About 8 minutes in, just before Tommy (Steve Buscemi) drives up to the garage where he has dialogue with Johnny the mechanic (John Ventimiglia) about his car's problem, he passes a parking lot. Walking towards the lot are three men wearing dark suits walking together in the distance. It was originally thought of as Buscemi's homage to his first big movie role, Reservoir Dogs (1992), but when asked, Buscemi said it was just a coincidence.
Shot over a period of 24 days.
