Yeah, still not an example. Trope is "Hidden message in foreign language that is different from what is expected in context." not "Foreign language that is a bonus because people who want to learn a foreign language can translate the completely contextually appropriate conversation they're having."

It's a bonus because of the historical in joke about Siegel, and as mentioned, what it says about the character that the Sicilian who is most associated with being The Don for The Mafia reacts by talking to his partner in Yiddish, while the Jewish partner replies in Italian. As it's one fo the first of many scenes where the two are interacting, it gives the viewers insight into their relationship. So it's a bonus for the historians, a bonus for viewers who aren't historians but want to figure out how the characters relate to each other, and it's a bonus because of WHAT language the two are using, since both are going against their culture/heritage in doing so.
