Trivia

Boyd asks Chuck, "why do you default to demanding and threatening? Why don't you ever ask what I want?" Chuck responds, "what do you want?" and Boyd says, "thanks for asking. I like simple pleasures: butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth, and taking my boat to Antibes free and clear." Though Chuck gives no sign that he recognizes the reference, the first two items in Boyd's list are actually a quotation from the movie Boogie Nights. Later, while talking to Connerty, Boyd again integrates a movie quote into his everyday speech without any signal to the person with whom he is talking that he is quoting something. Boyd asks Connerty, "The Nite Owl case made you. Do you really want to tear that all down?," which is something that Bud White (Russell Crowe) says to Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) in the movie LA Confidential. Unlike Chuck, Connerty shows that he recognizes that Boyd is quoting a movie by replying with Exley's next line: "With a wrecking ball. Wanna help me swing it?" See more »
