    • Eliot: Who am I? I'm just a fly in the ointment, pal.
      This and most of Eliot's other dialogue to Powell, as well as Nate's scheme to have Eliot pose as an off-duty cop stuck on the inside in a hostage situation, are taken directly from the movie Die Hard (1988), which starred Bruce Willis as John McClane, an off-duty New York cop trapped in a building when supposed terrorists take over. As of this episode's premiere, the movie spawned three sequels. Die Hard With a Vengeance (1995) marked the screen premiere of a young Aldis Hodge (Hardison).
