At the climax of the film, a group of endangered smokejumpers is supposedly making their way to a river and safety. However, they are clearly moving uphill. You move uphill to get to a ridge (a fairly safe place to be in a wildfire); you move downhill to get to a river. See more »
[after Pete's plane explodes, he finds himself getting a haircut in the woods]
Hap, I don't want you to think that I'm doubting your good faith, I just want to get one thing clear, okay?
Am I dead?
Keep the sideburns. Boy, what a jerk I turned out to be. Dead! And now I'm sitting in the woods, getting my hair cut.

After seeing a movie with Marg Helgenberger made in the 90's "Death Dreams" with Christopher Reeve, I felt the need to look for other Marg Helgenberger performances besides her famous turn in CSI - To my surprise, not many, except "Death Dreams" where she gives a performance that goes straight to something truly personal. She is amazing, amazing! That's how I got to Always. The only Spielberg film I hadn't seen. The film is a sort of remake of "A Guy Named Joe" charming with a lovely central performance by Holly Hunter but where is Marg? She's way back in the background. Beautiful and real but way too far away in the background. The most memorable memorable moment, at least for a film buff - is the last film appearance by Audrey Hepburn, as an angel.
