  • NOTES (0)


    • Aasif Mandvi: (Voice Over) Clearly, I had stumbled onto a sleeper cell.

      Aasif holds up a deck of cards, showing the Queen of Diamonds squarely at Jay Chen

      Jay Chen: (in reference to the playing card) What are you doing?
      Aasif Mandvi: Isn't this your trigger card?
      Jay Chen: That's a playing card.

      Aasif is using the same trigger card as was used in the pulp-thriller novel The Manchurian Candidate, originally published in 1959. In the book, American soldiers fighting in the Korean War are abducted, brought into the Manchuria region of China, and brainwashed. One of these soldiers was turned into a sleeper Communist assassin when properly triggered by seeing a Queen of Diamonds playing card. This triggering technique was used in the 1962 film adaptation, but dropped in the updated 2004 film adaptation.
