Did You Know?
In the first scene at the laundromat, we hear the sound of a front load washer ending its spin cycle. None of the shots show any front-load machines. A top-load machine would make a very different sound at the end of its spin cycle. The only time a top-loader would make the same sound is if its lid was opened.
Additionally, we see signs that say "use our giant washer." None of the shots show a large washer extractor. See more
Oh my God, Angela. Well I don't wanna seem too eager. One Mississippi, two Mississippi, that seems good.
