Subject:        Enigma Shakespeare Reference

In the film Enigma (2001),  http://us.imdb.com/Title?0157583 screenplay
by Tom Stoppard, there is a small Shakespeare reference.  In the middle
of a speech given by the codebreakers manager, Skynner, a codebreaker
says"Shakespeare coming up" and then Skynner says "Out of this / nettle,
danger, we pluck this flower, safety."

Hotspur and Henry IV, Part One are not mentioned.

The villain's name is 'Puck' Pukowski.
