Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: The collar tabs and shoulder boards of the Korean Colonel are incorrect. The stars are positioned to form a triangle, but they should all be in line with each other.

    • Nitpick: CJ's demolition charges are used as decoys and as antipersonnel weapons. But many go off behind the North Korean soldiers in the brightly lit territory directly in front of the compound's fence. There is no way CJ could have planted them without being spotted by the guards on duty.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Benny Ray: Well, it's fear that keeps us alive, compadre. Way I look at it, fear keeps us at the top of our game. Keeps us from getting brave- brave is just stupid. Yup, fear is our friend; love it, feel it, taste it, smell it.
      CJ: You're getting me hot.
      Benny Ray: That's the idea. Fear is our mistress, boys. You love her good and hard- she might just keep you alive.

    • Colonel Kim: What will it be, Mr Shepherd? Cooperation, or death?
      Matt: Cooperation is death!

    • Matt: (about to be executed) Your country's a mess! Life's a b****!
      Colonel Kim: And then you die. So ends the parable. (orders the firing squad to form up)

    • Colonel Kim: (as Matt is secured to a wall for execution) I've always been fascinated with brave men who would rather die for their noble causes than live for them.
      Matt: Well, you're a cheap date.
      Colonel Kim: Explain, please.
      Matt: Cheap date, easy to please.

    • Matt: I was wrong. Everybody doesn't come home.
      Margo: Don't say that! Everyone needs something to believe in, a reason to go on, to do what we do!

    • Colonel Kim: You are spies!
      Margo: No! That is not true!
      Colonel Kim: If I say it's true, then it's true.
      Margo: You're psychotic!
      Colonel Kim: (smiling) Of course.

    • Benny Ray: It's always the easy ones that get your private parts caught in your zipper.
      CJ: Colorful image.

    • CJ: (referring to the North Korean, Chinese, and Russian border) I mean, we get caught on the wrong side of that border, we may as well bend over and kiss it goodbye!
