Good Will Hunting (1997)

Corrected entry: In the scene where the four guys are walking up to the Harvard bar for the first time, Morgan is asking Will how he was fired from his janitorial job, and then Chuckie offers Will a job working construction. Will in fact does not loose his job before this scene. This is because later, when Lambeau asks the men in the Buildings and Grounds office about Will, Will's boss says that he "didn't show up for work today," meaning that he still had his job. They would not be expecting Will had he been fired. If he was fired, the movie never attempts to explain why. (00:15:30)

Correction: The fact that Will told his friends he was fired doesn't mean it's true - he might have told them that to hide the fact that he left his job because of the incident with Lambeau.

Better Call Saul (2015)

Chicanery - S3-E5

Corrected entry: Jimmy mentions a teenager getting a discount at the Stop and Shop, but Stop and Shop is a grocery store chain that only exists in the Northeastern US. Jimmy has only ever lived in Illinois and New Mexico, so he is unlikely to know the chain exists, let alone use it in a passing example like this. Plus, this conversation is taking place with someone who also lives in Albuquerque, so his mentioning this makes no sense. (00:11:10)

Correction: While Stop and Shop is a Northeastern grocery chain, "Stop-N-Shop" (or other variations of the spelling) is a ubiquitous name for some stores, especially for convenience stores. There's one that closed down near me, and there's some in NM and IL. It should also be noted Jimmy says "five-finger discount", meaning stealing. So it's clear to Caldera what Jimmy is trying to say.

Very good point, thank you for adding that! Stop and Shop groceries might want to pick a more unique name, and be on the lookout for shoplifters.
