  • Trivia

    • When Jaime arrives at Dr. Hatch's research lab, her hair is in a pony tail. As she is leaving, we learn she is being watched and we see a shot of Jaime (supposedly still in her car driving away) with her hair down.

  • Quotes

    • Gregory: You're under arrest.
      Jaime: (hands him the files) Tell me about it after you read this.
      Oscar: You almost went out with a bang.
      Jaime: (rolling her eyes) Oh, I hoped you wouldn't say that!

    • Oscar: There's been an attempt made to steal it over the past month. Luckily, the guards here spotted it, but we can't take any chances. Jaime, tomorrow morning, a special military convoy will escort it to Mojave Secret Center for testing.
      Jaime: And I get to ride on a truck with four hundred marines, right?
      Oscar: Wrong. We're going to steal a little idea from the British. At the turn of the century, there was a fabulous diamond called the Star of Africa. The British knew that thieves were after it, so they apparently sent it to London under heavy guard. What they actually did was simply mail it, parcel post. Nobody knew the difference. It arrived, safely.
      Jaime: So I'm gonna be your basic plain brown wrapper.

    • Oscar: Well, Miss Sommers, whataya think? Does that look like three years work and nearly forty million dollars?
      Jaime: Looks like a garage door opener. I suppose when you plug that little goodie in, it does all kinds of exotic things, huh?
      Dr. Hatch: Hmmm... as a matter of fact, that does about cover it.
      Oscar: Specifically, it's Dr. Hatch's Cryptograph Analyzer.
      Dr. Hatch: Plugged into the right computer, that "goodie" can break any code in the world.
      Oscar: And if it does what Dr. Hatch says it does, it'll be invaluable to NATO's defense.

    • Jaime: Boy, now I know how Bambi felt on the first day of deer season.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Although he's never heard nor named, the Secretary of State is obviously Henry Kissinger, since Jaime says his "accent is charming" and says "auf Wiedersehen" at the end of the conversation.
