The Off Broadway Affair - S3-E10

Trivia: When Napoleon informs Mr. Waverly that Illya once played the French horn, and Illya corrects him that it was the English horn, Napoleon wonders what the difference is. There is actually quite a difference: the French horn is a member of the brass family, a relative of trumpets and trombones, and the English horn is a member of the woodwind family, a relative of oboes and clarinets.

Napoleon Solo: My name is Napoleon Solo. I'm an enforcement agent in Section Two here. That's operations and enforcement.

The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Question: Why would Solo compare the descending elevator to an Eaton's department store, when these only existed in Canada?

Answer: He must have ridden in an Eaton's store elevator while he was in Canada at some point. For some reason, this elevator reminds him of it. The show's original concept had Solo being a Canadian, so this may be a minor nod to that fact.
