Trivia: Say Anything
  • Fake American: John Mahoney. Who knew?
    Mr. Court: "I'M INCARCERATED LLOYD!"
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Phillip Baker Hall of Paul Thomas Anderson fame is the investigating agent who tells Diane the truth.
    • Jeremy Piven is among the "Gas n' Sip" guys. If a movie stars John Cusack 9 times out of 10 it will usually have Jeremy Piven, sometimes even in a supporting role.
    • Heather Chandler and Heather McNamara are at the party, thrown by Eric Stoltz, and Russ Brennan is Joe.
    • Chynna Phillips (of Wilson Phillips fame) is Mimi, Joe's current girlfriend.
    • Lilith is the school guidance counselor.
  • Real-Life Relative: John Cusack's sister Joan plays...his sister.
  • Society Marches On: Lloyd calls kickboxing the "sport of the future." Kickboxing never quite caught on in America as a sport in itself, but it does play a big role in Mixed Martial Arts.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Had Ione Skye turned down the role of Diane, Jennifer Connelly would have played her. In fact, Connelly turned down the lead in Heathers to audition.
    • Before choosing "In Your Eyes", the director commissioned The Smithereens to write a song for the film. The result was their song "A Girl Like You". It ended up being rejected for revealing the entire plot.
