Did You Know?
There are several subtle hints to James Bond in this episode (Timothy Dalton
was still James Bond at the time this episode was made, though he later resigned the role in 1994). First, Dalton's character Lokai wears a Rolex Submariner, which was his Bond's watch of choice in "Licence to Kill". Dalton also takes a Walther PPK from Mr. Hertz (Bond's gun of choice) during the episode. Lokai is good at games, as is Bond, as evidenced by the fact he's relaxing on money he won off of Carl. And during the showdown, Hertz taunts Lokai by saying Carl liked to play games. Lokai replies "That's the difference between Carl and me...I never lose." This echos Connery's response to Largo in "Never Say Never Again." "Do you lose as gracefully as you win?" "I wouldn't know. I've never lost." See more
Mr Lokai, trying to impress Janice Baird with what he knows about her, refers to "Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition' in G major". 'Pictures . . .' is a collection of separate descriptive pieces representing paintings in a museum. Music like this is almost never referred to by the key it begins in, as are Symphonies and Concerti. In fact, Mussorgsky's piece begins in B-flat major, and none of the separate pieces is in G major.
