***Also, check the form the Mangalore is wearing. It's the "Smoke you!" guy that the police arrested earlier. The police arrested that guy because they thought he was Korben. Which was because the priest had moved the nameplate on Korben's door earlier. And the Police wanted to arrest him because Right Arm had called in a tip that he was doing something highly illegal, so that he could then claim Korben's ticket.


* There's also the scene where Korben Dallas [[BoomHeadshot headshots the Mangalore leader [[AggressiveNegotiations in the guise of negotiating]]. One gets the sense that this is something General Munro is known for.
