So the hitman just happens to be looking through his scope...

right in the exact spot that O'Niel just happens to drop a piece from the greenhouse?

Way too much of a coincidence to believe.

Damn I'm good.


No, O'Neil knew that somebody was probably still in the greenhouse. The dropped panel provided the moving shadow that the trigger-happy guy shot at to confirm it.

Even in the future, the old hat-on-a-stick tactic still works.


I always found that scene amusing. Dumbest hitman to ever live. He's gonna fire at a random falling object outside the greenhouse, which is obviously not a man, and in the process compromise the environment and get sucked out into space. What a pro.
