    • Newman: "We will cut the bike down the middle!"
      This is an obvious reference to the story that appears in the book of Kings I & III from the Bible, where two prostitutes approach King Solomon with a "trial case": They were in the same house one night, when the baby of one of the women died at night. One women claimed that the other switched the two babies around. King Solomon suggested to cut the live baby in half and share it equally. The real mother did not agree, and said that the baby should be given to the other woman and that is exactly how Solomon decided the fate of the trial. The trial in "The Seven" follows the exact same pattern.
