  • Quotes

    • Christopher: I think he's dyin'.
      Paulie: Must've cracked his windpipe. That's it for him.
      Christopher: What, are you a fuckin' doctor now? What're we gonna do?

    • Tony: (on the phone) He was with the Interior Ministry. Guy's like a Russian green beret. He can not come back and tell this story. You understand?
      Paulie: I hear you.
      (hangs up phone)
      Paulie: You're not gonna believe this. He killed sixteen Czechoslovakians. Guy was an interior decorator.
      Christopher: Interior decorator? His apartment looked like shit.

    • Gloria: (to Tony) If I wanted to be treated like shit, I'd get married.

    • Christopher: Don't give me that 'captain shit' now, Paulie. Right now we're just two assholes lost in the woods.

    • Christopher: Russians, they're not all bad.
      Paulie: How about the Cuban Missile Crisis? Cocksuckers moved nuclear warheads into Cuba, pointed them right at us.
      Christopher: That was real? I saw that movie. I thought it was bullshit.

    • Dr. Melfi: Do you think lying to Carmela in therapy is the best thing for your panic attacks?
      Tony: Things are good between me and Carm, you said so yourself.
      Dr. Melfi: It's all predicated on a lie.
      Tony: It's all predicated on my ass. What's the difference?

    • Gloria: If you're trying to be honest, then why did you lie?
      Tony: Cause I don't want to piss you off.
      Gloria: So it's really about you then?
      Tony: What are you talking about? I didn't want to hurt your feelings.
      Gloria: No, what you said was you didn't want to piss me off which implies that you'd have to deal with me, which was more about sparing you than my fucking feelings.

    • Paulie: (on Russians) I don't even know why we deal with these people.
      Tony: Wanna guess?
      Paulie: They make us money.
      Tony: Thank you.
