Episode: Mr. and Mrs. John Sacrimoni Request (SE6, EP5) Characters: The entire New
York and New Jersey families (except Rusty Millio)
One of many great moments at Allegra Sacrimoni’s 400.000 dollar wedding. The
atmosphere at the wedding is delivered perfectly. It’s like you are standing there
yourself. This is how you do production design in a Mafia series; the music, the
people, the traditions, it’s all there and all great.
109. Poor Me, Poor You
Episode: Amour Fou (SE3, EP12) Characters: Tony and Gloria
It is quite subtle, but Gloria really is the substitute for Livia who died
earlier in Season 3. ‘I sit back like a mute, while you screw every woman out there.’
In this scene, Tony finally sees it to. ‘I have known you all my life. A bottomless
black hole.’ Subsequently Gloria tries to commit ‘suicide by mob boss’. Normally
an affective technique, but Tony is too clever to let it go down like this. Great
acting here by Annabella Sciorra and James Gandolfini.
108. Phone Games
Episode: Whoever Did This (SE4, EP9) Characters: Ralphie, Mrs Gualtieri, Vito and
Ralphie figured it was Paulie who told the Ginny Sack joke to Johnny Sack.
He calls Green Grove to get back at him. Paulie’s mum answers. Ralphie: ‘Hello, Mrs
Gualtieri, this is detective Mike Hunt, Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania Police Department.
We found your son in a public men’s room in Lafayette Park. I don’t know how to put
this delicately; he was sucking a cub scout’s dick.’ He goes on for a while and has
everyone in stitches. Including the audience. Too bad Ralphie goes this episode;
he is one funny motherfucker.
107. Momma’s Boy
Episode: The Fleshy Part of the Thigh (SE6, EP4) Characters: Paulie and Jason Barone
Jason Barone finds out the true nature of his recently deceased father’s business.
Paulie, who was moved by Jason mother’s protection of him, due to his own recent
family discovery, intimidates Jason into paying him four grand every month, exactly
the price for his mother’s retirement community. A very grim lesson about being in
the Mafia’s grip; even after you are dead, your children might end up in the same
shitty position as you.
106. Kingsley’s ‘Fuck’
Episode: Luxury Lounge (SE6, EP7) Characters: Christopher, James ‘Murmur’ Zancone,
Ben Kingsley and agent
Chris and Murmur are on the plane back from Christopher’s little movie adventure.
They are still grinning about the Lauren Bacall rough-up when Ben Kingsley enters,
who totally doesn’t like to be around the obnoxious Christopher anymore. His agent
booked him on the wrong flight. His subsequent delivery of the F word is one of the
best in the entire series. Faaackkk!!!
105. Waste Management
Episode: Whoever Did This (SE4, EP9) Characters: Tony and Christopher
There something very sinister about the atmosphere in WHOEVER DID THIS, in
which Tony and Christopher casually dispose of Ralphie’s corpse. Tony works a machine
here, to dig a hole in frozen ground. They might as well be building a shed these
104. Story Arc
Episode: Walk Like a Man (SE6, EP17) Characters: Christopher and J.T. Dolan
A drunken Chris visits screenwriter T.J. who has functioned as the mob’s bitch
ever since he borrowed cash from Christopher. The poor slob doesn’t realise how dangerous
Chris is at this point. After Christopher starts spilling his guts about Adriana
and Ralph Cifaretto, T.J. blows him off which leads to his killing. He quite literally
made his LAWAND ORDER deadline.
103. Meeting of Minds
Episode: Kaicha (SE6, EP12) Characters: Tony, Phil, Silvio, Little Carmine, Butch
DeConcini and Gerry Torciano
Carmine Jr., with his attempts at eloquence, is always good for a few laughs.
He organised a meeting between Tony and Phil to discuss the rising tension. He opens
the meeting with: ‘Now, I wouldn’t call it a sit-down because of the inclement negative
implications. Let’s think of it as a meeting of minds.’ When things are smoothened
between the two rivals, Carmine brings up Phil’s brother Billy, who was murdered
by Tony’s cousin Tony B. Oh no.
102. New Jersey Bride
Episode: The Knight in White Satin Armor (SE2, EP12) Characters: Carmela and Janice
Janice is happy with her cleavage and Carmela is melancholic about Tony’s cheating.
She tells Janice; ‘In a year tops you’re gonna have to accept a goomar.’ Janice her
comeback is strong as always. ‘I’d like to see the goomar that let him hold a gun
to her head while they fuck.’ Carmela is pretty much stunned. ‘I though you were
a feminist, Janice.’ But she thinks it’s just a little fetisjism and besides; ‘he
usually takes the clip out.’ Richie is a real prize.
101. Butcher Boys
Episode: Cold Stones (SE6, EP11) Characters: Silvio, Carlo and Fat Dom Gamiello
Busting balls is one thing, but calling Jersey boys cocksuckers is quite another.
Fat Dom Gamiello gets a taste of his own medicine after joking about Vito and Carlo
sucking dick. What was he thinking? You know how explosive these guys can get. Silvio
hits him from behind with a dustbuster, while Carlo stabs him repeatedly with a cooking
knife. All the while Fat Dom squeels like a pig; it’s very messy. Afterwards, Silvio
notes that they can’t chop him up at Satriale’s because of DNA technology. Whackings
don’t get much better than this.
