Goofs While Tom is speaking with Eddie at school (at around 6 mins), Eddie is standing on the stairs above Tom and the camera is behind Eddie pointing down toward Tom when a boy with short brown hair wearing a green and white vertically striped shirt and a dark blue jacket and holding a light blue book walks down the steps past Eddie, turns and stares at Tom, turns and looks up the stairs while rubbing his nose, then looks back at Tom when the camera cuts to a shot looking up at Eddie from behind Tom as the same boy walks down the stairs past Eddie.
