Ralph Cifaretto

Played by Joe Pantoliano

"All this over some whore?"

If the mafia gave out a Mr. Congeniality Award, Ralph Cifaretto would never be in contention for it. Mr. Obnoxious, however, would be his in a walk. Sarcastic, belligerent and misogynistic ? even by wise guy standards ? Ralph is easily Tony's least favorite business associate. Despite being a very smart man (albeit one who dropped out of school in the eleventh grade), Ralph is prone to making grossly inappropriate comments at the worst possible moment.
