Three actors and two actresses that appeared In Trees Lounge (1996), also appeared in Goodfellas (1990), Suzanne Shepherd, Debi Mazar, Kevin Corrigan, Michael Imperioli, and Samuel L. Jackson.
You're a weak man.
Tommy: Yeah, I know. That's why I drink it straight. The ice cubes are too heavy.
During the opening credits, an old man at the bar orders a large glass of liquor, filled with ice. In the next shot, there's no ice in the glass. However, this is a deliberate technique by the director to indicate the passing of time at Trees Lounge.
