GOOF: While in Paris, when Tony comes in a scooter to pick Ziva up we see her holding a 200 € bank note (approx. 275 US dollars) which she leaves on the table of a coffee shop to pay for a coffee and a couple of croissants. A rather expensive breakfast unless Ziva is a very generous tipper as we don't see her waiting for the change.
GOOF: When Tony and Ziva are in Paris, we see Tony arriving in a scooter to meet Ziva but with no helmet on, then they both get on the scooter, again with no helmets. In most of European countries, France included, it is illegal and punishable by law to drive any motorcycle without a helmet.
GOOF: The whole point of having two people on a protection detail is that one person is always available to stay with the protectee. Yet both Tony and Ziva ran up the aisle of the airplane to check on the disturbance leaving the witness unprotected. That is just the type of ploy that would be used to get to someone.
GOOF: At the end when the airliner is landing at Dulles International Airport, the footage of the plane appears to be showing Air Force One.
GOOF: When Tony uses the EpiPen, he uses it upside down. The black end Tony pressed with his thumb is the tip of the pen and contains the needle and the end with the gray top/plug he removed is the top of the pen. Tony should simply have thrust the black end into the outside of Nora's thigh and the force would have caused the needle to shoot out the black end into her leg. If he had used it the way he did in the episode- pushing on the black end with his thumb- he would have injected the epinephrine into his thumb.
(when the Air Marshal comes off as suspicious, Ziva goes looking in his bag)
Air Marshal: I think you got the wrong bag.
Ziva: You have a good eye.
(Tony comes from the back)
Tony: Hey Ziva, I found your book.
Ziva: Thank you.
Tony: Still studying American History, huh? (makes snoring sounds) I just finished the Twilight Saga. I've been suggesting it to her. It's very romantic.
Ziva: Excuse me.
(Ziva brushes by the Air Marshal and picks his pocket)
Tony: I just finished book four if you want to borrow it. (points to self) Team Edward.
McGee: Hey, in Paris, who got stuck with the couch?
Tony: Me, we flipped a coin.
McGee: Tough break. (McGee leaves, leaving Tony and Ziva alone)
Ziva: Why did you just lie to McGee?
Tony: Why did you lie to Nora?
Tony: (to Ziva) Bogy and Bergman will always have Paris. Now so will we.
Nora: You are so direct, so honest, so different from him.
Ziva: Tony and I have different approaches.
Nora: You're complementary. You sure you two never...?
Ziva: No. Positive. Definitely no.
Ziva: Why do you keep on asking about Tony and I?
Nora: You're like me and Daniel. Good fit. Besides, Paris is a romantic city and you guys shared a room, so...
Ziva: I took the couch. Otherwise Tony would have whined the entire flight about his, (Ziva smiles) his back.
(Ziva pretends to want to hold Tony's hand while she is really handing him a mobile phone covertly)
Tony: (takes Ziva's hand) Honey.
Ziva: Call Abby, ask her to run Neely's incoming and outgoing calls.
Tony: On it, bossy. (Nora smiles audibly) What?
Nora: You guys say you don't get along but you make a great team.
Ziva: It is not always so smooth, believe me.
Tony: She's usually much snarkier. I think Paris changed her.

After Ziva subdues the Flight Attendant Tiffany Chase Tony says: "Talk about Snakes on a Plane, I'll take that hot towel now."
He is alluding to the 2006 movie Snakes on a Plane. That movie, too, was about Federal Agents escorting a witness being flown from Honolulu to Los Angeles to testify in an upcoming case. In the movie, the plane's bathroom is also used as a crime scene, the plane was also a 747 and a Federal Agent was killed during the flight.
Ziva: I once killed a man with a credit card.
This is an allusion to the second season of 24 where traitor Nina Meyers kills an informant with a plastic card by dragging the jagged edge of the ripped card across the throat of the informant.
There are several allusions to the the 1953 movie Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn & Gregory Peck that was filmed in Rome. Such as the scene where Tony is on a Scooter and Ziva gets on behind him and puts her arms around Tony, as well as the photograph at the end of the episode with Ziva looking at Tony's photo of her.
There are also multiple allusions to the 1942 movie Casablanca starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, that starts when Tony says to Ziva, "We've got Paris" and that ends when he once again tells her that "Bogy and Bergman will always have Paris. Now so will we."
