Character error 

When Garret and Box are discussing why Box grew his mustache, there are several references to the 1970s, including "Burt and his Camaro", which is an obvious allusion to Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit. However, the car Burt drove in all of the Smokey and the Bandit movies was a Pontiac Trans Am, not a Chevrolet Camaro.

Factual errors 

In the scene where Garret leaves California after his visit, he states that he "got the middle seat" after getting his boarding pass from Southwest Airlines. Southwest boarding passes do not assign seats, but have boarding groups instead, so he could not know what seat he would be taking.
