Meet the Fockers

Trivia: Near the start of the movie, when Greg & Pam are on the plane, the stewardess who asks Greg if he wants help with his case, is the same one that he shouted at near the end of the first movie.

Trivia: In the scene where the three men are in jail towards the end of the movie, the jailer that comes to let them out (but is stopped by Ben Stiller) actually plays a cop in the Comedy Central show "Reno 9-1-1". In fact, he may even be wearing the exact uniform he wears in the series. Also, the sheriff deputy who comes off the motorhome yelling "Look, he has rubber boobie!" is also a cop on Reno 9-1-1.

Trivia: The house used as the Focker's home (outside shots only) is the same home used in the TV show "Fantasy Island". The Queen Anne Cottage is located at the Los Angeles Arboretum, even though the movie is set in Florida. The outside of the house was re-dressed and so looks a little different.

Trivia: The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) wouldn't let them use 'Focker' in the title unless they found a family with the name 'Focker'. They did, and all the Fockers they found had a reunion in Florida.

Trivia: Pam's sister, Deborah, could not appear in this movie because the actress that played her was ill with pneumonia shortly before filming this movie. She then died in 2005, 1 year after "Meet The Fockers" had been filmed.

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Greg are in the motor home near the beginning of the movie, Jack is talking on the intercom mic to his family in the back, then puts it down when he is finished. But, in the following shot that shows Greg talking, you can see Jack's reflection on the window, showing him still talking into the mic. (00:13:30)

Greg Focker: Or Byrnes-Focker, we haven't totally decided yet.

More quotes from Meet the Fockers

Question: Does Sodium Pentothal really erase memories of events that happened during and after you take it?

Jason Riley

Chosen answer: It doesn't exactly erase your memories, rather it causes a form of apnea and drowsiness, causing you to be semi-concious or not fully awake, similar to blacking out. This causes you to not remember events that took place during your dosage and during the course of time it is in your bloodstream. Since it puts you in a physical and mental state where the easiest things to do are all you can manage the mental strength to do, it is used as a truth serum, since lying is much more complicated than telling the truth. Because of these properties the drug possesses, higher doses can also be used for Euthanasia, Medical Induced Comas, and even Lethal Injections.
