Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
No. Nick and Norah finally find Where's Fluffy? because the band hears the address where they are playing on the radio. When they get there, they start fighting with everyone because Norah's ex-boyfriend Tal is there yelling at her and Tris is yelling at Nick. But they leave together right before Where's Fluffy? starts performing. Nick and Norah run off and kiss on the escalator together, knowing that this is just the start of their relationship.
Norah's dad's recording studio. Nick and Norah decide to go somewhere where "none of their friends can find them". They end up driving to a recording studio, where it is revealed that Norah's dad is famous and owns the studio. Nick and Norah start kissing, but then they get a text message from Caroline saying that they found Where's Fluffy? So they hurry off to go see them play.
At a bar. Nick and Norah meet up with the band and they all look for Caroline. Eventually, they find her in a gay bar dressed up as a Christmas tree on stage. They decide to take her home, and Nick runs into Tris at his Yugo. She does a striptease to try to get him back, but he ends up driving away from her. Then he goes to meet Norah at a restaurant.
Turkey. It is revealed earlier in the movie that Caroline passed out in the back of the band's van. When she wakes up, she forgets where she is and runs out. She goes to the train station but can't get on the train because she doesn't have enough money. When the clerk gets annoyed with her, he closes the curtain and she's stuck talking to a worker. She starts crying and says how she wishes she knew where Norah was because she wants a turkey sandwich. Then she sees that the worker has one and asks him for it.
He won't stop talking about Tris.. Norah and Nick drive home together after the other members of Nick's band promise to drive Caroline home safely. They aren't really talking about much until Nick puts on a CD and they listen to all the music together. But then they start fighting because Nick keeps talking about Tris. Norah gets out of the car and is hailing a cab when Nick's bandmates call him to tell him Caroline ran out of the car and is gone.
Caroline. Norah's best friend Caroline is, as usual, drunk. Every time Norah and Caroline go out to a club, Caroline always gets drunk and has to be taken home. Unfortunately, this time it's inconvenient because Norah wants to have someone to talk to at the club. She ends up bumping into Tris, who starts making fun of her for going to the club alone. Norah quickly lies and says that she actually came with someone.
Tris. Nick is performing on stage when all of a sudden he sees Tris in the audience with a new boyfriend named Ryan. He's so distraught that when he gets off the stage he pushes right past Norah, who's trying to be friendly and smiles at him. Tris doesn't seem to care that Nick noticed her and keeps on dancing with her new boyfriend.
Where's Fluffy?. Nick and his band hear on the radio that the band Where's Fluffy? is having a surprise concert. No one knows where it's going to be but everyone is excited. Nick decides to go and play with the band because he wants to find the Where's Fluffy? concert afterwards. Meanwhile, at Norah's school, Norah, Tris, and their friend Caroline are talking about how they're excited too. It's pretty obvious that Tris doesn't like music as much as Caroline and Norah do because she calls them Who's Fluffy? instead.
Leaving a message for his ex-girlfriend Tris. At the beginning of the movie, Nick is sitting on his bed, sad. He leaves a message for his ex-girlfriend Tris saying that he's sad they broke up. In the meantime he's burning a CD for her and looking at pictures of them together. Sadly, though, Tris doesn't care about Nick at all. When it shows her at school, she's throwing a CD from Nick in the trash and saying that he's pathetic.
|Besides a band name that lasts longer than one night, Nick, Dev, and Thom's band is still missing one vital element. What are they missing?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Drums . Norah makes a joke about this early in the film, as they choose to use a children's drum machine for their first gig, just to have some drum noise present. Of course this leads to Nick being embarrassed when he cannot figure out how to turn the machine off and he is left onstage, being booed by the audience until Thom kicks the cord to unplug it.
|At the end of the film Nick and Norah share a kiss and a conversation on the escalator going into a subway station. What real New York City subway station are they about to enter?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Pennsylvania Station. The funniest thing about this scene is that, like many films that take place in real time and in real places, the film wasn't able to shut down the entrance to the station during filming. In the outtakes on the DVD release, there is a clip of this scene where they are literally pushed out of the way and verbally chastised by a real New Yorker, irritated that they were taking up the entire escalator when he was obviously trying to use it.
|Caroline is deteremined to maintain the freshness and possession of a piece of gum throughout the majority of the film. This piece of gum was not hers to begin with. Whose was it?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Randy of 'Are You Randy?'. Norah and Caroline first meet Nick and his band after they play a show in New York City; this was their first stop in the city on their search for Where's Fluffy?. Even though Caroline promises Norah she will not get drunk and leave her, while at the bar, a heavily intoxicated Caroline is seen making out with Randy of Are You Randy?, and she is seen biting his gum while kissing him, stretching it between them, and then taking it altogether. This piece of gum goes on a wild ride throughout the evening, as she later gives it to Norah, who gives it to Nick, who eventually spits it out and hits Randy in the head at the Where's Fluffy? show.
|The gang eventually finds Caroline at an all-gay Christmas burlesque show, after Thom deciphers Caroline's clue that she is "with an altar boy that had no pants on". When they arrive at the show they don't see Caroline at first, but she eventually emerges onstage as a part of the show. What is her costume when she appears onstage?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Christmas tree. When Caroline sees that Nick is coming onstage to fetch her so that they can leave, she refers to him as "Yugo" and thinks he has come to rescue her. Throughout the whole film, Caroline never once refers to Nick by his actual name, but instead calls him Yugo or Super Cuts (because of his presumably cheap and overly 'heterosexual' haircut).
