  • Excellent episode any way you slice it.

    I liked when Christopher unknowingly insulted Favrau by disparaging his movie on acting. It was great when he was gleefully roughhousing with Favrau with the gun, or brandishing the gun to emphasize his point, especially when he pointed it at Favrau's head. It was obvious Christopher was in a good mood after successfully getting it on with the D-girl, and so was relaxed and playful when he came visiting Favrau. And the fear Favrau displayed when he realized he was dealing with a real mob guy who most likely had no qualms about killing. There was great chemistry between Christopher and the girl, and I liked how Adriana pressured Christopher with hints of marriage. And then the girl silently stealing away with Christopher confessing he really liked her. Michael Imperioli should have his own series! He's great at young love and poignancy, displaying a genuine affection for Adriana, yet also easily swayed by temptation. Very relatable. Such quality story-telling, superior acting, great dialog, most of all, IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY!moreless

    D-girl was an excellent story. First off Christopher goes to a set of a movie and tells the lady to call the other lady a buchiach meaning c*nt (i got a laugh in that conversation. AJ smoking marijuana during his confirmation and then Puss talks to him was a family moment. But the part that really got to me was Big P*ssy in the bathroom crying, he doesn't want to work for the feds (well that's how i saw it). Big P*ssy has a fight with the feds for being wired for AJ's confirmation was a sad moment. The rest of the story was great and also sad like when christopher calls Amy a d-girl but i thought she deserved it for publishing the story about the lady and chritopher's friend.moreless
  • One of the best of the second season.

    One thing with the Sopranos is there is innovated writing in the storyline. In this episode I like they way they seamlessly blended the real life with the show's characters. The appearances of Jon Favreau, Sandra Bernhard and Janeane Garofalo portraying themselves was great. Jon Favreau filming a Mob story was even better. I like that Christopher takes Jon and his assistance around town and shows them the ropes and some of the terminology. In all of Tony's power there is one thing he can't control, that is his son. AJ does a lot of things to get himself into trouble. In all this episode was very informative and very entertaining.moreless

    I cant figure out Christopher's character. He just seems to have some episode all to himself. If there ever was a character that I could find myself liking enough to not have Tony be in a scene it would be one with Christopher in it. The episode had a lot to do with what Chris wants right now. Does he want to continue with the script writing that he seemed to give up a few episodes ago or does he still want to be with Tony and the gang. There wasn't a whole lot as far as Tonys mob as far as this episode goes, but Christopher kept the mob kind of feeling to the episode in all of his scenes with John and the "D-Girl". The scenes with Anthony Jr in them were kind of slow for me. I didnt mind the scenes when Tony would yell at him over things, but when he went to see his grandmother in the hospital I wonder the importance of that scene. Again Tonys mom goes against his wishes and tells Anthony Jr things she shouldnt, it just came across as boring. Tony also visiting with his theoropist wasnt as exciting in this episode either. Christopher certainly stole the show away.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Christopher: Let that one (points to Sandra Bernhard) call that one (points to Janeane Garofalo) "buchiach."
      Janeane Garofalo: That sounds more interesting.
      Director: Uh, buch— what?
      Christopher: Buchiach. (motions to Sandra) If she's from Brooklyn...
      Janeane Garofalo: That sounds okay.
      Jon Favreau: Okay, let's roll. What does it mean?
      Christopher: Cunt.
      Jon Favreau: Cunt—I like that.

    • Christopher: Swingers? He can suck my dick; that swings, too.

    • Tony: (to AJ on Carmela) She knows that even if God is dead, you're still going to kiss his ass.

    • Carmela: What kind of animal smokes marijuana at his own confirmation?
      A.J.: I don't know.
      Carmela: Be a good Catholic for fifteen fucking minutes; is that so much to ask?!

    • Dr. Melfi: It sounds to me like Anthony Jr. may have stumbled onto existentialism.
      Tony: Fucking Internet.

    • Tony: (on AJ) He tells me he's got no purpose.
      Dr. Melfi: And how did you answer him?
      Tony: I told him that it costs 150 grand to bring him up so far, so if he's got no purpose I want a fucking refund.

    • Carmela: You could have killed those girls.
      A.J.: Now that would have been interesting.
      Carmela: What? What did you just say?
      A.J.: Death just shows the ultimate absurdity of life.
      Tony: What is this? Are you trying to get me to lose my temper? Cause I'm about to put you through that Goddamn window.
      A.J.: See? That's what I mean. Life is absurd.
      Carmela: Don't say that! God forgive you.
      A.J.: There is no God.

    • Carmela: You stole my car? Where is the trust in this house?
      AJ: When I get confirmed I'm going to be a man. So how come I can't drive?
      Tony: You really want to get into this? Who was that man we had to pick up at camp last year for bed wetting?

    • Livia: Why does everything have to have a purpose? The world is a jungle and if you want my advice Anthony, don't expect happiness. You won't get it. People let you down and I'm not naming any names but in the end you die in your own arms.
      A.J.: You mean alone.
      Livia: It's all a big nothing. What makes you think you're so special?

    • A.J.: There is no God.
      Carmela and Tony: Hey!!

    • Livia: I know your father doesn't let you come down here.
      A.J.: That's not true. He just doesn't want us to talk about you in the house.
      Livia: He can go shit in his hat.

    • Dr. Melfi: (to Tony) In your family, even motherhood is up for debate.

    • Tony: Well, when you're married you'll understand the importance of fresh produce.

  • NOTES (3)

    • The German episode title is "Patenschaften", meaning "Sponsorships".

    • Music in this episode:
      "Caught My Mind" by Pushmonkey; "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac; "Thievery Corporation" by Schoalin Satellite; "Swing Town" by The Steve Miller Band; "Tasty Pudding" by Chet Baker; "Vedi, Maria" by Emma Shapplin; "Voulez-Vous?" by Arling & Cameron

    • What's a D-Girl?

      The "D" stands for "development." In the world of filmmaking, a development girl is someone who occupies a low rung on the power ladder. Her job would be to perform low-level tasks like reading scripts. In the episode of the same name, the reason Amy is so insulted when Christopher calls her a d-girl is that she feels her position as Vice President of Jon Favreau's production company makes her a player.
