  • Trivia

    • Tony really couldn't have smashed a hole all the way through AJ's front windshield the way he did. Windshields are layered with unbreakable glass/plastic to prevent exactly such a thing from happening.

  • Quotes

    • Carmela: I found out that our son, the liar, had been fired... three weeks ago.
      Tony: From Blockbuster? (to A.J.) How the fuck you do that? They got rhesus monkeys working as managers over there!

    • Vito: I could probably get a letter from my doctor.
      Tony: A note from your doctor saying you don't like to suck cock?

    • Patty Leotardo: Father put it so well last week. "There's nothing gay about hell," he said.

    • Silvio: That's the thing with the gays—still living in the closet. Makes them devious.

    • Carmela: You're not going to go out with him, are you? He's, like, 26 years old.
      Rosalie: Duh!

    • Silvio: Make sure you clean that shit off her tit!

    • A.J.: Maybe I care about the environment. That ever occur to you? Wallace and Gromit—that weighed, like, fifty pounds. How many trees gave their lives for that, and it just goes to the dump?

    • Tony: I couldn't hit [A.J.] if I wanted to. He's so fuckin' little. It's Carmela's side of the family; they're small people. Her father—you could knock him over with a fuckin' feather.

    • Phil: (to Vito) You're a fucking disgrace.

    • Vito: It was complicated. I was working things out.
      Tony: I'm sure it gets complicated when you're taking it up your fag ass!
