Other mistake: At the beginning, the police say, "Mona Deary is dead." But how do they know that? The car isn't hers, it's her son's, and it's in the water. It's only when the car has been dragged out of the water that they can see the true picture.
Phil saw Bobby crawl out from under Jeff's car, then cut the brake lines himself and switched the key chains. Later, Phil gets drunk when he finds out his son Jeff is also sleeping with Rona and in his stupor falls in the lake. Clarence (the man who witnessed Mona's accident and seems to be the eyes and ears of the town) drowns Phil so that Bobby won't be implicated in Mona's murder. He feels that Bobby is a good kid and wants to protect him. In the end Bobby and Ellen get married, Rona and Jeff end up together, and Clarence is taken to jail...although he's allowed to attend the wedding first.
Mona: Why'de you pull us over Feege?
Feege: Oh let me think about that Mona, you're riding on rims and you pulled an 1107 on an officer of the law. What the hell is the matter with you son? (to Jeph).
Mona: What did you hurt him for?
Feege: He's drunk.
Mona: No he aint! Its OK baby. (to Jeph.) You're gonna pay for this Feege! You just lost your lawn service pal.
Question: It's never explained why Bobby would ever even consider going into business with Jeff? It's not as if Jeff is some great business mind. The entire Dearly family has no respect for him and treat him like a buffoon. There's absolutely no reason given for why Bobby would ever set foot on their property, much less inside their house.
