  • QUOTES (3)

    • Thomas: There's a bomb in this briefcase attached to your wrist. If you don't want your neighbors to pick up pieces of you out of the azaleas, you tell me where Darnell Turner is.
      Earl: What are azaleas?

    • Earl: Darnell always told us his dad died in the American-Canadian War.

    • Joy: You told me your daddy died in a Ferris wheel accident. That's why you never ride them.
      Darnell: I don't ride them because you refuse to obey the 'no rocking' sign. Plus, I didn't want to talk about my dad. Two birds.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Thomas: I'm getting too old for this crap.

      Danny Glover (Thomas) used this punchline in the Lethal Weapon movies as well.

    • The name of the episode and the government operative events refer to the canceled ABC TV show Alias, a show about a counter-government agency operative.

    • When the bomb is about to go off, the scene cuts into four separate images. The sound effects and the ticking clock the same ones used in the Fox TV show 24.
