Hammer is jogging in the park when a model plane pursues him. He ducks for cover and then shoots it down. Two nearby women are disappointed that he's shot down their remote-control plane. A familiar looking bald Englishman walks by, and Hammer gets back on track with his jogging. He crosses the road and a limousine almost runs him over. The driver apologizes when he realizes Hammer is an officer. A man inside makes a break for it and his captors say they need him alive so they'll find him later...Read the full recap
Doreau: Captain, I think we can get the professor to Springfield without using a plane. We'll use an alternative form of transportation that no one ever uses any more.
Hammer: That's a good idea, Doreau. We'll take a stagecoach. I'll ride shotgun.
Hammer: I'm not afraid of anything - except world peace.
Doreau: I hate to think I'm sharing my room with a cow.
Hammer: Yeah, well, I thought I'd never do it again.
Doreau: What do you mean, again?
Hammer: I told you, I was married.
Vronsky: I have claustrophobia. I have spent once ten years in cramped little room like this.
Hammer: What, were you in a prison, huh?
Vronsky: No, luxury condo in Moscow.
Vronsky: You will enjoy chess. It's good for nerves.
Hammer: When I became a cop, I had my nerves removed.
Vronsky: What is that?
Hammer: It's a target. What, you've never saw a target before?
Vronsky: Oh, in Russia we practice by shooting at dissidents.
Hammer: Uh, well, here we call them "liberals."
Hammer: I'm going to catch that Commie and make him play Russian Roulette the hard way, with a bullet in every chamber.
The opening sequence parodies North by Northwest (1959), where Cary Grant is chased by a crop duster. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, who makes a cameo as a frustrated would-be bus passenger much as a lookalike does here.
