Plot hole: When Jason is in Ginny's cabin, she's under the bed seeing where he's at. So how did Jason manage to get up on a chair and wait for her to come out without her seeing him do this? She had to see him do that, but when she pokes her head out, she's surprised to see him there.

Suggested correction: She was a bit preoccupied with the rat that got up close and personal to her. She heard the creaking, but when she looked back, she didn't see him, assuming that the sound was made by him exiting through the cabin's door. The creaking was actually him getting up on that chair, but she wasn't looking at the door because the rat was in her face.

Plot hole: Jason drags Vicky's body down the stairs. A minute later, Ginny and Paul come in the house and see nothing. Jason even has time to hide Sandra and Jeff's bodies by the time Ginny and Paul go upstairs. Not possible in a two minute time frame.

Suggested correction: We're not given a specified length of time between Vicki's murder and the time Paul and Ginny returned. He could have had enough time to hide Jeff and Sandra, but then they arrived as he was dragging Vicki down the stairs (you could hear them outside as we see this). We didn't see every closet or room, so the bodies could have been hidden anywhere.

Revealing mistake: When Jason is on top of Ginny's car, she reacts to the pitchfork through the roof a second too early. (01:10:50)

Suggested correction: She had just seen Jason through the window before he disappeared. Then the pitchfork comes the roof. Just before she screams, you can hear the pitchfork tearing through the fabric of the roof. That's what's she's reacting to.

Also, when you see the car and Jason is reaching in through the hole in the roof from the passenger side, it's pretty obvious she would have seen him before he stuck the pitchfork through. That could be another reason she react before we see the pitchfork.

Other mistake: Vicki enters the darkened cabin and flips a switch on a nearby lamp, to discover the power is out. But as she grumbles and crosses to another table lamp that is unplugged, she plugs it in, and suddenly the whole cabin lights up.

Suggested correction: The power wasn't out, the bulb in the lamp burnt out. We see this happen when Terry enters the cabin earlier looking for a knife. She flipped the switch, then there was a flash of light before going dark.

Other mistake: Right at the part where Crazy Ralph is looking in on Paul and Ginny. Ralph hears a breaking of a stick behind him. You can see Jason put the barbed wire up and over the tree. How is that possible? He would have to whip it around the tree, not over it. (00:30:20)

Paul: Ginny, put your car on the lot, okay? This place is starting to look like a Burger King. Um, where was I?
Ted: You were about to give your "Let's keep our shit together" speech.

More quotes from Friday the 13th Part 2

Trivia: The movie ends with a shot of Mrs. Voorhees old wrinkled head on Jason's shrine. Originally her head was supposed to open its eyes, and smile. Steve Miner comments on commentary how he decided to get rid of the idea, as he felt it would make the movie come across as more cheap and hokey than normal.
