In The Sopranos, the episode Marco Polo, mob bosses Tony Soprano and Johnny Sack discuss business and faun over Johnny’s new Maserati. In an ironic showcase of the phrase ‘crime doesn’t pay’, just before the duo drive off there is a close up shot of Sal Vitro the gardener, who has to work Johnny’s lawn for free, contrasting the luxurious life of a crime boss with that of a working man.
Sal is one of the most screwed over characters in the show – he’s worked the neighborhood for decades, then gets his arms broken, loses the neighborhood. He reaches out to Paulie who screws him over plus makes him do lawns for free, he even gets arrested by the feds during the raid on Johnny’s house.
