Continuity mistake: During the second round of drinks, the amount of ice left in the frozen daiquiri changes depending on the camera angle. It's poofy and opaque in the side view, and deflated and almost fully transparent in the tighter close-up on Shirley MacLaine, with an intermediate angle and state. (00:38:10)
J.D. Sheldrake: Ya know, you see a girl a couple of times a week, just for laughs, and right away they think you're gonna divorce your wife. Now I ask you, is that fair?
C.C. Baxter: No, sir, it's very unfair... Especially to your wife.
Trivia: The Christmas party was really filmed just before Christmas, with almost all of it filmed in the first take as everyone was in the holiday spirit already. Director Billy Wilder said "I wish it were always this easy. Today, I can just shout 'action' and stand back."
