Empire Records

Warren shoots up the store, leading Mark to the idea of free publicity and a party to save Empire Records from Mitch. Debra isn't sad anymore, Gina sings with Burko's band, Joe hooks up with Jane, Corey gets with AJ (who quits to go to art school in Boston), Warren gets a job and Lucas states that everything is "not entirely perfect."

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where everyone is dancing. It's towards the end but not at the very end. One of the employees of the record store takes his shirt off. Then the camera cuts back and you see the entire group of people dancing. If you look at him he has his shirt back on. Then a couple of shots later he has it back off again.

Warren Beaty: Who glued these quarters to the floor?
A.J.: I did.
Warren: Why the hell for, man?
A.J.: I don't feel that I need to explain my art to you, Warren.

Trivia: Just after Lucas tells Joe he's a 'superb manager', Joe drags him off to beat him up in his office. When he takes him into the back, you see a girl standing in the doorway. She is the same girl you see when Mark and AJ enter the store at the beginning. Her character was called Lily and she was cut out of the film. Her name is also still in the credits.

Question: When Mark is watching a video in which he views himself being swallowed by a random monstrosity, he says, "I love you Eddie." Now, I took it as a reference to the "Eddie" that was part of a famous Iron Maiden stage show back in the eighties. A friend of mine took it as him (Mark) being thankful for his friend, Eddie, giving him the drug inbibed brownies that he was eating. Which was it?

Answer: I'm pretty sure it was the Eddie that gave him the brownies, because the band we see that is onstage at the time is Gwar, if I am not mistaken. They were famous for having a monster onstage that would 'eat' fans.

T Poston

Yeah, cause Eddie gave him the pot brownies that made him hallucinate being in a Gwar show, so he's thanking him.
