In the other room, Jacqueline is dispirited that the progress that the progress is giving way to tit for tat jabs. She tries to break up the tension by offering some cookies, but the ladies semi-politely decline. At this point, Melissa takes out some pictures she brought of the time way back when she and Teresa "used to, like, like each other." She claims she brought them to remind Teresa of the good times, but her delivery is pretty stank. Jacqueline advises them to zip it when they start into the back-and-forth. As an olive branch, Teresa asks Jacqueline to invite Melissa and Joe to her holiday party. Melissa agrees to come, and then it starts back up again. Melissa says Teresa doesn't show her and Joe any love. Teresa says she's the most loving person ever. It's like listening to two chickens clucking at each other. Jacqueline actually sits on Teresa's lap to get her to shut it and quit while she's ahead. Instead, Teresa asks Jacqueline for confirmation that they've never fought in nine years of knowing each other. Melissa doesn't think Jacqueline is the fighting type, so Teresa informs her that Ol' Iron Fists Jacqueline punched Caroline in the face once. Teresa says she could be worse. (Barely.)
Over at the Manzo manse, Caroline and Albert discuss her radio show. He says she started off rocky but hit her stride after a little while. Caroline changes the topic to the upcoming group trip to the Catskills. She's a little bit nervous about how things will go down since Teresa is the hostess.
Over at the Laurita homestead, Jacqueline's packing consists of two massive bottles of wine. We're talkin' Jeroboams here. Chris, on the other hand, is bringing guns. He jokes that Teresa isn't allowed to go near them.
Gorga mansion. Melissa is getting ready for Antonia's ballroom dance performance, telling her sister that Antonia is the youngest person who's ever been in the show. Word is still out whether her in-laws are going to attend the recital. It's especially chafing to Melissa because her mother-in-law is always over at Teresa's taking care of her kids. As usual she feels left out. Melissa's sister asks how the sit-down with Teresa went. Melissa classifies it as aggravating and says Teresa took the words out of her mouth. She reiterates that family does not come first for Teresa, such as when she didn't call Melissa on her 30th birthday. She says that this is Teresa's last chance.
