Ari Gold is driving his car and talking to Lloyd Lee about Lloyd's wedding when a red light catches him. Ari then notices Liam in the other lane, in his car, also waiting for the green light to come up. When Ari calls out to Liam, Liam coldly exclaims "Go fuck yourself, Ari." Ari calmly suggests Liam forgive and forget, but an unmoved Liam shows Ari the middle finger and then drives off. Ari then shouts out, "Hey, Schindler! Leave no Jew behind"; a joke based on Ari being Jewish and Liam's acclaimed performance as Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist and Nazi Party member, who saved 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust.
