*** Could also be a double shout out to something [[FalloutNewVegas a tad more recent]] given it has a wealthy greedy isolated old man with a love of snow globes, which in itself was a shout out to the first shout out.

* Hardison generally talks about his van [[CoolHandLuke Lucille]] in terms of just how innocent or well-built she is. Too bad he doesn't know a pretty blonde who could wash it for him.

* The Long Goodbye Job gives off this ''Film/SuckerPunch'', ''Film/FightClub'', and ''Film/{{Inception}}'' vibe where you really have to THINK about what your watching, what they're saying, and where you are in The Plan/Heist.

* In "The Inside Job", Parker gets into trouble when she tries to break into a building with a "Steranko" security system.[[note]]Jim Steranko, a comic artist, was perhaps most famous for his "ComicBook/NickFury: Agent of SHIELD" work. Nick Fury was a counter-intelligence expert, so "Steranko" is an apropos name for a security system. Steranko was also an '''EscapeArtist''' before working in comics, so giving his name to an escape-proof system is a bit of intentional irony; [[http://kfmonkey.blogspot.com/2010/07/leverage-303-inside-job-post-game.html "That's meta three levels deep."]][[/note]] Also, Sophie and Hardison give the aliases [[Series/TheAvengers Emily Peel and Jonathan Steed]] when pretending to be auditors. And we're introduced to [[CaryGrant Archie Leach]] - "the greatest thief of all time".
