* JapaneseRanguage: Otto is supposed to meet with a Japanese spy using the code phrase, "The Pearl is in the river." When a Japanese visitor tries to help an old lady whose necklace broke and her pearls fell into her dinner plate, the businessman tells her, "The pearl is in the river (liver)." Naturally, Otto mistakes him for the contact.
** Interestingly, the real Japanese spy pronounces the phrase correctly, confusing Otto.
* LockedInAFreezer: Bruce and Annie get trapped in this manner. For Annie, it's made worse by the fact that she's clad only [[Fanservice in bra and panties]] (leading to a YouMustBeCold moment).
