  • The real Alice and Ray Brock appear as extras in the film. How to spot the real Alice: in the scene where "Ray" is putting up insulation she is wearing a brown turtleneck and her hair in a pony tail. In the Thanksgiving scene she wears a bright pink satin blouse. In the party scene she is wearing a Western-style dress.
