      • Harvey: (Hearing Louis quote about why we listen to music)
        Oh, thats beautiful Louis. Really.
        And I think your decision to leave law to become a music critic is in everyone's best interest.

      • Harvey: (seeing Mike arriving by cab) Cab? Someone steel your bike?
        Mike: I have a lot on my mind. Its a safety issue.
        Harvey: What are you talking about?

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • (to Harvey) Doctor. (to Louis) Doctor.

        Referencing the 1985 movie 'Spies Like Us' featuring Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd as wannabe spies.
        In a scene where they pose as doctors and enter a tent filled with real doctors, the introductions become hilarious when all refer to each other not by name but as 'Doctor' which begins a long chain of 'Doctor. Doctor.... and Doctor'

      • Louis: And it touches some idealistic core of your being where even the greatest cynic has not given up hope. That's why we listen to music.

        Quoting the director Peter Sellars, from an interview titled ''Nixon in China' and the Power of Music' published in 'Asia Society' - an organization working to strengthen relationships and promote understanding among the people, leaders, and institutions of the United States and Asia.

      • Mike: Do I look dashing?
        Jenny : Nobody says dashing.
        Mike: James Bond says dashing.
        Jenny : You think you're James Bond?
        Mike: I could be James Bond. I got Connery's swagger, definitely Daniel Craig's physic, Lazenby's... I have no idea what he's known for.

        Referencing the James Bond movies, and three of the actors who played the main character:
        Sean Connery
        1962 - Dr. No
        1963 - From Russia with Love
        1964 - Goldfinger
        1965 - Thunderball
        1967 - You Only Live Twice
        1971 - Diamonds Are Forever
        1983 - Never Say Never Again
        George Lazenby (really not known for anything special)
        1969 - On Her Majesty's Secret Service
        Daniel Craig
        2006 - Casino Royale
        2008 - Quantum of Solace
