Trivia: When Doug just finishes cooking his new dart, he gets interrupted by someone knocking on the door, and says "Woolter and Jesse are here." This is a reference to Breaking Bad, where the two lead characters run a meth lab, and are named Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. (01:25:10)


Trivia: It is revealed in the special features of the Blu Ray that there was a cut scene during the briefing at the police station, in this scene Chief Bogo tells the officers 'Real cops suck it up, they are tough and stay tough' Now this possibly makes a small error continuity make sense, during this scene in the final film we see the clock in the background go from 8:30 to 8:33 in less than three minutes. It is very likely that this scene would have taken place at this time, making the sudden time skip not seem so obvious.
