      The final scene, where the Cigarette Smoking Man places the box containing an important item on a storage shelf in a vast warehouse space in the Pentagon filled with nondescript boxes, is very reminiscent of the final scene of the 1981 movie. In that movie, the first to feature the Indiana Jones character, the crate containing the Ark of the Covenant is placed on a storage shelf in a vast warehouse space in an unnamed government building. In both cases, the scene makes the point that the government is covering up important scientific finds and storing them out of the reach of the public.
