Mike and Harvey make multiple references to this movie. Tricking the boys to meet by sending a message as each other. Harvey says "Looks like the rattlesnakes are starting to commit suicide." Tricking the weakest boy into thinking the other is going kill him if he doesn't tell the truth.
Roger Furlong gets his assistant Will to say that he moves "as slowly as a Mississippi detective investigating the murder of a young black man".
