** If he spots six dollars for seven people it's not magic to realize one didn't tip and they did agreed on one dollar each before Joe went paying.

** The plan went smoothly until someone pressed the silent alarm. If that hadn't happened and the street cops showed up, the gang would have gone out and either been quietly arrested, or the cops would have followed them to the warehouse and arrested them there. Then Blonde started shooting and, as Pink notes, everyone else shot their way out.

** Pretty straightforward film shorthand. The character Freddie is creating as Orange is married (or at least wears a wedding ring). Freddie is not, which is why he keeps the ring in a jar rather than wearing it himself. The fact that he's not accustomed to wearing a ring all the time (as a married man would) is shown when he has to remember to put it on before he goes to his meeting.

** It's made pretty clear that Mike is a police informant who knows Joe's business. Most likely, if Hollywood mafia depiction is correct, he worked for Joe until he was busted for something and the police offered him a deal to become an informant.

*** Remember that multiple people from the jewelry store, including several police officers, are dead at this point from being shot as part of an armed robbery gone bad. This means everyone in the crew could be charged with Felony Murder, a death-penalty offense (most Felony Murder statutes state that everyone involved in the underlying crime is responsible for any and all deaths that occur during its commission or aftermath). Why leave someone alive who knows who they are?


Added DiffLines:

** Let's say White alone was caught. Joe and Eddie could "lawyer up" and refuse to say anything, and the cops would have no evidence other than White's uncorroborated word that Joe and Eddie were involved. The cops couldn't arrest Pink or Blonde and lean on them because White would have no idea who they were. That's why Pink was so freaked out about Orange having even partial information about White: If Orange (who Pink didn't know was an informant) was caught by the police and could identify White, their combined testimony would be enough to bring charges against Joe and Eddie, who might then give up Pink to the cops as part of a deal.

** RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic. This troper has been in several discussions, debates, and arguments where both himself and the other party will bring up a point/counter point that wasn't brought up to counter specifically because we had it prepared in our heads ahead of time, thought it sounded good/convincing, and felt like making the point even though the set up wasn't there.

* They made a pretty big deal about the colour-coded names thing, but was it really so important? They all knew Joe and Eddie who would have been the main targets of an investigation, and conversely, Joe and Eddie knew them all...

** Yep. He flat out says to Pink, Blond and White that they're going to have to kill Nash, since he's seen their faces.
