If these chinks wanna nuke Taiwan anytime in this century, they better shape up and show me $1 million dollars! What we generally do - in this country - is one guy brings the items, and the other guy pays him. "No tickee, no laundry"!
(at around 35 mins) After Mr. French breaks and tears off Costigan's cast, the arm is naked with a small amount of bandage in the palm which Costigan then tosses aside. After a brief cut to Mr. French watching as Costello grasps and positions the bare arm, it is again covered in white gauze bandage throughout Costello "beating" it with the boot and the end of the scene.
The title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 20 minutes into the movie.
