Did You Know?

Trivia

When Harry and Lloyd are in the car, Lloyd asks if Harry wants to hear the most annoying sound in the world. This was not originally in the script (you can tell by the look on Jeff Daniels' face). See more »

Goofs

On the note left for the "gas man" they misspell Aspen as "Aspin". This was most likely intentional since their lack of intelligence is a major part of the movie. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lloyd Christmas: Excuse me. Could you tell me how to get to the medical school? I'm supposed to be giving a lecture in 20 minutes, and my driver's a bit lost.
