- at 2:31, a subliminal message, the graffity on the wall says: 'PIN8 ÁNDATE A LA CHUCHA ¿YA?' meaning: 'PINOCHET GO TO THE SHIT, OK?'
- at 2:57, Sebastián's nephew José Tomás, at the age of 6, eating an apple in Mallarauco; Sebastián used to horse around with him, for his 'chinese' eyes and because, according to Sebastián, José Tomás had the merit of being the only 'fat Santa María'. (as)
