    Allusions (4)

    • Niko: Four years in prison can change a man's relation. Jonny: You would know. R.E Rodgers, who plays Niko, should know because he was a prisoner on Oz for 5 seasons.

    • The scene where Random is walking to the club is similar to John Travolta's walk in 'Saturday Night Fever' to the tune of 'Staying Alive' by 'The Bee Gees'. (Although the song is slightly modernized when Random is walking)

    • When Jonny rips Niko's shirt, he sees a swastika tattoed to his chest. Niko goes to explain he got it tattoed while in prison. This is another allusion to R.E. Rodgers who played the role of a white supremist in the TV series, Oz.

    • (About Jonny) Vincent: I didn't know he played chess. Random: Yeah, he's a real Bobby Fischer. Vincent: Who's Bobby Fischer? Bobby Fischer is an American chess Grandmaster and became the only US-born chessplayer to become the official World Chess Champion.
