Did You Know?
When Daniel is making phone calls to locate his friend, the phone number that he leaves on the answering machine is 555-2368. That phone number is the same as the one used in Ghostbusters
(1984) in their TV commercials. This phone number was also the phone number used in When a Stranger Calls
(1979); Carol Kane's character Jill Johnson gives Police Sargent Saggert a phone number of where she is babysitting. The above number: 555-2368, was the number she gave to the Sargent when she was speaking to him on the phone. See more

Well, that thought crossed my mind.
Oh, it crossed MY mind, too, I can tell you.
