The Hollywood Bowl was used for the scene during the date where they have their serious talk about how they were using one another.

The gas station scenes were filmed in Beverly Hills/West L.A. on Pico Blvd. Just a few blocks over from the intersection of Robertson and Pico. It is no longer a gas station and is now a mechanic shop.
