Trivia: Whenever the mobsters in the Sopranos pay they almost always take a wad of cash out of their pocket and pull off the top 3-4 bills and hand it over. If Tony is paying for a pizza he pulls off 3-4 bills. If he's bribing someone he pulls off 3-4 bills. No matter what the amount is for that particular situation, it's always covered with the top 3-4 bills of the cash wad.
Trivia: This was Steven Van Zandt's first acting job. He was previously a guitarist with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. Interestingly, in the season 5 episode "Long Term Parking," Chris Moltisanti turns up late to a meeting, and comments ". . . the highway was jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive." This line comes from Springsteen's song "Born to Run."
