The following contains information about the final episode of Fargo Season 3.
In the final scene of Fargo Season 3 Varga has been detained by homeland security, and is being interviewed by Burgle. The two exchange some pleasantries, and Varga says:
No, that’s not what’s going to happen. In five minutes that door is going to open, and a man you can’t argue with will tell me I am free to go, and I’ll stand from this chair, and disappear into the world, so help me, god.
I'm certain this is a reference to another film, where a detective successfully detains the criminal, but is then told to let him go by a superior. What is the referenced film (series)?
