Columbus Park. A group of Native-Americans is staging a fairly rowdy protest, the highlight of which comes when a woman who appears to be the long-lost identical cousin of Marilyn the Quirky Secretary from Northern Exposure yells, "Mussolini was Hitler's bitch!" Things quickly turn ugly when Silvio and crew arrive, and within seconds, a fight breaks out. The cops storm in to calm things down, and Silvio turns out to actually be on a first name basis with them. One even apologizes for the fact that the Indians have a permit that allows them to protest. Meanwhile, Patsy Parisi, and Yet Another Familiar Guy Whose Name I Don't Know have snuck off to the side, where they're attempting to dislodge a hanging Christopher Columbus dummy that's scheduled to be burned in effigy. This quickly leads to those two getting arrested, and then a bottle comes flying out of the crowd and smacks Little Paulie on the back of the head. Artie absolutely cracks me up as he freaks out at the violence and frantically scrambles to lock himself back in the car. Before he makes it, however, some kid creams him in the back of the head with what looks like an orange Slurp-E. Mmmm, Slurp-Es. Silvio rounds his gang up and leads them out of there, but not before Little Paulie has to be taken to the hospital.
Back at the church, the women emerge and head for their cars. Mrs. Little Stevie delivers a report on the stern talking-to she gave Father Intintola, and then Karen Bacala says she has to get going for a dental appointment. Everybody watch as she climbs into her mini-van, because it's the last time you'll ever see her. In the background, Foreshadowing rings the church bells as ominously as only he knows how.
Cut to later, as Bobby Bacala sits in his car, stuck in traffic. He's got a funny cell phone ring, too. It's no Rocky, but then again, he also doesn't have a vibrating piece of plastic stuck in his ass. At least I hope he doesn't. With that fat suit Steven Schirripa has to wear, you never really know. It's his AJ-wannabe kid on the phone, calling to tell him that Mom wants him to bring home some steak and eggplants for supper. Bobby complains that Mrs. Bobby can be "a real pain in the ass sometimes," but he does agree to do the grocery shopping. Through the windshield, we can see a nasty-looking car wreck up ahead, with police, paramedics, and Foreshadowing all gathered around the flipped-over car.
