Dickie gets the part, and the Mom tells him to go follow his dream. He's on a plane explaining the plot of to two airhostesses when he realises that heaven is with the Finney's. So Dickie rushes back, and surprises them on Christmas morning. He creates his own show, about his life with Leif Garret as the Dickie character, all his old poker buddy's get guest spots. Grace is set designer, Sam is the joke writer and Sally is the dancing instructor. Dickie and Grace get married, and live happily ever after.

Continuity mistake: Dickie is finally convinced to take off his gloves for good later in the movie. But not long before this scene when Dickie is making fun of the bullies at school, he has no gloves on the entire time.

More trivia for Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

Question: When Dickie runs into Leif Garrett at the newsstand, why do they first act like they haven't seen each other in months, and then Leif asks if they're still on for poker on Tuesday? How would they have a poker night set up if they haven't seen each other?

Answer: Maybe Leif called Dickie, or vice-versa, without actually SEEING each other. Maybe it's not a weekly thing, maybe Leif is new to their poker group.
