Research notes

  • At one point, inside the C-130, Hawke calls Else Manheim "Freida". He doesn't know her real name so Freida might have been the first name of her Nurse Simmons persona.
  • Hawke knows Moore as "Peter" but Marella mentions him as "Patrick" to Dominic. Not like her to make these mistakes!
