That's the Frozen Man, right?... (7.13)

Dollar Bill: I've been humping my ass into the city, hour and a half in traffic, into this swanky Manhattan office, and you haven't called a single meeting because the government's frozen all the assets. So when you called this meeting, I assumed that meant it was go-time and they've finally been unfrozen.

Wags: Not yet. Still frozen like Otzi in the goddamn Alps.

Ben Kim: That's the Frozen Man, right?

Dollar Bill: I need those funds to flow like the Kancamangus Rapids. I'm ready to rock and roll on full auto right the fuck now.

Ötzi, also called the Iceman, the Similaun Man (Italian: Mummia del Similaun), the Man from Hauslabjoch, the Tyrolean Iceman, and the Hauslabjoch mummy, is the well-preserved natural mummy of a man who lived between 3400 and 3100 BCE. The mummy was found in September 1991 in the Ötztal Alps, hence the nickname "Ötzi", near Similaun mountain and Hauslabjoch on the border between Austria and Italy. He is Europe's oldest known natural human mummy, and has offered an unprecedented view of Chalcolithic (Copper Age) Europeans. His body and belongings are displayed in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy.
