Did You Know?

Edit
Goofs In his opening voice-over, the character Johnny Grand (Ron Livingston) attributes the quote "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive," to William Shakespeare. Sir Walter Scott actually wrote that in Marmion in 1808, about 192 years after Shakespeare died. This probably is the quote most often erroneously attributed to Shakespeare. See more »
