Continuity mistake: When Will burns the paper, a large part of it is burned (almost the right half). But when the professor grabs the paper from him, a much smaller portion is burned (just the bottom right-hand corner). (01:29:45)
While working as a janitor at scholarly and prestigious MIT, Will decides to stop and work a math problem written on a blackboard that had been left for the graduate students to solve. Later, Professor Lambeau is astounded to discover that it was the young janitor who had accomplished what no student could do. Convinced that Will is a genius, Lambeau enlists the aid of an old college roommate and therapist Sean McGuire, to help Will cope with his feelings of abandonment and intellectual uneasiness.
Will: You know, I was on this plane once. And I'm sittin' there and the captain comes on and he does his whole, "We'll be cruising at 35,000 feet, " then he puts the mic down but he forgets to turn it off. Then he turns to the copilot and goes, "You know, all I could go for right now is a fuckin' blow job and a cup of coffee." So the stewardess fuckin' goes bombin' up from the back of the plane to tell him the mic's still on, and this guy behind me goes, "Hey hun, don't forget the coffee!"
