* Hallucinations: Ray sees visions of his dead brother, which is pretty interesting what with being blind and all.

* {{Determinator}}: Ray's mom forces him to never be a cripple and to never let anyone take advantage of him.


** DanBrowned: That scene was purely a fabrication. In real life, Ray did refuse to play, but he only ended up having to pay the promoter compensation.


* TheCastShowoff: When it was being explained to Jamie Foxx how they would make it look like he was playing the piano, he stopped the explanation by stating that he ''knew'' how to play so such tricks wouldn't be necessary. In every scene with him at the keys, it's genuine.
