Complaining about his problems with the lighthouse, Willie Gerkin says "This is SO not the way "The Secret" is supposed to work!" 'The Secret' is a self-help book by Rhonda Byrne
that concentrates in part on the way positive thinking is supposedly meant to bring wealth into one's life, just like the windfall in Gerkin's life that the lighthouse represents. See more
When Annablle Vandersloop is leaving, she puts her hand accidentally on Emerson's chest. The palm of her hand lands flat on his plastic raincoat. In the next shot there's a close-up, and you can see that now the hand is positioned half on the raincoat, half on Emerson's lapel, leaving a white stain. In this close-up, the stain is positioned so that the fingers start above Emerson's pocket, and just the index finger and thumb on his lapel, but after Annabelle leaves, the stain is now positioned lower, with the tips of the fingers barely reaching the bottom of his pocket, and no stain on the lapel. When we see Emerson behind the desk, the stain is now showing not a half, but a fully impressed hand, with the whole thumb, index and middle finger on the lapel, and positioned higher, back again to above his pocket.

With her husband lost at sea, Nora couldn't afford the lighthouse upkeep. I used my family influence to declare it a protected historic monument. I appointed Nora the lighthouse steward and the McQuoddys its guardian until the family line dies out, or the sun swallows the earth in a solar flare, killing us all.
