And then just as CMJ is giving full permission for Teresa to shit on his wife ("Oh, thanks!" says Melissa), just not his kids, Teresa approaches, and we're back to where we started. Teresa leans in for the awkward kiss, and CMJ tells Teresa to take a walk. Gia jumps in, and Teresa is two steps from walking away when CMJ calls her garbage. CMJ pounds the table, and BJ joins the fracas. Both sides feel they were aggressed, and CMJ drops F-bombs like there's no tomorrow. Amidst the epic melee, one of the family decides to push down the camera, just as CMJ yells, "I'll fuckin' kill every one of yous!" A lone cross hangs from a branch, wobbling from the sound waves assaulting it.
Kathy corrals a crying Gia and Audriana and gets them out of the room. Back at the main event, some random extra guy starts going bananas, probably just amped on 'roids and happy that there's a chance to punch someone. Melissa pins it all on BJ. She adds, "This crowd is not the kind of crowd you want to get into a fight with." Finally some guy, who had enough sense not to sign the waiver and so has a blurred face, reminds everyone that they're at a damn christening, so sit the fuck down. BJ's sister Maria tries to calm down CMJ, but he keeps hurling insults about how BJ is a piece of shit who ruined his relationship with his father. Melissa reiterates that BJ planted the seed in Teresa's father's head that CMJ isn't around enough because he works too much. "Well, we have bills to pay," snaps Melissa, "and we pay our bills."
BJ is still wondering from the sidelines what just went down when Teresa decides to check on her father, he of the double-bypass. Somewhere in between the second or third time CMJ declares of the Giudice family, "They are shit," they decide to leave -- though BJ is threatening to crack CMJ's skull the entire way over the wailing protestations of Gia. Teresa attends to her father as Joey #4 calms down CMJ by taking him to the bar. Greeeeeat idea. Melissa is still in shock that things turned to such a shambles.
