* Foreshadowing: When Snaps mentions that he knows about Lisa's "lover" she says she thought he left her for good. Since Anthony never mentioned anything about leaving, (and even if he did, he wouldn’t have been there in the beginning of the movie) this foreshadows, that not just that Lisa’s lover is someone else, (namely Oscar) but also that he isn’t in the country anymore.

-->'''Aldo”” The Boss don’t get up before 9:00 a.m. Even the feds know that!
* BlatantLies: According to Five Spot, his job is an „Honourable Profession” Yeah, right! Listening to other people’s private conversation is definitely honourable.

-->'''Snaps''': A bag just like this one.

A screwball farce written by Claude Magnier as a play about an industrialist trying to get back the money one of his employees stole and the resulting complications. It was made into a French film (starring the great Creator/LouisDeFunes, who also starred in the play countless times) in 1967 that he co-wrote. Then in 1991 he updated the play to be about a mobster trying to go straight, adding an extra complication to the plot. This was then made into an American film by director Creator/JohnLandis, starring SylvesterStallone and TimCurry, among several character actors.
