Trivia

The Cigarette-Smoking Man's line "Anyone who can appease a man's conscience can take his freedom away" is taken from Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov".
The title comes from Mark 5:41, in which Jesus heals the daughter of Jairus and quotes the Aramaic phrase meaning "Little girl, get up!".
Another reference to Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov": the name of the fast food restaurant is "Brothers K".
Talitha is an uncommon feminine name meaning "little girl" in Aramaic, given in reference to the Biblical story in the Gospel of Mark in which Jesus Christ was said to have resurrected a dead child with the words "Talitha cumi" or "Talitha kum" or "Talitha koum," meaning "Little girl, I say to you, arise!
