Trivia

The letter Q is not used in Turkish so "Shebbeq" would not be a legal name in Turkey. "Şebek", which is how the name would be written phonetically in Turkish, means "baboon, gibbon or hideously ugly person". See more »

Goofs

When Regan is shown mixing a cocktail in a pitcher whilst speaking to Carter on the telephone he reaches around to the fridge for a bottle, which he sets down on the bench-top. In the next cut he is shown with a bucket of ice, which wasn't there before. Also a green bottle close to the window has been moved. See more »
