Scut often sided with Lance and the group and accepted newcomer Donny Chavez into the workplace. He enjoyed Lance's persistent harassment to a silent Pete Castiligione, who worked alone and endlessly. One evening, Scut and his men invited Chavez to their night for drinks, having him pay for it.
Sometime the next day, Scut received a workplace injury, a beam crushing his right arm. Because of his absence, Lance and Paulie turned to Chavez to substitute him in their robbery at Linello's.
