- Young Calogero's confessional.
Priest: Wait. Can you back up a bit?
Young C: I ate meat on Friday once?
Priest: Not that one. Back up a little more.
Young C: About witnessing a murder?
Priest: Yeah, that's the one. Do you realize what you said?
Young C: It was only once!
- In the opening narration Calogero talks about how at night you could hear the sounds of young Italian men wooing their women - cue a man drving slowly alongside his wife/girlfriend shouting "Honey, will you just get in the fucking car?!"
- As Sonny trains Calogero to play craps, he keeps sending his cronies, one by one, into the single-stall bathroom so as to clear the room of bad luck and distractions. The scene almost plays like something out of a slapstick comedy; as Calogero keeps throwing the dice, the guys crammed inside the bathroom wriggle around uncomfortably to peek out and see if they can finally escape their claustrophobic confines.