Yugo. The Yugo was first designed and popularized in the late 1970s, but was heavily criticized for its Fiat technology. Also, like the Pinto, it was discovered too late that the car's weight simply could not hold up to natural weather events; in one unfortunate example, a woman, in 1989, was driving in her 1987 Yugo across the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan when it was blown over a 36" protective guardrail by a 50 mph gust of wind. This tragedy was widely publicized and the Yugo was never able to recover from the damaging publicity.
|Norah's "friend with benefits", Tal, is trying to get her to give his heavily Jewish influenced band's new CD to her famous music mogul father. What is the name of Tal's band?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Oz-Rael. Norah is quite visibly flabbergasted by the album cover art and the title of the band itself, as Tal describes it by saying that they "bring the Jew fire". The album is shown briefly and includes an enormous Star of David, surrounded in flames, and the three band members standing in the foreground. After seeing the clever cover art Nick creates for one of his "Closure" CDs for Tris, even a novice can see how awful their CD looks.
Electric Lady Studios. Electric Lady Studios is a real recording studio and it is located in Greenwich Village at 52 West 8th Street. It was founded by Jimi Hendrix in 1970 and has been the recording studio for a wide variety of artists including; Curtis Mayfield, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, John Lennon, The Clash, Common, Stevie Wonder, and Led Zeppelin.
|Even though they promise to deliver Caroline to her home, Thom, Dev, and Lethario stop to get a snack and while they are gone, Caroline escapes from the van because she mistook them for kidnappers/sexual predators. Where are they getting snacks when she disappears?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Gray's Papaya. As Thom calls Nick to break the bad news that they lost Caroline, he is standing in front of Gray's Papaya, which is a well-known hot dog joint that has four locations on the West Side of Manhattan that are open 24 hours.
|When everyone gathers to see Where's Fluffy? at Brooklyn Pool (BK Pool), they realize too late that another band has pulled a "bait and switch" and Where's Fluffy? is not there after all. What band has pulled the "bait and switch"?||Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Are You Randy?. According to Norah, this isn't the first time Are You Randy? has pulled this kind of a stunt. Once everyone knew that Where's Fluffy? wasn't playing everyone leaves as fast as they can. The only person left is one guy who is legitimately excited for Are You Randy? and he proceeds to take his shirt off and rock out in a freestyle Ska fashion that is not frequently seen any more...with good reason. The front man of the band is also seen many times throughout the movie, specifically at the first bar making out with Caroline and then again at the actual Where's Fluffy? concert.
You Sexy Thing. Tris was doing her best to get Nick back. She talked him into driving her home, then had him pull over by the river and started dancing for him.
"You Sexy Thing" was a hit for Hot Chocolate in the 1970s and has been covered several times since.
Camera Obscura. She had found her way to a holiday drag show, Midnight X, at the Camera Obscura. She popped out of the top of the Christmas tree and wished Norah a "Happy Hanukkah".
They missed her at both the Port Authority and the convenience store. Since Caroline had said that she had found Jesus, they thought she might be at a church so checked out one before they figured out where she might be.
Street intersection. The number clue was announced on the radio and Caroline figured out that it was Fifth Avenue and 68th Street, New York. 10021 was the zip code for the area.
Lethario. For much of the movie, his name was a mystery. Played by Jonathan B. Wright, Nick referred to him as Beefy Guy. Lethario fixed Nick's car and assisted them in losing and finding Caroline.
Wright had a part in the 2009 movie, "Youth in Revolt", alongside fellow "Nick and Norah" alums, Michael Cera and Ari Graynor.
Brown University. She had been accepted at Brown but wasn't sure if she would go or just start the job that she had waiting for her. Nick was going to attend the Berkley School of Music in Boston, which was an hour away from Brown.
Jimi Hendrix. Located in New York's Greenwich Village, Electric Lady Studios was built by Jimi Hendrix in 1970. Artists who have recorded there include Dave Matthews Band, Patti Smith, The Clash, the Rolling Stones and John Lennon.
In the movie, Norah's father, Ira Silverberg, owned it.
New York and New Jersey. Nick lived in Hoboken, New Jersey and Norah lived and went to school in Englewood, New Jersey. The action took place in both New York City and various locations in New Jersey.
Dr. Manomanowitz. Not realizing that Nick was Tris's old boyfriend, Norah pretended that Nick was her boyfriend and that they had met at their dentist's office. Not quick on her feet, Norah comes up with "Dr. Man...Dr. Manomanowitz."
Yugo. He drove a rusty yellow Yugo, which was mistaken for a cab more than once during the movie. "Once you buy one, you see them everywhere," Nick jokingly told Norah.
The Zastava Koral, or Yugo, was designed by the Zastava Corporation of Yugoslavia based on a design from Fiat.
A Yugo played a part in the 2000 dark comedy, "Drowning Mona", as well. The majority of the townspeople of Verplanck, New York drove Yugos as they once had an assembly plant in the town.
Where's Fluffy?. The fictional band, Where's Fluffy, was playing a concert at an unknown venue the night that Nick and Norah met. Nick told Norah that he was the first person to hear Fluffy's "Black Carnage" album.
