* ImpersonatingAnOfficer: Welles poses as a government investigator to interview the girl's mother. As he's working for a highly paying client, I guess he thinks it's worth the risk. Toward the end of the movie, he claims to be a police officer when ringing around the hospitals [[spoiler:looking for the man he stabbed]], but by that stage Welles is so personally involved in the case that he doesn't care about the legality.
