Another notable improvisation in the film was John Cazale's answer to Al Pacino's question of where in the world he'd like to fly to.
Sal (John Cazale) the other bank robbery was interesting as we never really learn much about him, and yet I could tell he had his own back story, which we learn only a little about, which keeps him a mystery.
