  • Trivia

    • Goof: The hand-off of Hamza is supposed to take place at 48th and 10th, but the street shown is along the Hudson River, which is several blocks away from 10th to the west. The real intersection of 10th and 48th is surrounded by many businesses, making the address a poor choice for a clandestine meeting.

  • Quotes

    • Nick: (as Donna says goodbye to him) I'll always regret not marrying Donna Braga.
      Donna: I know.

    • Matt: (learning that Hamza has info on an imminent terrorist attack) I know it's not usually our thing, but if you need me to do a debriefing, I can do that for you.
      Trout: Come on, Matt, there's protocol.
      Matt: The hell with protocol!
      Trout: Matt, remember the politics of dancing: take the lead, and don't step on any egos.
      Matt: Well, I've never been much of a dancer.
      Trout: I know. That's why you play in the band.

    • Benny Ray: Look, you and me, we're alot alike, compadre. And if you ever want to talk, I'm right here, all right? You didn't show up for your wedding, and me, I never, ever showed up for my marriage.
      Nick: And so, here we are.
      Benny Ray: Yes sir, here we are.

    • Aqil: What happened to you, Hamza? You used to be such an honorable man!
      Hamza: Honor makes us blind, Aqil. That's why you can't see that the Emperor has no clothes.

    • Deke: (stepping out and surprising a bike messenger) Hm, nice bag. Can I have it?
      Courier: Hey bro, I'm not looking for trouble!
      Deke: Did you know in America, we got a king? His name is Benjamin. (pulls out a roll of $100s)

    • Benny Ray: Does it have something to do with the Mob? That's it, isn't it? That's why you're so damn nervous!
      Nick: Here it is, all right? I'm gonna tell you once, so listen up. I'm not going to repeat it again.
      Benny Ray: Okay.
      Nick: I left New York because of Nunya.
      Benny Ray: Nunya?!
      Nick: Nunya, yeah, none of your damn business, all right?!

    • Benny Ray: I really can't stand New York. It's loud, obnoxious, just like the people who live here. (he looks pointedly at Nick)
      Nick: What are you looking at me for?!
