"Corky" Caporale is an associate of Christopher Moltisanti and a heroin addict. Christopher enlisted him to accommodate the Italian hitmen provided to Tony for the hit on Rusty Millio. Corky was chosen primarily because he speaks Italian and would therefore be able to communicate effectively with the hitmen. Christopher paid him for the job with heroin. Corky performed well, delivering weapons and instructions at a remote spot without revealing much about himself, and the hit went smoothly. Christopher delivered the second half of Corky's payment at the Feast of St. Elzear and included more heroin as a substitute for some of the money. Corky injected the drug in Christopher' car, which initially prompted Christopher to encourage him to get into rehab. However, Christopher was eventually tempted into joining him.
In 2007, in the episode "The Blue Comet," now after Christopher's death, the Soprano Family used Corky again through Patsy Parisi. The target this time was Phil Leotardo, but Corky was not as successful. The hit was botched badly and Yaryna, Phil's housemaid and mistress, and her elderly father, who looked remarkably like Phil, are killed instead. When Corky heard from the hitmen that the man spoke Ukrainian to his daughter, he mumbled "whatever." However, he did ask Patsy Parisi if Phil spoke Ukrainian.
