Did You Know?


Pete and Murdoc swap "rides" in two amusing "old vs. new" ways - where Murdoc was originally riding as a passenger in a "vintage" Chevrolet cab, he then steals and drives Pete's modern Chevrolet sedan, whereas Pete had originally been driving his own modern Chevrolet sedan, but then he rides as a passenger in the old Chevrolet cab after Murdoc swipes Pete's new-looking Chevrolet sedan.

When Murdoc is shown removing the dynamite from his satchel, it is not wired up yet; he connects all the wires up later. Yet in one of the close-up shots of him attaching the individual dynamite bundles to the truck's undercarriage, the bundle clearly has the white/red twisted-pair blasting-wires already attached.
