With no way to escape, Paige and Brody must help Eddie Mullen, the missing young author of the novel, learn to be a hero so the story can end.

Trivia:

The original title was "Charmed noir".

Phoebe: So, what do you think, Nancy Drew? Lover's quarrel?
Meaning:
Nancy Drew is the heroine of a popular mystery series for girls.

Paige: Thank you. Do I look like Lana Turner?
Meaning:
Lana Turner (February 8, 1921 - June 29, 1995) was an American actress famed early in her career for tight sweaters and smoldering sensuality and later in her career for sudsy romance films with maximum tragedy and glamorous gowns.

Kyle Brody: Right out of "The Postman Always Rings Twice". The good version.
Meaning:
"The Postman always rings twice" was one of Lana Turner's film noirs. There was a remake in 1980 it never reached the quality of the original version of 1946.

Paige: They wrote themselves in as the heroes of their own books. Like Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe.
Meaning:
Sam Spade was the leading character in the novel and movie The Maltese Falcon (1931). The original novel was written by Dashiell Hammett, and was first published as a serial in the pulp magazine Black Mask.

Philip Marlowe is a fictional private eye created by Raymond Chandler in a series of detective novels including The Big Sleep and The Long Goodbye. Marlowe's character is typical of a genre of hardboiled crime fiction that originated with Dashiell Hammett and Black Mask magazine in the 1920s where the private eye is a pessimistic and cynical observer of a corrupt society. Yet the enduring appeal of Marlowe and other "hard-boiled dicks" like Hammett's Sam Spade lies in their tarnished idealism.

Paige: The Falcon as in The Maltese Falcon?
Meaning:
"The Maltese Falcon" is a detective novel by Dashiell Hammett which was made into a quintessential film noir.
