Homage: Principally GoodFellas (Martin Scorsese, 1990), in which a young boy is employed by the Mob as their messenger (the sequence when Bart falls down the steps into the cellar club is very similar) - but also The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972). Bart sings Frank Sinatra's Witchcraft in the kitchen.
