** The "Unnecessarily Slow Moving Dipping Mechanism" parodied in the first ''AustinPowers'' film was more than likely inspired by the machine that Kananga uses in his attempt to dispose of Bond and Solitaire near the end of this film. Kananga wanted to give the shark a chance to get the scent of blood; ironically, Whisper ''was'' going to put Bond in fast- Kananga told him to ''slow down'' to, as he put it, "let our diners assemble".

* SexFaceTurn: Solitaire may have actually been attracted to him before it happened. (She may have [[MysteriousBacker secretly sent him a warning]] that the first girl worked for Mr. Big) and truly switched sides after he seduced her. (He tricked her - possibly. He later told her that the deck of tarot cards he used was rigged, but she was neither upset nor surprised; it was clear she held at least some grudge against Mr. Big already.)
