Question: When Carter and Lee get the Chinese food after singing "War", Carter is arguing with the Chinese guy. The Chinese guy starts yelling at Carter in Chinese. What's he saying?
Question: When Carter goes to pick up Lee at the airport he is parked next to the terminal. I know this movie is pre-9/11 but is it actually possible or a non-airport employee to drive so close to the runway? Even allowing for the fact Carter is a cop, it still seems strange. But I'm no expert in airport protocol so I'm not listing as a mistake as it may well be possible.
Question: When Inspector Lee is in the Foo Chow Restaurant, why is the waitress's necklace so important? In a later shot, Lee grabs the necklace from the waitress and runs. Was that Soo Yung's necklace?
Question: In the card room, in the back of the bar, what exactly does Carter say after telling his cousin that the only reason he hasn't busted him is because he is his cousin?
Lee: Ah! Beach Boys.
Carter: Oh, hell no! You didn't just touch my goddamn radio.
Lee: The Beach Boys are great American music.
Carter: The Beach Boys gonna get you a great ass whuppin'. Don't you ever touch a black man's radio, boy! You can do that in China but you can get your ass killed out here, man.
Trivia: Towards the end, where Soo Yun is reunited with her father outside of the museum, there is a news van in the background. The call letters on the van start with W, which is typically reserved for television and radio stations in the eastern U.S. with few exceptions. In the western U.S. of course, the calls typically start with a K. There is no "W" station currently broadcasting in Los Angeles.
