When you're sneaking around past goons, at one point you can hear two of them referring to inventing computer games:
- "I was watching cartoons on the television and I was thinking, it would be great it you could control the cartoon, make him run around, drive a car and even shoot a gun"
- "Just how would you do that then wise guy?"
- "I dunno, I supposed you'd have a box with buttons on it you'd have to push"
In chapter 3, Vito gets mad that Derrek is only going to pay him $10 to load a box of crates. In 1945, when this mission takes place, minimum wage was only 40 cents an hour, so $10 to just to load some boxes into a truck would actually be very good pay. See more
Sorry, kid. Joe wasn't the part of our deal.
