When Sadie tells Mae that the surest place to find Duffy is at "Sloppy Moe's" - that is undoubtedly a reference to the original Sloppy Joe's Bar in Old Havana, Cuba. Financially devastated by the 1959 revolution and finally closed by a fire in the 1960's, it has been restored and reopened in 2013. See more

I want you to do a dance. You know, show 'em somthin'.
Is it a benefit?
Yeah, it's a benefit.

Say, listen, when I finish here at midnight, after nine shows a day, I can't even shake my little finger.
