  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Tony: See obviously, Richie, you're fucking deaf, I told you ten times, then I find out you're still dealing blow on those garbage routes.
      Richie: For that I'm losing a fucking bid?
      Tony: Next time you'll find yourself in the back of one of your trucks.

    • Carmela: In a year, tops, you're gonna have to accept a gumar.
      Janice: Oh, yeah? Well I'd like to see a gumar who's gonna let him hold a gun to their head when they fuck.
      Carmela: You let him hold a gun to your head during sex?
      Janice: Yeah. Well, if that gets him off, I mean, it's not any different than garter belts and nurse's uniforms.
      Carmela: Well, it's a gun, Janice. I thought you were a feminist.
      Janice: Usually he takes the clip out.

    • Carmela: What the hell happened over there?
      Tony: Janice decided to go back to Seattle.
      Carmela: You're kidding. What about Richie? He must be devastated.
      Tony: Richie's gone.
      Carmela: What do you mean gone?
      Tony: Gone.
      Carmela: Where?
      Tony: Carmela, after 18 years of marriage, don't make me make you an accessory after the fact.
      Carmela: An accessory after the...(realizes) Holy shit!

    • Carmela: You're putting me in a position where I'm feeling sorry for a whore who fucks you?! You know what's even stranger-for a second I believed you.

    • Janice: What did you do with...[Richie's body]?
      Tony: (deadpan) We buried him... on a hill... overlooking a little river... with pine cones all around.
      Janice: You did?
      Tony: (irritated) Come on, Janice! What the fuck do you care what we did with him?

    • Tony: What is that?
      Irina: Chicken Soup for the Soul.
      Tony: You should read Tomato Sauce for your Ass. It's the Italian version.

    • Tony: How many jobs have you had in this lifetime?
      Janice: Enough to know I don't want another one.

    • Silvio: (on Richie) I genuinely don't think there's anything to gain by keeping him around.

    • Tony: (to Richie) Those who want respect, give respect.

    • (Tony mentions he's breaking it off with Irina)
      Dr. Melfi: I'm interested in why you're ending it.
      Tony: What do you mean why? Isn't that what I'm supposed to do? Aren't you telling me that all the time in here?
      Dr. Melfi: I don't think I've ever passed judgment on your sex life or any patient's sex life.

  • NOTES (3)

    • The German episode title is "Ein schnelles Ende", meaning "A Quick End".

    • Music in this episode:
      "I Saved the World Today" by Annie Lennox; "The Memory Remains" by Metallica

    • In the DVD commentary, the director makes mention that in order to prolong the shock of Richie Aprile being shot, he had the chair rigged so that it would teeter on two legs for a second before it fell back to the floor. This rigging is clearly seen, however. Look for the hand holding the chair.
