* EvenEvilHasStandards: Vinnie's given reason for why he's testifying. He claims he's actually getting a pretty crappy deal out of the whole thing but he has to do what's right. Whether this is how he actually feels (and felt originally) or if it's just him laying it on for the jury is probably deliberately ambiguous.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: When Vinnie's given reason for why put on the stand, the cross examination tries to discredit him by pointing out all the perks of being in Witness Protection. Vinnie then continues by pointing out he also never gets to see his parents or friends again and that his wife left him. He finishes by saying it's true that he's testifying. He claims only saying these things because of the government deal -- but he gave his word that he'd tell the truth, and that's what he's actually getting a pretty crappy deal out of the whole thing but he has to do what's right. Whether this is how he actually feels (and felt originally) or if it's just him laying it on for the jury is probably deliberately ambiguous.doing.

When Vinnie gets into trouble for committing some local crime, he gets arrested by policewoman Hannah Stubbs (Cusack), who is not at all happy that someone like him is being under the watch of Barney and vents at the FBI agent when they first meet. The reason for all of Hannah's frustration is because she's a divorced mom stuck raising her two sons.
