Plot hole: Where do the flyers come from that are in the bags that are carried out of the vault and into the van? Danny and Linus couldn't have taken them down there and there is no room with the Chinese man. They are carried out to the van before the SWAT team appears, which means they'd have to have been in the vault to start with? In the commentary by Steven Soderbergh he acknowledges that there's no explanation. (01:35:05)

Trivia: Don Cheadle's billing/crediting in the movie was of significant dispute. Cheadle wanted to be mentioned above the title at the end of the movie - "pre title credits" - as a featured actor, along with Clooney, Pitt, and Damon, as opposed to being mentioned after the credits with the remaining cast members. His ask was refused by the director, and in response to that refusal, Cheadle said that he didn't want to be mentioned anywhere in the credits if he couldn't be granted pre-title credits. Cheadle's ask was granted in both Oceans 12 and Oceans 13, and he is mentioned before the title at the end of each movie.

Question: Does anyone know what Rusty is referencing with his "A Boskie, a Jim Brown..." speech when he and Danny are getting the blue prints for the vault?

Answer: The implication, from the context of the full conversation, is that these are all names for specific types of cons. The Boesky, for example, may refer to Ivan Boesky, a Wall Street trader who served a prison sentence for an insider dealing scam. A Boesky is therefore an inside man claiming to be a wealthy bankroller. A Jim Brown is the confrontation between Linus and Frank, Miss Daisy is the getaway vehicle, two Jethros are the Malloy twins, a Leon Spinks is the disrupted boxing match, and an Ella Fitzgerald refers to the looped tape.
