Corrected entry: In the scene where Silent Bob gives his Amy speech, Jay has two bus tickets to Indiana in his coat pocket. This is a set up for their joining Bethany in Dogma.

Correction: The tickets to Indiana most likely have nothing to do with Dogma. Not only was Dogma a film unrelated to the New Jersey trilogy (Clerks, Mallrats, and Chasing Amy), Bethany did not live in Indiana, she lived in Illinois.

Corrected entry: When Holden finds out that Alyssa is a lesbian, he freaks out. But shouldn't he already know that since the first time he saw her she was on a minority panel at a comic con for being a lesbian?

Correction: It is never said that she is on the panel for being a lesbian, it is possible she was on the panel for being a woman in a mostly male world. That is what Holden assumed anyway.

Corrected entry: When Silent Bob starts to tell his Amy story Jay tells Bob he never knew of any chick, but when they are leaving Jay yells at Bob saying "why do you always tell that stupid story?" (01:29:00 - 01:32:50)

Correction: According to Kevin Smith (The Director) this was intentional.

Corrected entry: Ben Affleck is talking in the diner. He is smoking - the cigarette ashes appear then disappear, then appear again.

Correction: There are no examples of this wherein he didn't have time to knock them off/take a new drag between shots of him.

Continuity mistake: When Silent Bob is telling the Amy story in the diner, his cigarette mysteriously grows from barely above the filter to about half length, then it disappears from his hand entirely, and he draws a new one. (01:30:40)

Question: I've noticed that throughout the movie, the first two fingers on many character's right hand are orange. Most noticeable when Holden sees Banky at the end and in the lesbian bar when Banky is swapping stories with Alyssa. What's the significance of this?

Answer: I'm gonna be totally honest... I'm 99% sure there's no significance. In fact, I think it's just stained skin from all the smoking people do in the movie. Most people hold their cigarettes between their first two fingers. And most of the characters are depicted smoking throughout the film, which means they had to smoke a LOT during filming to maintain continuity. I used to get occasional orange (and sometimes yellow or light brown) stains on my fingers and hands when I smoked cigarettes. Especially if I smoked more than one in a short period of time and didn't wash me hands between them. So it's probably just smoking stains on the actor's fingers. In fact, I looked, and you see Banky holding a lit cigarette in his right hand and smoking during the story swapping scene you mentioned, with gives some direct evidence to my theory. (For reference, those stains can wash off with some good scrubbing).
