Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Other people had to have handled the team's video equipment before Coyote did. Therefore any perfume traces she left were most likely contaminated, and wouldn't have produced an accurate spectrograph.

    • At the hospital, Jim states (twice) that Shannon pushed him aside and took the bullet meant for him. She did not. All she did was step in front of him. She might have been trying to shield him; then again, she might have just been stepping further inside.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Caron: You did well.
      Informer: I betrayed my country!
      Caron: (hands over a briefcase of money) I'm sure this will comfort your conscience.

    • Bartender: Keep asking questions and you're going to wake up in an alley, your throat cut. You're wasting your time.
      (Nicholas puts money down on the bar)
      Nicholas: That's to show you haven't been wasting yours.

    • Max: A diamond drill. That should cut through steel like knife through butter.
      Shannon: I can think of a better use for diamonds!

    • Shannon: I guess I really fouled things up.
      Jim: You kept me from taking a .22 bullet in the heart, you found out that Coyote is a woman. Now if that's fouling up, yes you're right, you did foul up. Thank you.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The first movie aired at the film festival is Romeo & Juliet with Olivia de Hussey.

    • The name of the fake film company the IMF set up is "Harry Palmer Productions." Harry Palmer was the name of the spy in Len Deighton's spy novels, played by Michael Caine in several movies.
