* GreaterScopeVillain: After Mickey refuses to throw the first fight, Brick Top is seen talking to a pair of men who go unnamed. As ruthless, violent, and terrifying Brick Top is, he was clearly uneasy about these men being angry with him, and quickly began apologizing to them and promising that he would make it up to them. Considering that Brick Top has no compunctions against ordering murders in front of witnesses, one can only shudder to think how awful someone must be to make Brick Top uneasy around them.
** Jack The All Seeing Eye and Salt Peter, high-level London gangsters who "make Brick Top look like a skirt clinging thumb sucker".

The film opens with Frankie "Four Fingers" (Creator/BenicioDelToro) stealing a huge 86 karat diamond in Antwerp. With the help of a section of [[TheMafiya the Russian Mob]] that his boss is working with, Frankie is able to smuggle the diamond onto a plane, but his gun is taken by the Russians so as to not cause problems. Frankie is advised to see Boris (Rade Šerbedžija), a local fence in London, if he wants a new gun. The Russian Gangster who took Frankie's gun, (who is actually Boris' brother) and Boris immediately begin conspiring on how to steal the diamond from Frankie before Frankie heads back home to America, without the deed leading back to them.

** Turkish definitely has some pretty snarky and snide things to say about Tommy, but in his voice-over admits that he considers him like a younger brother. The two are pretty much inseparable throughout the film.

* SkewedPriorities: While Rosebud is bleeding profusely, Avi is screaming at Doug to find him a ''Jewish'' doctor.
** Although, Avi being who he is, it was probably meant as as sign of comfort.

** Note that given the film's retro atmosphere, (and Tony's generally laid-back attitude) "disco biscuits" is probably used here in its old 70s sense (Quaaludes, a downer) instead of its modern one (MDMA, an upper).
