Did You Know?


Sandra Bullock states that she felt compelled to name the dog "Jack" after the character of Keanu Reeves in
Speed – the first movie the two of them made together.


Audio/visual unsynchronized:
When Kate is writing to Alex asking him to call her July 10, 2006 at 9:05 p.m., she mouths "July 10, 2004", but we hear 2006.


Girl Patient:
My mom's last boyfriend was bald. He was nice, but she didn't marry him.


Girl Patient:
There's always something better coming around the corner. That's what she says…

If she's not careful, she can spend her whole life waiting.
