Corrected the link leading to 'Creator/Mel Gibson' (was Ceator/Mel Gibson)
* AuthorAppeal: Riggs is a fan of Creator/TheThreeStooges and occasionally apes their trademark moves. Actor Ceator/MelGibson is an outspoken Stooges fan.

** When Riggs, Murtaugh and Lianne escape from the boiler room, they make their way to the main room of a nightclub. A guy holding a gun turns to face them and Riggs shoots and kills him almost instantly. It's very loud. ''No one seems to notice.'' He kills two more people in the nightclub, and no one reacts until the third kill.
