When Jack and Tess are in the negotiations between Ambrister and Trask, Jack comments "we're all waiting to see what color smoke comes out of the chimney." It's a reference about the election of a new pope in the Vatican of Rome: to chose new pope. The ballots are burned after each vote and the smoke is visible to the public outside. If a pope is not selected, straw is mixed with the ballots to make black smoke. If a pope is elected, the ballots are burned alone yielding white smoke. See more »

Come run with me now the sky is the colour of blue you've never even seen in the eyes of your mother
That's a a line from the title song, New Jerusalem. One of the best bits of the movie. This is just such a happy, inspiring movie that you have to like it. Harrison Ford is brilliant (when is he not?) and you really feel sorry for Melanie Griffith. The characters are easy to understand. Not the most intellectual film ever but so what. It's fun and a great script.
