|Behind the Scenes|
Mahaffey is a gambling addict who has borrowed money from Hesh Rabkin and Tony Soprano to fuel his habit. He works for USA HMO, a medical insurance company. Soprano and Christopher Moltisanti spot Mahaffey outside the offices of USA HMO. He flees, kicking Christopher to get away. Soprano pursues Mahaffey in his car and knocks him down. He breaks his hip but nevertheless continues to beat him up and demand payment.
Soprano later sends Salvatore Bonpensiero and Hesh Rabkin to force Mahaffey into funding fraudulent medical claims. They take him out to a bridge and implicitly threaten him and he agrees to co-operate.
