  • Quotes

    • Junior: I'd better call and send Hugh my regrets.
      Bobby: Junior! It's supposed to be a surprise.
      Junior: What are we, children? At our age it's enough surprise to get up in the morning.

    • Carmela: (on Lena Fegoli) She of the five page Christmas card. "And then on Flag Day, Grandpa Russ shook hands with Andrew Cuomo... what an honor." BFD!
      Hugh: (to A.J.) When we were kids in the Navy, he had such a bad case of crabs, we used to call him "the governor of Maryland."

    • Tony B.: When I first got out of the joint, I thought an airbag was Paulie Walnuts.

    • Carmela: Whatever we are, I am proud of it, unlike you obviously.
      Mary: I have always been proud of my heritage.
      Carmela: There are Italians all around with their closet self-loathing. I just never wanted to believe my mother was one of them!

    • Little Carmine: (on his trompe l'oeil painting) That's called a "trump-ay le oil".

    • Carmela: You're sorry? For what?
      Mary: Oh
      Carmela: No, no. I wanna hear.
      Mary: Oh, please Carmela. The off-color jokes, the sausage twirling...
      Carmela: Tony.
      Mary: These are cultured Italians. Russ is a success-a diplomat. This was a shock for them.
      Carmela: And he's such a diplomat, he insults his host?
