    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Mr Bauer: I had a dream once, dance. I wanted so badly to join this one company, I could taste it. Sure enough, one thing lead to another, I got the audition of a lifetime.

        This is an allusion to the romantic musical film Flashdance from 1983. The film tells the story of Alex, played by Jennifer Beals, who works as an exotic dancer at night, and at a steel mill during the day, and her dream to become a dancer at a prestigious academy.

      • Berg: (about Mr Bauer) Is it just me, or is he dancing like he's never danced before.

        This is an allusion to the song Maniac by Michael Sembello, which was featured in the movie Flashdance.

      • Mr Bauer: It was me and the Nazis in a race against time. The future of mankind depended on me retrieving the Ark of the Covenant.

        This is an allusion to the 1981 adventure film Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark by Steven Spielberg. In the movie Harrison Ford plays the archaeologist Indiana Jones who is hired to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis acquire it.
