My 10 Favorite Carmine Lupertazzi Jr. Quotes on The Sopranos

While we didn’t meet Little Carmine until season 4 of The Sopranos, he stood out for a few different reasons. He was never quite as bloodthirsty as the others, preferring a more hands-off leadership style. But most importantly, for the purposes of this post, those lines he delivered were priceless! On that note, here are my 10 favorite Little Carmine Lupertazzi, Jr. quotes on The Sopranos.
