  • A young girl walks barefoot on glass, we see blood on her feet.

  • A man nearly falls out of a window after being attacked by the ghostly image of a 1950's-dressed woman.

  • We see two other presumably empty bottles in the background and he takes a drink from the one he is holding.
  • A man smokes a cigarette, a man offers another man a cigar (he declines), and a man has a cigarette behind his ear in many scenes and places it in an ashtray, unlit, in several scenes (we are told that he was a smoker and that he quit some time ago).
