At the Crazy Horse, Vinnie Delpino eats a meal at the bar. He notices someone walk in, and grabs his glasses better to see who it is. Good thing he checked, because it's Phil Leotardo and his friend. Vinnie slips out the back door and heads for his car. He gets in and struggles with his keys. Phil walks up and knocks on the window. Instead of just taking off, Vinnie opens the door and tries to make nice. After some conversation, Phil grabs Vinnie by the neck. Vinnie finally tries to drive off, but he runs into a wall. Phil pulls him out and starts whacking Vinnie with the cane. This goes on for some time. There are gross sound effects. Some women walk into the parking lot, so Phil ends the beating by saying, "It's a start."
Tony walks into Vinnie's hospital room. Wide Guy, Little Paulie, and some other guys I don't know are gathered around Vinnie's bed. Vinnie doesn't look so hot. Wide Guy reports that Vinnie has a fractured skull. Tony sighs and loudly tells Vinnie that the costs will be taken care of through the plumber's union health plan. Vinnie's eyelid twitches. Tony adds that they think it's time for Vinnie to get his own customers. No response. Tony asks where Larry Boy is, and Little Paulie says that he's staying home. Tony is shocked, because apparently Larry Boy is Vinnie's godfather. Little Paulie smirks, "House arrest." Tony sighs again and walks out. Little Paulie says that this is fucked up. Wide Guy asks what they want to do about it. Little Paulie wants Tony to give them permission to go to Brooklyn and crack some skulls. Wide Guy says that Diet Tony whacked the brother of a captain, so if Tony tries to make another strike, they should take Tony out instead. Wide Guy! With the threats against the boss!
