    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The American pharmacy that Jim goes into at the beginning has a sign saying "Chemist." This terminology isn't used in the U.S. The reason for the goof is that the director reused the South African pharmacy set from the episode, "Hunted."

      • In the final head-to-head poker game, Paris' cards are parallel and close to his chips in the closeup shots, but crooked and further away from the chips in the long shots.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Armand: Poor Nicole. So beautiful and yet so saturated with alcohol. So ethical and yet so immoral.

      • Leon: Colonel. Just how do you plan to get past the border guards?
        Jim: You are here to observe, not to ask questions.
        Leon: I am here as Monsieur Anderssarian's personal representative.
        Jim: Good. Then represent him in silence.

      • Nicole: Armand, at least you can tell me I did the right thing.
        Armand: Helen Conrad made you feel insecure, did she?
        Nicole: Insecure? Well, yes. When I thought you preferred her. That's why I came to this room last night. I misjudged you. I thought I'd find you together.
        Armand: I'm sorry you didn't.

      • Paris: Well, now, Monsieur Anderssarian, why don't we make the game more interesting?
        Armand: You are $250,000 behind already, Mr. Kroll. Isn't that interesting enough?
