In the interior scene, Danny escapes the mob by diving through an external window in the Tate's front hall to the right of the front door, yet the external shots of the Tate's house show that there is a huge wing of the house located there making it physically impossible for there to be any external windows along that wall.

Danny can't bring himself to kill Burt,and decides to hide out from the Mob,who'll try to kill him in retaliation.While he's packing,he has a heartfelt talk with little brother Jodie,whom he's always believed was not really gay,only a practical joker.Since Jodie will soon go in for his sex-change operation,he finally convinces his big brother that he's really a homosexual,and the scene concludes with a warm embrace between them.Danny tries to convince his worried mother that he's been chosen to go off spying,later returning in disguise as a postman,only to be shot at during a family get-together at the Tates.When Bob calls Benson Sambo,the butler warns him,"one more word,and he goes into the fireplace." Once the shooting starts,the dummy claims to have been hit!
