    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Peele: Do you know I'm working a 65 hour week?
        Burnside: Standard hours in the Ops department.
        Peele: But you're no longer married. By the time I get home at night, I'm too exhausted to do anything.
        Burnside: Your wife will be writing one of those problem papers.

      • Burnside: Where's Willie tonight?
        Wallace: Oh, he's got a date.
        Burnside: His mother's in town is she?

      • Caine: Kennedy and King were in the days of Hoover, weren't they? He was a nutter.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • O'Shea: I believe it was Martin Luther King, that other great worker for civil rights, who said "Some men see things as they are and say, 'Why?' I dream of things that never were and say, 'Why not?'"

        O'Shea's quote was actually by George Bernard Shaw and is frequently misattributed to Robert Kennedy.

      • Day of the Jackal

        The 1973 film, about an assassin named the Jackal, is mentioned by Wallace as an appropriate choice.

      • Karen Milner: Talk to the American Rifle Association about that one.

        The "ARA" is an obvious reference to the National Rifle Association.
