Tom Fox: He doesn't have a passport.
Carl Hanratty: For the last six months, he's gone to Harvard and Berkeley. I'm betting he can get a passport.

On such a large press the checks would be printed several up on a large sheet of paper, to be cut down after printing is completed. (01:53:10)

Trivia: In case anyone was wondering, Frank was telling the truth when he said he passed the Bar Exam by studying. He studied for three weeks and took it. He did, however, fail the first two times. But since you were allowed to take it as many times as possible, he just used process of elimination till he passed, and third time was a charm.

Question: I may have missed this, but why does Frank tear the labels off bottles?

Answer: He does it so he will have things in his wallet. As he has no identity of his own and steals or creates others, filling his wallet with labels is fulfilling a subconscious desire to be normal and have an identity.
