Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Trivia: The tune Ellington whistles in the hangar is "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot", a spiritual tune originally composed by Wallis Willis in 1862. To some, the tune is thought to give reference to parts of the Underground Railroad, a secret organization used to help escaped slaves make the journey to the Northern states and later Canada.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Jay: What's this?
      John Ellington: It's a portable polygraph machine. We use them for intake interviews with new clients.
      Tyler: Why would we lie?
      John Ellington: You wouldn't… outwardly.
      Jay: I've never heard of a firm that does this to their own clients.
      John Ellington: We're not a law firm, Mr. Burchell. It's for our protection.
      Jay: Yeah, but if we hired you, you should be worried about protecting us.
      John Ellington: Mr. Burchell, these are our rules. If you won't abide by them then we're just wasting each other's time here.
      Carlton Fog: It's fine. They'll do it. Think of it as practice. I speak from experience, it takes more than one polygraph to clear your name.

    • Tyler: Did my father know about this? (after a pause) Tell me!
      Ellington: Your father is the least of your worries.

    • Tyler: Look, whatever happened between me and my father is over, OK? He was just testing me.
      Jay: Why would he wanna test you?
      Tyler: Because that's what dads do!
