Seen about two-thirds of the way through the credits: "Don't Go, It's Almost Over."
Thanks to Amy Green
In the hotel scenes, Lily Tomlin is featured wearing a concert T-Shirt from rock star Tina Turner's 1985 "Break Every Rule" tour.
Thanks to Mark Campbell
The boy in the toy store who plays Bette Midler's son is a very young Seth Green from "Can't Buy Me Love", "Austin Powers" & "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" fame.
Thanks to Tony
In the scene where Bette Midler makes her first appearance in NYC, notice how the statue in the elevator lobby is positioned to look like it's shielding itself from her.
Thanks to Gabe King
Throughout the scenes inside the Plaza Hotel there is a lady with a dog whose wardrobe changes with each dog color. She is initially seen wearing a white dress with a white dog in the scene where Sadie and Rose Ratliff first enter the Plaza. Then she is seen wearing a brown dress with a brown dog and finally a black dress with a black dog.
Thanks to Tony
Notice how Sadie's jacket in New York is cut - now look at Sadie's jacket from Jupiter Hollow - the red plaid one. It's the same cut. Also, in Jupiter Hollow, how could Sadie's hair be pulled back and curled into all those ringlets when wearing it down it's a short bob? It's a beautiful Disney Films custom wig for Ms. Midler.
Thanks to Tony
Notice subtle costume similarities in the characters. When New York Sadie goes to dinner with Fabio she is wearing a black bodiced bell-dress with red wrap and skirting. Then, when Jupiter Hollow Sadie walks up to the concierge desk, she has a red wrap around HER black bodiced dress. From the chest up they look the same to the concierge!
