Bada Bing backroom. Silvio is playing cards with Paulie and Carlo Gervasi when Tony shows up to tell them all about the Vespa situation. Carlo is pissed, because he's under the impression that "the young crowd is crazy for these scooters." Yeah. Razor scooters, maybe. In 1998. There's not a kid on Earth that dreams of owning a Vespa. Not even AJ is that dorky. ["I see dozens of douchebag kids in my neighbourhood who'd beg to differ, but then I live in Little Italy." -- Wing Chun] Tony isn't sure whether to believe Johnny's story or not (In Vespa Veritas?), which seems a little odd when you remember that Johnny pretty much just came right out and admitted stealing the scooters. Silvio: "I will say, very interesting timing, T. You and John have that little chat at the funeral, whatever that was...suddenly, no Vespas." It's the facial mugging on the "whatever that was" part that really sells the line. Tony suddenly gets a call on his cell, and he kicks everyone out of the office, but not before ordering Vinnie Delpino to go find Oblong Guy and investigate what's been happening down at the port. As soon as the room is empty, Tony answers by immediately promising to take care of "the property taxes." "Hello to you, too," replies Carmela. "I just thought you should know," she adds, with obvious relish, "your sister Janice got arrested."
