This pays off when she's able to forge a personal connection with one of the detectives assisting her--asking about the welfare of his wife and children--leading him to put in the extra effort to look after her. Later in the film, as she ventures into an inner-city neighborhood, her perfect Spanish similarly impresses the local hoodlums.
