  • Trivia

    • The dial that Willy sees in the mirrors does not match the dial on the vault a few minutes later when he drops the money. The first dial has only ten numbers spaced out around the complete circumference of the dial. The dial he attaches to the vault in the second shot has more numbers which are much smaller and spaced closer together, and only cover about two-thirds of the circumference. Later when Paris breaks into the vault, the dial has reverted to its original appearance when he goes in, and then the more cramped configuration yet again when he leaves.

  • Quotes

    • Jim: The House of Rakozny dates from the 14th century without a breath of scandal. Now, to protect it, you would ask me to become a thief and a traitor to my country.
      Stravos: We all have to make little compromises.

    • Paris: I mean half of the hundred million. A full partnership.
      Stravos: Ohhh, no, you can't be serious.
      Paris: I am very serious when it comes to risking my life. I don't know what I would do without it.

    • Jim: The sound frequency in that corridor is three million cycles. You won't be able to hear it, but in two minutes it can turn you into a vegetable.
      Paris: I will try to remember that.

  • Notes

    • The brief shot of Stravos' voice print is recycled footage from the third season episode "The Bunker" where the laboratory there had a similar sound system.
