UM used the sweeping shot of the Golden Gate bridge for several segments involving San Francisco (starting with the Kurt McFall segment I believe). For segments involving Seattle, they used and re-used the shot of the ferry crossing Puget Sound (first used for the Cook/Van Cuylenborg segment, most appropriately).

UM was also very very careful for the most part to avoid showing any logos, signs or brand names. For instance, in the Fast Dry Glue Robber segment, the bank looked more like an innocuous office building in an industrial complex - probably due to the fact that Wells Fargo, oops, I mean, "the bank" wanted anonymity at the time. In the Wendy Camp segment, you only see the last few letters of the word "Wal-Mart", although it was mentioned by name later on.

In the Clarence Roberts segment, the second fire was noted as being on November 18, 1980, ten years to the day after the first fire. But Clarence's headstone notes the day of his death as November 29, 1980.

I noticed this too and became curious about it years ago. Apparently, UM seems to have gotten it wrong according to a couple of articles I read, of which at least one gave the date of the second fire as that on Clarence's headstone, and at least one article distinctly mentions the fire as occurring very shortly after Thanksgiving. Given that, it seems unlikely the second fire occurred on November 18, as UM asserts. It does, however, make for a slightly zestier story.

Why the segment wasn't edited to reflect the probable correct information--especially in light of the fact that footage of the headstone clearly contradicting UM's second fire date was included and rather lingered upon--is something of an unsolved mystery unto itself.
