    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Written on the note board when Darnell's dad comes in to give him his orders:

        Monthly Goals
        Gain control of Arctic Resources
        Replace Prime Minister of Canada w/ android
        Blame global warming on Syrians
        Locate and destroy leaders of New Zealand revolutionary movement

        Drop off point
        Access road
        Buried treasure

        Checked off as completed when Darnell comes back
        Replaced Prime Minister of Canada w/ android
        Located and destroyed leaders of New Zealand revolutionary movement

      • Featured Music:
        "The Girl from Ipanema" sung by Astrud Gilberto (Played on Thomas' car radio)
        "Theme From Shaft" by Issac Hayes (Thomas' flashback to being a spy)
        "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers (Earl watches father and son work)

    • 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.
