Well, hello there, Mr. Neff.
When Keyes approaches to speak to Neff as Neff enters work one morning, Neff asks Keyes if it has to do with the "Peterson" case. The name of the character in question is "Dietrichson," not "Peterson". However, this could be seen as Neff's try to show no interest to the case.
Opening credits are shown over a silhouette of a man on crutches, walking toward the camera.
