Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Ferris wheel. So much of this movie revolves around the ferris wheel experience. I guess you could call it the movie's motif.
Charly's dad called him. This part in the book is one of the most entertaining. Charly sets up a competition between Mark and Sam to see who would be the best husband. This competition included events such as budget-shopping and baby-sitting someone's kid. Mark does really well, but sabotages Sam's every move.
Took her to the circus. This discussion occurs when Charly is trying to decide what to do with the feelings she is having with the LDS church. Apparently, Charly has a long list of things she has shown interest in and then abandoned. In the book, this interest was playing the harp, not running away with the circus.
Grandmother's. The character of the grandmother does not exist in the book. In the movie, she seems to be Charly's soundboard and guardian angel. I guess Jack Weyland thought that Charly could figure things out on her own in the book.
Nothing. In the movie, Sam just sits there and takes it. In the book, Sam rows to the shallows while Charly is trying to convince him to lighten up. She notices an evil smile on Sam's face and asks what he is doing. He gets to the shallows and throws Charly into the water.
Marshmallows. Charly, during a fishing expedition with Sam, gets bored and poses as a representative of the Utah Fish and Game Department. She tells the other fisherman that because they are using marshmallows as bait the game department has to send trout through dental school.
A computer. Mark sent a computer with a webcam so that he could attempt to woo Charly into marriage. Mark shows her some wedding invitations that he has been working on and she notices that they have Mark and Charly's names on them. This strays from the book because at the time the book was written, webcams were only a figment of some inventor's imagination!
Mark. Mark is Charly's live-in boyfriend from New York City. Charly's father hates Mark and hopes that while she is visiting Utah, she will lose interest in him.
Sam's garden. After the discussion, Sam asked Charly what she had thought of it. She said she didn't believe it and didn't understand how he could. Sam challenges her to say a prayer asking God whether the missionaries were telling the truth. They knelt down in the garden in his backyard and Sam said the prayer. In the book, Charly ends up walking away in the middle of the prayer.
Missionary discussion. Charly had expressed interest in learning more about the LDS church, so Sam scheduled a time to meet with the missionaries. After the discussion, Sam was more than ready for the next step. Charly was not impressed.
Waded through the reflection pool. The pool referred to in the movie is a pool where you can stand at the edge, look down into the water, and see the full reflection of the temple.

Humidity. In the book, there is a great scene that the movie left out. Charly offers Sam a huge handful of sunflower seeds and walks out of the room. While Sam is talking with Charly's parents, he is snacking on the seeds and realizes that there is nowhere to dispose of the shells. Charly returns and asks if Sam is ready to go, everyone looks to see what he will do with the seeds, and Sam throws them all into his mouth and chews them up and swallows.
Mr. Rafferty. Charly sees the ferris wheel from the road and forces Sam to take her. Sam tries to only buy a few tickets, but Charly takes all 70$ and slides it to the ticket seller, who promptly hands over the tickets and shows Sam a sign that says "No refunds".
70$ and the Mustang. Sam vows that he will spend only 20$ on the actual date, meaning he will make a profit of 50$ just for putting up with this girl from New York City.
Ferris wheel tickets. The tickets are attached to a note that simply says, "I'll save you a place in line." The movie ends with Sam taking Adam on the ferris wheel, keeping the motif alive.
Lazarus. After Charly dies, Sam recalls that Christ did not belittle the feelings of Lazarus's family after he died. Christ wept with them so he could empathize with them. Sam knew that Christ would do this for him.
His faith. Sam is denying that Charly is about to die, so she tries to reach him by telling him what made her fall in love with him.
Adam. Adam is only 10 months old when Charly is diagnoses with cancer. She spends much of her remaining time trying to get her son to say "Mama", hoping that he will remember her when she is gone.
|What disease does Charly say Sam has while they are standing in the check out line at the grocery store?||It's All About "Charly" 2
Swine fever. Charly and Sam play a game every once in awhile where they role-play. The first person to laugh has to change diapers for a week. Charly sees a woman pouring over a soap opera magazine and knows that the woman would enjoy a juicy story, so she goads Sam into the game.
Make love. All of the women are naming innocent things like walks and gardening, and Charly, ever the outspoken one, raises her hands and proclaims that she and Sam like to make love to stay close. In the next scene, you see people walking past Sam in church, giving him the thumbs up.
Ferris wheel tickets. He leaves a Ferris wheel model, an airplane ticket, and a bunch of Ferris wheel tickets. He did this after a judge in New York City told him he could never come back to the city and next time he is fighting with his girlfriend, just send some flowers.
An art class. In the book, Sam interrupts a marriage/family class. Charly is taking a test and Sam poses as a student in the class. The test has a lot of questions that Sam is appalled at. He causes a scene and is dragged out of the class.
Temple Square. In the book, Sam drives up to the mountains to think about the situation with Charly. He realizes that she has been baptized and that means that God has forgotten her sins. Sam knows that he has to do that too. But his realization is too late. Charly had returned to New York City because Sam broke her heart.
Used merchandise. In the book, this conversation occurs just after they had met with the man who would marry them. Charly confesses that before she was baptized, that she had had sex. Sam has a fit and says that he doesn't want to marry her. He goes back to his bishop to talk about Charly's indiscretions and the bishop tells Sam that HE is the one with the problem.
