  • In NCIS pilot episode "Yankee White" which takes place on Air Force One; Mark Harmon plays Special Agent Gibbs (no relation to the corrupt Secret Service Agent Gibbs) makes numerous references to the movie even pointing out that the terrorists copied the plot from the movie.  It's a sort of in-joke because they reused the exact same sets utilized for the film.
