Sheriff Freddy Heflin (Stallone) eventually finds Superboy (Rapaport) hiding out in an abandoned water tower. When he goes by himself to turn Superboy in, Jack (Patrick) and Frank (Nascarella) catch them and Jack fires a gun next to Freddy's good ear, leaving him completely deaf. Freddy walks all the way to Ray Donlan's (Keitel) house and shoots all of Donlan's men. Figgs (Liotta) shows up also and saves Freddy from being shot. Freddy shoots and kills Ray. Freddy and Figgs both deliver Superboy to Lt. Moe Tilden (De Niro) who takes him away. Freddy is then criticised by the rest of the Police Department for being the man who killed Ray Donlan. He decides to stay Sheriff and his ear recovers.
Continuity mistake: The first scene with Murray Babitch driving across the George Washington Bridge from New York to New Jersey was actually filmed going the other direction. When driving from New York to New Jersey on the lower level of the bridge you enter a black tunnel first, and exit through a yellow tiled tunnel. The scene in the film starts in the yellow tiled tunnel - New Jersey to New York direction.
Ray Donlan: You know the difference between men and boys? Boys bet everything on everything! Boys think every hand is a royal flush! You play cards with a man, he knows his limits.
