Sydney is hiding in the air vents and praying that Cole’s bullets will not hit her. She has no room to move and is surely going to be shot when…Jack walks into the vault room and surrenders.

Episode Quotes
McKenas Cole: (hasn't heard from Chen) I feel like I'm a mom at the mall! He said he was going down to the sub-basement. I don't know if his walkie's not working, if he's on a coffee break--

McKenas Cole: (to Sydney) I know you didn't wanna kiss me, but when I was taking a hit off that bottle before, I backwashed in it. I mean, like, really big-time.

McKenas Cole: (to Sydney) See, the problem with you kickboxers, ain't none of y'all can take a punch! (punches her)

Sydney: (to McKenas Cole) I think you're right – taking a punch is something I gotta learn how to do. (kicks him)

Marshall: (holding Sloane's severed finger) Hey, Sloane gave me the finger.

Cultural References
Haladki: (answering the phone) Extraction Teams "R" Us?

This is obviously a pun on "Toys R US," the massive toy store chain.

Visual: Ship named "Alba Varden"

The name of the ship where Will gets the envelope is the "Alba Varden". This is an in-joke reference to the same ship with the same name in the movie Lethal Weapon 2.

Will: (holding a black wig) I looked like Gabe Kaplan.

Gabriel Kaplan, a.k.a. Gabe Kaplan, is an actor best known for his part as Gabe Kotter in Welcome Back, Kotter, a hit sitcom of the 70's which is why Kelly didn't know whom Will was talking about.
