    9.0
    A great episode that opens a lot of doors for next week’s season extended season finale. I found the most shocking and vulgar part of the episode was when Paulie smothered an old woman to with a pillow for her money (since he was having a hard time earning.) It was also funny to see the surprised and scared look on Paulie’s face when he confronted Carmine at a party about Johnny Sack talking about him, and he had no idea what Paulie was talking about. The episode kind of moved slow in the middle, though, but I was really surprised when Furio disappeared into Naples. I thought one of the episode’s only flaws was that it spent too much time on Carmela’s love fantasy with Furio. Grade: A-

    • Silvio: You have any idea what Albert kicked up last week?
      Paulie: Fuck that fuckin' parakeet. I got a relationship with Tony Albert he'll never have—no matter how far he sticks his tongue up Tony's ass.

    • Tony: It must be a gay book. Billy Budd is the ship's florist, right?

    • Minnie: I've been driving since I was a young girl.
      Paulie: Horse and buggies don't count.

    • Johnny Sack: That restaurant thing didn't help.
      Tony: He hurt my appraiser, what was I supposed to do? It's on page four of the "Boss Manual," John, Jesus.

    • A.J.: (on Billy Budd) My teacher says it's a gay book.
      Carmela: Who, Mr. Weggler? Oh, that is ridiculous.
      Finn: Actually, I've heard that before.
      Carmela: That book was written when, in the 19th century?
      A.J.: Yeah, I didn't even know they had fags back then.

    • A.J.: (farts loudly) Aww, dude! Meeting's over.

    • Tony: (on Carmela) I know she's my wife and the mother of my kids, but let me tell you: she can be a moody bitch.
