At Livia's, Carmela stands in the living room, hands on her hips; Livia sulks in a chair. Carmela tells Livia she needs help around the house, but Livia doesn't want a "stranger" who "could [sic] care less about doing it right" coming in. Carmela gently says that Livia "need[s] company." Livia grits out, "Now, don't start with that nursing home business again." Carmela attempts to explain that it's not a nursing home, it's a retirement community. Livia waves a hand and sneers. Carmela rolls her eyes and offers to make Livia something to eat; again with the hand wave and the sneer. Carmela sighs, and the massive shoulder pads in her scary rayon blouse seem to slump. She tries again, saying that she's told both Livia and Tony many times that she'd welcome Livia coming to live with them. Livia barely waits for her to finish: "I know when I'm not wanted."
Carmela says flatly that she's just invited Livia to "share" her home, but "if you want me to beg, that's different." Livia gets weepy at the prospect of leaving the house she shared with her late husband, and in response to Carmela's observation that "change can be a positive," she begins to cry in earnest: "He was a saint." She reins it in to ask if Tony is "still having those fits." Carmela corrects her that "they're anxiety attacks" and says that Tony's on medication. Livia closes her eyes and drops her head all "oh, Jesus."
Pussy's body shop. Pussy grouses about pricing; Joe, who runs the place, tells him that "it's been that way for six months." "When was I last here?" Pussy says, throwing a list down on the desk. Joe comes over and says that a shop on Watchung Avenue told him some guys brought in a Saturn the other day and tried to "unload it for parts." Pussy impatiently asks him if he's telling people that "this car's for Tony Soprano, and leave it all in one piece?" Joe says, "Yeah, sure -- it's for the kid's teacher." Joe goes on to say that "one of the goofballs had a uniform on from, uh -- Buttfuck's," and cracks himself up. Pussy arches a brow. Joe means Starbucks, evidently; seems the guy who came in with the car works there. Joe hands Pussy a piece of paper with all the info on it. "I'm fucking Rockford over here," Pussy grumbles.
