This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Mark builds a makeshift hot tub after injuring his back. He doesn't.
   After Vogel rigs the VAL door to explode he returns to the airlock in his space suit to assist Beck in retrieving Watney. Vogel remains in the control room.
   Mark listens to Johanssen's Beatles collection. He makes it seem as though the only music available is Disco from Commander Lewis.
   Mark said the last thing he remembered before being hit by the dish, was Johanssen reaching out towards him. Watney was the last in the line and it was impossible to see him get hit by the dish. The crew knew he was hit because of their alarms letting them know.
   When Mark is on the Hermes, and he sees a crew mates reaction to his smell, he says something about smelling like a skunk shit on a dirty sock. As everyone is hugging him and whatnot, you hear a voice say "Oh a little stink" or something.
