There's a closeup of an Elvis Presley album which has a 1970's RCA logo on it. The logo is the same one the company currently uses, not that older "electric" lettering they had in the '50's amd '60's.

When in the movie Doug writes on the window "I love you", he writes with the finger on the glass that is covered with steam, and it looks nice, but in fact when it's cold and the windows are covered with steam, the steam is always INSIDE the room, not outside.

Narrator: My brother was more successful at reinventing himself than I was. Jacey's parties at the University of Pennsylvannia were the hippest ones around. And even though he had a major in architecture, he seriously minored in beautiful co-eds.
