After Dale witnesses the murder and goes to Saul's apartment building in a panic, the sound of the rapid buzzing as he pushes the call button doesn't match the buzzing heard in Saul's apartment.

The foot-hole in the windshield suddenly, inexplicably, changes sizes from small and jagged, to larger and more rounded.

Q
How could Red survive after everything that happened to him?
A
Most viewers simply chalk it up to "suspension of disbelief". Some critics have likened Red's pseudo-immortality to Wile E. Coyote's, i.e. the ridiculous amount of punishment he is able to take is part of the joke. Others have seen it as a reference to Knocked Up (2007) in which the character Ben Stone (Seth Rogen), praises the cure-all purposes of marijuana. "It is, like, the best medicine. 'Cause it fixes everything. Jonah broke his elbow once. We just... got high and... it still clicks but, I mean, he's ok."
Q
Is "Pineapple Express" based on a book?
A
No. Pineapple Express is based on a screenplay by Seth Rogen (who also stars in the film), Evan Goldberg, and Judd Apatow (who also produced the film). According to Apatow, the source of inspiration for Pineapple Express was Brad Pitt's character [a stoner named Floyd] in True Romance (1993).
