Trivia

Jesse's (David Soul) line "They haven't invented the hard time that I ain't prepared to handle" is almost exactly the same as Beedan's (Dennis Haysbert) line "There ain't been a hard time invented that I cannot handle" in Heat (1995), also written by Michael Mann. A variation of the line is also found in The Jericho Mile (1979) when Murphy (Peter Strauss) says "Are you gonna tell me they invented a hard time you can't handle?" The Jericho Mile was also written and directed by Mann. The line is also used by Gina (Saundra Santiago) in an episode of Miami Vice (1984) (Miami Vice: Give a Little, Take a Little (1984)) and by Julie Torello (Darlanne Fluegel) in the pilot episode of Crime Story (1986); both shows were executive produced by Mann.
