- 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.
- At the racetrack, Sonny is confident their horse will win until they overhear Eddie Mush cheering for the same horse. Sonny immediately rips up the betting slips and sure enough the horse is overtaken right at the finish line.
