When the camera had the closeup on Hop Sing after Joe found him, Hop Sing's eyes were clearly red from crying. That's something to be able to work himself up like that.

I was reading an article about "best souvenirs" and came across this mention of "chops":
The Chinese have used seals colloquially known as chops to sign artwork and documents since the Shang dynasty (about 1600 to 1046 BC) — think of the square red mark in the corner of Chinese paintings. You can purchase chops, made of stone found in China, in many markets. Pick out a piece you like, and the merchant will carve the characters you choose into the bottom. Chops are a few inches tall and are packed in silk gift boxes, sometimes with a container of red paste.

I also found this blog entry from 2013 about a woman in Taiwan - she had to get a chop (stamp) created with her name in order to open a bank account:

Wow! That's really interesting. Fingerprints [ or chops] go back many centuries. That's just what Hop Sing explains in The Mark Of Guilt. :hopsing1 :very happy
