** Did Hummel say MyGodWhatHaveIDone because he trusted [[spoiler: Frye and Darrow]] or because he broke his moral code by killing [[spoiler: Crisp?]]

Added DiffLines:

** And in case you thought they did it by accident (although they enjoyed it), there is the scene later on when they decide to carry on with the missile attack after Hummel decides to call it off (revealing that he was bluffing all along). As put by Darrow, they are mercenaries now, so if they want to get paid, they need to make sure the government sees that they weren't weak.

* NightmareFuel: One of Hummel's men falling victim to the VX gas during the raid. Seeing his genuine panic as his body begins to boil is pretty unnerving, as is the fact that his fellow marines can do nothing for him.

* MST3KMantra: It's best not to complain about VX being corrosive when it's not in real life; [[RuleOfDrama it's pretty much there for the sake of drama]].

** The deadly poison is bright green and kept in glass balls the size of ping-pong balls. There's a reason for that related to their dispersal, but it's hard to take seriosuly something so goddamn pretty.

* HilariousInHindsight: Mason hands over the microfilm with the truth behind WhoShotJFK and other secrets to Goodspeed. NicolasCage would later get his hands on ''the original copy'' in ''NationalTreasure: Book of Secrets''.

**Todd Louiso's first line is to mock Goodspeed for spending a fortune on an LP when he could've spent $16 on the same album on CD. [[Literature/HighFidelity Dick would no doubt be disgusted by such a sentiment.]]

* RootingForTheEmpire: Hummel is incredibly root for. He only uses violent force when he absolutely has to, takes no joy in the methods he's been forced to use, is fighting for an unequivocally righteous cause (getting financial aid for the surviving families of subordinates who died under his command while on black ops missions the government has disavowed) and ultimately reveals [[spoiler: he was never planning to launch the rockets anyway and even aids the heroes in disabling them in his dying moments.]].
