Due to interiors being shot in Toronto, and exteriors being filmed in New York City, much attention to detail needed to be made for continuity, to make sure that portions of shots relating to the same sequences matched.
Det. Frank Keller:
What's she gonna do, shoot me? We're in a restaurant!
When Terry slams Frank against the mirror in Frank's apartment, we hear the sound of breaking glass, yet later in the scene the mirror appears intact.
Several scenes featuring Lorraine Bracco as Al Pacino's wife were cut before release and reinserted for the film television premiere. These additions were all included on the Universal Thrillers VHS edition of the film. They are as follows: 1) Frank sees a suspicious man on the street and calls for back-up from a nearby pay phone. It is revealed that this man is a personal bodyguard for a child at a nearby school. Parts of this scene were included in the original theatrical trailer. 2) The complete scene with Lorraine Bracco in which she pleads with Frank to stop bothering her and her husband. She also reveals that she is pregnant. 3) Frank comes home to his apartment and is surprised by his father, played by William Hickey, who is already in the apartment. His father tells him about an old partner who just passed away.
