Comic #4244

1 Quercus: I’ve loaded all the cargo onto the delivery truck.
2 Spanners: Good work Quercus. Serron says he’s received the money. You can send the truck off.
3 Spanners: He also says he has the deed to some bar. Probably some con trick.
3 Quercus: It must be valid if you say it’s a scam.
4 Spanners: What? Why?
4 Quercus: No good deed goes unrubbished.

According to Wikipedia, the origin of the phrase "No good deed goes unpunished" is unknown. It's been attributed to people from eras as different as Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) to Billy Wilder (1906-2002). I suppose in the future people might attribute it to some guy named Thomas Wildest, who was born in 2008.

For extra fun, TV Tropes has a page on the concept.
