Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Reportedly, Haley Joel Osment got the role of Cole Sear for one of three reasons. First, he was best for it. Second, he was the only boy at auditions who wore a tie. Third, director M. Night Shyamalan was surprised when he asked Haley Joel Osment if he read his part. Osment replied, "I read it three times last night." Shyamalan was impressed, saying, "Wow, you read your part three times?" To which Osment replied, "No, I read the script three times." See more »
Goofs Cole is aware of his teacher's stuttering issue during grade school through high school (Stuttering Stanley), but the behavior has nothing to do with anyone being dead, so it doesn't make sense that Cole knows this. The burn victim woman Cole talks to at the end (when Stanley walks in on him in the dressing room) was presumably a teacher at the school. In the very next scene Stanley says, "You know, when I was a student here there was a big fire." Obviously the burn victim woman (or a different fire victim we don't see) told Cole about Stanley's stuttering problem. See more »

Quotes Cole Sear: I see dead people.
Malcolm Crowe: In your dreams?
[Cole shakes his head no]
Malcolm Crowe: While you're awake?
[Cole nods]
Malcolm Crowe: Dead people like, in graves? In coffins?
Cole Sear: Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead.
Malcolm Crowe: How often do you see them?
Cole Sear: All the time. They're everywhere.
