This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   While Watney is being retrieved by Beck he shuts off his microphone so no one can hear him scream like a little girl from the pain of his broken ribs. He leaves the microphone on and doesn't scream in pain.
   Mark has a puncture wound from the piece of antenna. Mark has a small piece of antenna lodged in his stomach that he must extract as if it were a bullet.
   Mark watches Three's Company and the Dukes of Hazzard. He's only shown watching Happy Days.
   Venkat Kapoor is the NASA directory of Mars operations. Vincent Kapoor is his name.
   Watney brushes his teeth and shaves each day. Watney has brown teeth prior to his arrival at the Ares 4 MAV and a beard.
