Choosing Norm Richards for the gunman, even if you collect Richards' bag after he is killed is still a worse choice because he adds casualty expenses and misses a lot of diamonds during the actual heist, meaning even if you smash all cases you still get only about $4.5M (the maximum take is $4,946,153)

This is a reference to [[Niko Bellic]], the protagonist of GTA IV. When Lester adds to Niko "going quiet" in the end, the player could assume he retired from the crime life like Michael had, according to [[GTA IV]] canon.

*Adding to the above, Lester says, "I've been working with someone, but they're too unpredictable." He is probably referring to the [[GTA Online Protagonist]], seeing as the player can do whatever they want with their character, and GTA Online takes place before the events of GTA V.
