  • What a good episode that was! It is like one of those things that you decide the ending. All I care about is that Phil got what he had coming!!! Phil gettin whacked and then the ride smashing his head was classic.

    • (cat jumps on table at the Satriale's hangout, to Paulie's disapproval) Walden: He was at the safe house. We brought him over. Paulie: Get him the fuck out. These are snakes with fur. The old Italians'll tell ya, you can't even put 'em around a baby. They suck the breath right out. Benny: Well, you're the only baby here, so we're ahead of the game.

    • Meadow: (explaining her desire to practice law) The state can crush the individual. Tony: New Jersey?

    • Paulie: One time at the Bing, I was alone to meet Eddy Lind. I saw the Virgin Mary. Tony: Why didn't you say somethin'? Fuck strippers—we coulda had a shrine; sold holy water in gallon jugs. We coulda made billions.

    • Paulie: "In the midst of death, we are in life." Heh. Or is it the other way around? Meadow: I think it's the other way around. Paulie: Either version, you're halfway up the ass.

    • Tony: George was good enough to broker this meetin' for us. You just gonna sit there? Little Carmine: It didn't have to be this way. Butch: We agree. It's gone too far. Phil—I don't know—he's changed. You got my word. We'll back off. Tony: My price is you help us get a location of Phil. Butch: I can't go there, but you do what you gotta do.

    • The final scene, set at Holsten's in Bloomfield, NJ, almost had to be moved somewhere else when town council and the mayor decided to deny a filming permit to The Sopranos because they felt it depicted Italian-Americans poorly. The location shoot was saved when the township's lawyer decided they actually had no say in the matter due to the zoning of the building and timing of filming.

    • Maureen Van Zandt is added to the main cast for this episode.

    • When Janice talks to Junior about Bobby's death, his response is "Ambassador Hotel," confusing Bobby's death for Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 assassination.

    • As he pulls up alongside A.J. jogging, Tony starts to hum "Gonna Fly Now", the main theme from the Rocky movies used during Rocky's jog through Philadelphia.
