Back at The Manor, Rich and Kathy are talking to the Gorgas. Rich brings up one sore subject after another, from Teresa's dad to Teresa herself. CMJ says he ignores Teresa the way she ignores him at parties. CMJ says he'll put up with a lot from Teresa, but he won't put up with her excluding his family from events. He doesn't approve of BJ's behavior and thinks he's a drunken layabout who's poisoning his father's opinion of him. He will not, however, ignore his goddaughter Gia, who has arrived from her gymnastics competition. CMJ says the ball is in Teresa's court because he's tired of being hurt.
Manzo manse. Caroline asks if Chris will pay for Bratshley's wedding. Chris quips, "Absolutely. As many people as McDonald's can fit, I got it covered." Frankly, that's better than she deserves. Jacqueline gives everyone the update on Bratshley's tantrum the other day. Caroline is firmly on Jacqueline's side. Jacqueline interviews that it hurts when Bratshley doesn't listen to her and considers her an annoyance. She points out the Chris is going to have to commute from Hoboken to the Brownstone, so he announces that he is no longer working at the Brownstone after this week. He and Albert discussed it and decided he needed to explore the world and discover his passion. Caroline says she's proud of both her boys for making this decision.
The dancing and merrymaking continue at The Manor, but Teresa feels the hurt when she tries to dance with her brother, and he gives her the cold shoulder. When she gets hold of baby Joey for a special dance with BJ, Melissa thinks it's all for show. She sends one of her minions over to take back the baby from Teresa and BJ.
The Manzo-Lauritas discuss the dynamic of the Giudice-Gorgas back at their dinner. It baffles all of them, and Jacqueline says Teresa felt like Melissa pulled away once she married CMJ. "There's definitely some kind of triangle going on there," she says. Caroline thinks they each don't understand their place in the family and that it's a case of Teresa and Melissa being so similar that they don't get along.
Dinner is served at The Manor. CMJ goes off that Teresa "grabbed" little Joey for a dance. Melissa recalls at Audriana's christening how Melissa was holding the baby, and Teresa ripped Audriana from Melissa's hands. And look! It's another Joey, this time it's Melissa's brother-in-law. CMJ -- emboldened by many shots, no doubt -- tells Melissa he does want her to react when Teresa steps out of line. Lysa thinks Melissa should be the bigger person. "You know what, Joe," says Joey, "we're classy!" Then he brings up how BJ owes him money. Elegance! Like the town gossip, Rich tells us that the Joes were friends all through their childhood. He thinks their falling out has to do with things that Teresa has been whispering in her husband's ear.
