- "The Sicilian backup team a no show, of course. So I dropped in through the skylight, used up my whole mag and I hit the final guy in the chest with a flare gun. Boy, you should've seen the look on his face when that thing went off. Oh, man, he didn't know what hit him. Now that's what I call in-flight entertainment."
- ―John Garrett to Grant Ward
John Garrett was assigned on an undercover mission in Sicily, getting involved in a gunfire without backup from the Sicilian team. Garrett dropped through a skylight and shot every enemy, running out of ammo before killing the final opponent. Garrett used a flare gun as an improvised weapon, surprising the enemy once the flare hit his chest.
Over the years, this mission became one of the stories that Garrett usually told about his field missions. Phil Coulson, who was also present during the whole mission, told him that it didn't occurred as Garrett told, as Garrett changed some of the events to make a better story.
