  • Breaking point (n.) psychology - a critical moment of personal stress, often the moment at which a psychotic break or similar occurs.
  • There may also be an allusion to the adrenaline high of Point Break.


Sinclair and Granger are on a stakeout throughout the evening/night (Sinclair tells Granger that he told him the same story 2 hours ago), they then make a bet that they get a bite before midnight, implying that midnight is getting close. Moments later they are in a car chase and the clock in the car reads 7:31, it should read much later in the evening/night.
