This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Mark can't find the satellite dish that hit him. He never sees it again. When he wakes up it is sitting right next to him. He never mentions it again, but it was there.
   Mark has peas, beans and potatoes that he plans to make grow. He only focuses on the potatoes.
   Mark mentions taking vicodin for his sore back after lots of work digging the soil for his crops. He never complains of back pain, and only uses vicodin on his potatoes when he runs out of ketchup.
   Mark listens to Johanssen's Beatles collection. He makes it seem as though the only music available is Disco from Commander Lewis.
   Mark sweeps the dirt off the solar panels and it is very difficult. He is only shown using compressed air to clean them once.
