Trivia When Hector visits the Himalayas, the flags are Tibetan prayer flags, whose colors represent the five elements. Health and harmony can be produced with the balance of all the elements. It is the belief that the wind will carry the prayers and mantras to provide good will and compassion to the surrounding areas. See more »
Goofs Hector uses computers and more specifically Skype several times to videochat with his girlfriend, yet none of the computers he uses seem to be equipped with the necessary camera or microphone that enables his girlfriend to see and hear him. See more »
