And then, eventually, Juicy and Joe get into it. It's mostly the usual shit, but then Joe starts talking about how much he helped out Joe at the beginning of his career as a contractor or real estate magnate or whatever it is that he does. "Construction." And then one time he loaned Joe some masonry tools, which Joe never gave back. Joe says, "So then you hate me because of that?" and Juicy replies, "No, I don't hate you because of THAT." Joe points out that he was 18 at the time. And then, to underscore his point that he has no problem with helping others, Juicy notes that Richie was pumping gas when they met. Richie counters that Joe was flipping pizzas six months ago. And not even that! But bottom line, when Joe Giudice borrows something from someone, he gives it back. Richie advises Joe Gorga to go to Sears and get Juicy a new tool chest. Juicy says that he doesn't need the tool chest anymore. That's because he doesn't have a job. Rich then asks Joe if he ever banged one of Juicy's girlfriends. He didn't, which is too bad, because Juicy would have been okay with that. Joe Gorga just sort of looks around in disbelief and horror. If I recapped with a mirror in front of me, I think I would see that expression a lot. Chris sees this whole conversation as further evidence that Juicy and Teresa are complete creeps, and don't want anyone to do well but themselves. His hopes for a peaceful trip have pretty much been dashed, and now he's concerned that things will revert back to the same fighting and drama as always. That's pretty much the raison d'etre of this show, is it not?
Next week: Napa. The best we can hope for is at least two of the RVs to drive off of a cliff.
Potes would like Tabatha to take over the Giudices. Tweet her @traciepotes or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
