  • Trivia

    • Goof: Fearing a huge explosion, FBI agent Reynolds directs that the visiting school children have to remain in Lightman's building and away from exterior windows. He also states that more people are killed from flying glass than by the actual explosion.

      The children are then put in the conference room which is surrounded by glass walls from ceiling to floor and each kid is seated within a foot or two of the glass. It isn't just the explosion that breaks glass; it is the shock wave and tremors that will shatter interior as well as exterior glass.

  • Quotes

    • Steele: All right, we're good to go. Now you've got some semblance of a rapport with Harold. Keep him distracted while the snipers move in, okay?
      Lightman: Oh, that's nice. Remind me to renegotiate my contract with you.

    • Loker: Okay. Who knows the words to "Puff the magic dragon"?
      Boy: My mom said that song's about illegal drugs.
      Loker: I don't think that's ever been definitively proven.

    • (Lightman is talking to a group of students)
      Lightman: So, since you dragged me from my work, who can tell me what a lie is?
      Girl: When my mom tells my dad he's not getting a big belly?
      Lightman: Yeah. Right.

    • Agent Reynolds: Remind me what this guy looks like again?
      Steele: Let's get that out to all the units.
      Lightman: Yeah, but he's not gonna look like that, is he? I mean he's probably gonna be disguised or something. You need to look for the posture and the gaze of a... terrorist.(pause.) Why am I telling you this?
      Agent Reynolds: Why don't you just come with me?

    • Cal: Look, you asked me to make the call, right? Well, now, I'm making it. There is no bomb in that trailer.
      Steele: If you're wrong, it's your ass.
      Cal: Well, if I'm wrong, in 5 minutes, I won't have an ass, will I?
      Steele: Are you telling me you're 100% sure?
      Cal: Yes. But... I'd clear the area, you know, just in case I'm wrong.

    • Cal:(Telling the third graders that are visiting the office) Lying lands you right here smack dab in front of me, when it comes to lying I'm your man.
