In the movie there is a quote from a waltz from "Rosenkavalier": "Ohne mich, ohne mich jeder Tag Dir zu bang ..." ("Without me, every day a misery ...") that features in the 2nd act (sung by Baron Ochs). On my recording, it is track 8 - "Wird kommen über Nacht" ("It'll happen overnight"). The waltz then reappears severeal times in the opera.
In the movie, the melody is quoted after Adrian Grenier's "Get in" - crossing the bridge - "Say aaaah" - until entering the bridge's "mouth" (ca. 25 seconds). The quote does not appear in the "Rouge City"-track on the commercial release.
Hope this helps.
