The audio played back in the courtroom is not the same as the conversation that took place earlier in the film. Notably, John Gotti used the phrase "physically sick" during the earlier conversation, but it does not appear when the tape is played back. Also when Gotti asks who "did the work?" Frankie says "Sammy," but on the tape, Frankie says "Fucking Sammy" which Gotti repeats.
