What Michelle was smuggling in wasn't drugs but this small electronic trigger device that these Arabs want. The device is inside this little Lady Liberty statue that is in Michelle's suitcase. Harrison Ford and the Arabs make the trade: Ford's wife for the trigger device. The Arabs hand over Ford's wife and Michelle is about to hand them the device when she asks them for her money. There's a struggle and these two agents (the ones who were interrogating Michelle) show up to help. There's an exchange of bullets, Ford fights with one of the Arabs and before he is gunned down, he (the Arab guy) shoots Michelle. Before dying, she slips the trigger device in Harrison Ford's pocket. He asks the two agents "this is what you're looking for?" and throws the device in a river.


Continuity mistake: When Harrison Ford is on the rooftop and the suitcase accidentally opens, the Statue of Liberty goes flying off the rooftop and on to the ground, several stories down. In the next shot, the little statue is perched at the edge of the rooftop.
