word for a condition of the hypothalamus?" and Amy replies, "Goiter." Not only is a goiter a thyroid condition, but why does the editor need to know the word? If it's for the puzzle, shouldn't he be placing the words first and asking for the definition?
  • Shouldn't the guy have been fired for delivering the blue letter an entire year later than he should have?
    • 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.
