Rudi Gunn: [Dirk wants Al to pull a "Panama"] What's a Panama?
Al Giordino: It's a Navy thing.

Al Giordino: [points at Dirks coin clue] Hey, you know my dad collected ancient coins, from Rome, China, Siam, Persia... somehow they all ended up in a shoe box in New Jersey.

Al Giordino: Coins travel, Dirk. I mean, even if that poor guy was still alive, it could have been nothing.
