* CrowningMomentOfAwesome:
** When Senator Prentice is trying to buttonhole Colonel Casey, he responds:
-->'''Prentice:''' But you make me think that fruit salad on your chest is for neutrality, evasiveness and fence-straddling.
-->'''Casey:''' On the contrary, they're standard awards for cocktail courage and dinner-table heroism. [[DeadpanSnarker I thought you'd invented them.]]
* OneSceneWonder: John Houseman as one of the coup-plotters. It was his first appearance before the camera after years of working on the production side of the business.
* UnfortunateImplications: Early in the novel, Colonel Casey propositions his wife by saying, "If you were more woman and we had more time, this might be a pretty good afternoon for rape." [[{{Squick}} Sheesh.]]
