  • Quotes

    • Vito: He's gonna be a vegetable, Tony—a fuckin' retard!
      Tony: No, he's gonna be fine.
      Ralph: Well, look at the bright side. He wasn't that smart to begin with!

    • Junior: This Mustang Sally's a tough kid. What if things don't go your way?
      Bobby Baccalieri, Sr.: If they don't, they don't. What the fuck? I'm dead anyway.

    • Tony: Why don't you grab us some coffee?
      Jackie Jr.: What? Are you kidding?
      Paulie: (menacing) Better yet, go to the ear, nose, and throat department. Get your hearing checked.

    • Tony: (on Bobby Baccalieri, Sr.) He's really sick?
      Junior: What do you want? He's smoking Camels since he was in short pants.
      Tony: Lung cancer? Ah, fuck! Madonn'.
      Janice: Another toothpick.

    • Vito: I may be upset, but I know how to keep my mouth shut.
      Ralphie: Unless, of course, there's a salami sandwich around.

    • Dr. Melfi: Anthony's attacks, how do they make you feel?
      Carmela: Well concerned of course, helpless. A little frustrated maybe.
      Dr. Melfi: With your inability to help him?
      Carmela: To tell the truth I was referring to your inability to help him.

    • Dr. Melfi: You're both very angry.
      Tony: (sarcastic) Yeah, you must've been at the top of your fuckin' class!

    • Carmela: You know what, Tony? Maybe you should explore your own behavior. Maybe you pass out because you're guilty over something. Maybe the fact that you stick your dick into anything with a pulse. You ever consider that as a "root cause?"

    • Carmela: After 19 years of marriage I find it very sad that we have to pay someone to teach us how to interact.

    • Tony: (to a drunk Artie) No wonder the food sucks. You're supposed to cook with the wine, Artie.
