Goofs

Rob tells Buddy and Sally the night after the argument that he spent the night in the garage because he left his keys in the house and didn't want to go back in to get them and face Laura. However, we see that he left with all of the things he had when he came home--he did not leave his keys in the house. See more »

Quotes
