You take it from here, Slugger.
In the beginning of the movie in the first bar scene after Terry has set-up Joey Doyle, when 'Skins', the man from 'Greenpoint', is asked by Johnny Friendly if he "handled the sheet metal", Skins says, "yes, it was easy, here's 45 Bills" (meaning $4,500.). Friendly gives the money to Terry's brother, Charlie the Gent', to count. After he does Charlie erroneously tell Friendly the total is $2673.00, i.e., the amount 'Big Mac' says is the total of Friendly's cut from the day's shape-up of the 813 Union members that worked that day, instead of $4500.
