Trivia: The helicopter from which Hunsacker is shot by Mister Joshua is FAA registry number N230CA, meaning it's the same Bell JetRanger wearing a POLICE paint scheme that is shot down towards the end of the movie 'Blue Thunder'.



Trivia: In the scene where Danny Glover and Mel Gibson are intervewing the kids who also saw the hookers house blow up, one of the kids has an orange hat on with a black "B" on it. That is the hat for the younger age groups of a summer baseball league in NYC called the "Bonnies." I know this for a fact because I played for the organization my whole life. Why would a kid in LA be wearing the hat? Only interesting to people from NYC, I guess.

Martin Riggs: You want me to drive?
Roger Murtaugh: No, you're supposed to be suicidal, remember? I'LL drive.
Martin Riggs: Anybody who drives around in this town IS suicidal.



Riggs handcuffs himself to the depressed businessman. They jump off the building but they're not handcuffed to each other anymore. They used plastic cuffs which could separate during the stunt in case anything went wrong. They break just as they jump, so they grab each other's hands to stay in contact. After they land the cuffs are attached again.
