- Awesome Music:
- Harry James' "You Made Me Love You" appears both during the opening credits and when Holly and Mickey have lunch. Meanwhile, James' "I've Heard That Song Before" plays during the opening scene and reappears during a few scenes between Lee and Elliot.
- Mickey and Holly's awful date includes some awesome music. Bobby Short performs "I'm In Love Again" and, though they might look like they're about to take hostages, 39 Steps' "Slip Into the Crowd" is a pretty decent punk rock song.
- Harsher in Hindsight: During the last Thanksgiving scene, Soon-Yi Previn can briefly be seen. Yikes.
- One-Scene Wonder: Mickey's parents milk every second out of the scene they have in the film.
Mickey's Dad: How the hell do I know why there were Nazis? I don't know how the can opener works!
- Daniel Stern as Dusty, a vapid rock star who wants to buy some of Frederick's paintings.
- Frederick himself is a two scene wonder.
- Tearjerker: The breakup between Lee and Frederick is so powerful the crew were in tears during filmer.
