· Oliver and Jenny are eating outside on the bleachers. The left side view of Oliver, when he says “you’re going to have to fend for yourself this weekend”, shows him resting both arms on the railing behind him. It cuts to a close-up front view of him and his left arm is on his lap.
· In the second hockey game, against Cornell, Oliver’s dad is in the crowd. Oliver gets penalized and is sent to the penalty box for five minutes for fighting. His face is bleeding but there is no blood on his shirt. It cuts to a view of his dad and then back to Oliver and there are now splotches of blood on his left shoulder.
· Jenny and Oliver receive the invitation to the dinner for his dad’s birthday. When Jenny is first reading the invitation out loud, the view of the two of them shows her holding the invitation down near her lap. It cuts to a right side view and she’s holding the invitation in her right hand up in front of her face. Also when it cuts to the right side view, Oliver is holding a pencil in his left hand now that he wasn’t before.
· When Jenny asks Oliver what the number is to his parents’ home so she can RSVP to the dinner/birthday invitation. Oliver answers “338-3434, dial a 1 first…”. They have a rotary phone and when she’s dialing, she dials the same number over and over.
