Andy rescues Teresa from that logical hole and moves on. Per a viewer's question, Melissa admits that she holds Joe equally responsible for the escalating madness at baby Joey's christening. Another question: "Do the Gorgas have a temper problem?" Kathy says they're just too passionate. Teresa drags her in, saying, "And she's half Gorga." Blame is literally the only time Teresa will share any credit, huh? Then they all go into the blow-by-blow account of who got punched and whose hair was pulled, but it's all kind of boring and tertiary, so watch the clip if you're really interested. Moving on!
A viewer wonders if Gia, who was particularly upset at the time, has seen the footage of the christening since. Teresa says she doesn't have to, she lived it, but that she might have. Caroline points out that their families all watched it in the Lauritas' basement along with the Gorgas. What weird, nightmarish gathering that would have been! And not filmed! Why would they have done that? These people are crazy, y'all.
Caroline mentions how Joe anticipated the "beating" he would take from viewers. Teresa senses her cue to position herself as high and mighty, so she says she never asked for an apology and forgave him outright. Caroline: "That's forgiveness? I'm looking at forgiveness right now?" She adds that Teresa told her she didn't want to make up with her brother because he was an a-hole. Teresa calls Caroline a pathetic liar, and Melissa has to pick her jaw up off the floor. Cue more split screen as Teresa calls Caroline "the friggin' Exorcist [sic]."
The drama is cut when they play a package of "Jersey speak," including many instances of the word "youse," Melissa's "Amazing Grace" malapropism ("wench" for "wretch"), the Gorgas' "work ethnic," Teresa's "ingredientses," and so forth. And speaking of nonstarter packages, let's take a look at the Gorgas' sexuality! After a clip about Melissa's singing "career" that features many a "Thank you Jesus!" a viewer asks if Melissa if half black. Apparently she has been asked this many times and teased about it by her sisters. Of her "career" moving forward, Melissa admits that it's getting a little costly and leaves things open-ended. Andy questions Teresa about her dismissive attitude toward Melissa's singing, which segues into the fact that Teresa has also taken credit for Kathy's move into baking. Teresa maintains that the success of her cookbooks is what gave Kathy the push to pursue baking commercially. Kathy just rolls her eyes.
