Goofs

Sam says to Valerie: "Maybe we could go up to the Cape for the weekend." The reference is obviously to Cape Cod and, "the Cape" is quite definitely south of Boston.

Quotes

Rebecca Howe: Sam, give me a break. The only reason you're interested in that girl is that you can't have her. It's the same thing with me.
Woody Boyd: You wanted her too, Miss Howe? Boy, I've been in this city one month too long.
