FBI headquarters. The agents are all gathered in a conference room, discussing their plans to take down the Soprano family. If you watch this scene closely, you can actually see the writers ticking off plot points in the background. Apparently, Junior has beaten cancer in the two weeks since "Pine Barrens" aired, and now has a new trial date scheduled in thirty days. Also, the bugged lamp is gone, and the episode one surveillance on Adriana and Carmela playing tennis has led the agents to decide to go through Adriana to get to Christopher. The head guy buzzes on the intercom for "Deborah" to be sent in, and every other guy in the room immediately starts primping and straightening his tie. Deborah is of course being played by a bespectacled Fairuza Balk, who (as pointed out in the forums) appears to be channeling the presumably unavailable Debi Mazar. "How would you like a new best friend for the next nine or ten months?" asks the head agent. Deborah is also apparently not real bright, because she just gapes at him until he continues, "Let me put it this way. How big can you make your hair?"
Cut to yet another board game the Little Lord sucks at. This time he's playing chess with Nina, and she has to chew him out for trying to move his pawn too many spaces in one move. Her dad comes over and sits down to check out the board. "I think you're done for," he tells the Poo Ass. "Look at the way she's developing her knights." After studying the board himself for a minute, Jackie angrily knocks the pieces over, which prompts Nina to gloat that she's won yet again. "You should have played that out," suggests Dad in the last meta-comment the Little Lord will ever have to hear. "That's the only way you're going to learn." A frustrated Fuckpants gets up to go for a walk, and after some quick teasing with the undeniably cute little kid, he heads outside.
