Paulie and Christopher, however, may actually be dumber than they look, if such a thing is even possible. They're hanging out in Diet Tony's casino, speculating on what he earns there ($2,500 - $5,000 a night), and commiserating over the fact that Fat Tony now has a new "teacher's pet." "I'm just saying," Paulie is saying, "now you know what I went through." Yeah, right. If there's one guy in that crew who I can assure you was never Tony's favorite, it's Paulie. You can tell by the way he never gets the good sub-plots anymore.
The next day, Chris and Adriana are shopping for a wedding cake, possibly because they're the only two people left on the planet who actually think that wedding is going to happen. Tony obviously isn't expecting it any time soon, because he interrupts this happy little domestic scene by pulling up outside the store and laying on his horn for three hours until Christopher finally comes outside. Wow. It's actually kind of refreshing finally to see a boss that's more annoying than mine (not you, Wing. My other boss. Please don't punch me ["My name may end in an 'o,' but that's where my resemblance to Janice ends, I hope." -- Wing Chun]). Christopher climbs into the back seat (because the front is occupied by a pair of Tonys), and studiously arranges the can of soda in his hand so that we can't see the label, lest anyone watching be tricked into giving their hard-earned money to a corporation which keeps kicking up its product-placement dollars to the wrong damn capo. Tony announces that he just got a call from their "friend with the orchard," who told him that he's selling said orchard and retiring to Florida. It's clear from Christopher's reaction that he has fond feelings for the orchard owner, but after a few seconds, a more important realization hits him. "You still got your 'canned peaches' up there," Tony reminds him. Then he warns Christopher to watch what he says because the car was just serviced, and someone could have planted a bug. Personally, I'm more interested in trying to figure out why Tony's brand spanking new luxury SUV would need to be serviced less than three episodes after he bought it, but I guess the Cadillac people were off the set that day and the line somehow slipped through. Fat Tony orders Chris and Diet Tony to go up there and dig up all the "canned fruit," and in case you haven't figured it out yet, "canned fruit" is a euphemism for dead bodies, and not the contents of Wide Guy's pantry. Chris wants to do the job alone, because he's still pissed at Diet Tony, but Fat Tony explains that his father left some peaches up there as well, so it's a big job and they only have a limited amount of time to finish it. Chris reluctantly agrees to the partnership, and then tries to go back to selecting a wedding cake. Hmm. I wonder if he'll get a fruitcake?
