Quotes: Pac-Man Fever
What do I know about Nintendo? Very little, but I know this — I once got to the second level of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So when I see a movie like this and they're talking about getting to the third level, even a dummy like me knows that they're showing the first level on screen.

The thing is, I can almost understand the ridiculous portrayal of hacking earlier — most people haven't hacked a computer. But there aren't many places you can go in America where someone in the room hasn't played an MMORPG. If you're confused, fucking ask somebody, Mr. TV Writer. Because unless you're performing your cop show live in the cafeteria of a nursing home, lots of your viewers are going to know you pulled a whole scene straight out of your ass.
