      • Doreau: Captain, I think we can get the professor to Springfield without using a plane. We'll use an alternative form of transportation that no one ever uses any more.
        Hammer: That's a good idea, Doreau. We'll take a stagecoach. I'll ride shotgun.

      • Doreau: I hate to think I'm sharing my room with a cow.
        Hammer: Yeah, well, I thought I'd never do it again.
        Doreau: What do you mean, again?
        Hammer: I told you, I was married.

      • Vronsky: I have claustrophobia. I have spent once ten years in cramped little room like this.
        Hammer: What, were you in a prison, huh?
        Vronsky: No, luxury condo in Moscow.

      • Vronsky: You will enjoy chess. It's good for nerves.
        Hammer: When I became a cop, I had my nerves removed.

      • Hammer: I'm going to catch that Commie and make him play Russian Roulette the hard way, with a bullet in every chamber.

      • Vronsky: What is that?
        Hammer: It's a target. What, you've never saw a target before?
        Vronsky: Oh, in Russia we practice by shooting at dissidents.
        Hammer: Uh, well, here we call them "liberals."

      • Hammer: I'm not afraid of anything - except world peace!

      • Opening Scene:
        After Hammer's run-in with the plane, a man who looks like Alfred Hitchcock walks past and says, "Good evening." This is a nod to Alfred Hitchcock Presents, in which Hitchcock delivers the same opening line.

      • Opening Scene
        The opening scene, with Sledge being chased by a (model) plane, references the scene in Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959) where Cary Grant is chased by a crop duster.
