      • When Laura, Steele, Murphy, and Morrie start plotting to take down Constantine, Steele's inspiration comes from The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) with Steve McQueen. Sixteen years later Pierce Brosnan would star in the 1999 remake of the film.

      • When Mr. Steele and Morrie leave the office, Steele takes his coat from somewhere behind his office door. However, when, earlier, he and Morrie went into his office, the only things that were there were an empty coat rack and an empty chair; Mr. Steele wasn't wearing the coat, either.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Murphy: (speaking of Steele) You've gone a whole day without him. Laura, It's just like smoking, the longer you stay away, the less craving you'll have. So! Dinner, now, with me. I love it when I'm forceful.

      • Steele: Where's fourth gear?
        Morrie: Fourth gear? I haven't used the fourth gear since, what was the year the astronauts walked on the moon?
        Steele: Sixty-nine, I think.
        Morrie: That was the year. But it's there someplace. Just keep shaking the stick!

      • Steele: I just want you two kids to be happy.
        Laura: The hell you do!
