While discussing the best course of action to take against Suleiman, Farnsworth chimes in, telling the group that "Blue trained for a month before the Abbottabad raid. "The raid of Abbottabad was the legendary CIA-led operation that ended in the targeting killing of Osama bin Laden, the Al Qaeda leader responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001."Blue" is an anachronistic term that refers to "Blue Light," an elite counterterrorism unit born in the 1970's that was eventually superseded by Delta Force.

When Dr. Nadler (portrayed by Matt McCoy) receives the meds he asked for from Suleiman, Suleiman reminds Nadler what he asked for, antibiotics, acetaminophen, iodine, etc. Back in the "dungeon" where the medical personnel are held captive, he shares the medicine with the other team members, and then gets up to give some meds to the previous Arab terrorist cell leader who was usurped by Suleiman, and one of the medical team members asks Nadler what he is giving to the Arab? Nadler's answer is "he has had a fever for three days, his arm is broken, and....an aspirin tablet." This is incorrect, since Nadler neither asked for nor received aspirin (which is the most common trade name for acetylsalicylic acid), he asked for and received acetaminophen, which is the chemical and generic name for the medicine commonly known as Tylenol. Both are pain relievers and fever reducers, and both have chemical names which begin with "acet," but otherwise the two medications are quite different. See more »


Jack Ryan (2017): You know, there's a few other bars in DC where you can get a club soda and lime.
James Greer: Uh, yeah. But if I went to one of those other bars, I might meet some friendly strangers, get into some conversation, end up having a good time. Only here, at this bar, can I sit next to a morose motherfucker in a J. Crew button-down. and be depressed all night...
