There is a scene where a man is knocked onto the kitchen floor of the diner and a few cockroaches are seen crawling around his face. A special border was built around the area where the cockroaches were filmed and Vaseline was applied to the top to prevent them from escaping. The trainer released the roaches from a container and retrieved them at completion of the shot.
