  • Mrs. Thomas: You just let your imagination run away with you.
  • Mrs. Thomas: You can take all the baths you want.
  • Mary Henry: It's funny... the world is so different in the daylight. In the dark, your fantasies get so out of hand. But in the daylight everything falls back into place again.

Movie Trivia:
  • The backdrop is the Saltair Amusement Park outside Salt Lake City.
  • The Saltair that appears in the film actually burned down in the early '70s. In the early '80s another version of Saltair was rebuilt, although it was a much smaller design. Shortly after it was built, the Great Salt Lake rose and flooded it out. In 1993, the building was remodeled and reopened, now it's mainly used as a small venue for musical acts.
  • Director Herk Harvey and writer John Clifford both waived their earnings in order to get the film made under the initially miniscule $17,000 budget.
  • Filmed in three weeks.
  • The damage to the bridge in the opening scene of the film cost Herk Harvey $17.
