* PrecisionFStrike: As we all know, this is a film with ''a lot'' of swearing. However, there are a few characters who rarely do, Queenan being one of them. He veers into this territory when discussing the possibility of relieving Billy of his duties.

However, there ''is'' a BDP city cop undercover among Costello's crew, and its doubtful he limits his criminal activities to the city itself, which might be why the State Police is involved.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: The main structure of ''The Departed'' involves rivalries between city, state and federal departments of law enforcements criss-crossing each other. This was absent in the original Hong Kong films because it's a feature of American police rather than Hong Kong police.
