Carm and Ro are in Paris! They take a cab, and the driver plays rap music in French. Neither woman looks very happy or comfortable. Ro asks Carmela whether her bowels just jam up when she flies. I would so go on a trip with Rosalie. Smoking and talking about poop. What could be better?
Vito walks into the grocery store and spots someone from the Jersey crew. I don't know the guy's name, but he's one of the lower-level guys that you see hanging around in the background sometimes. Maybe he used to work on Vito's crew? I don't know. Anyway, this guy wants to borrow some money from Vito to help pay his back child support. Vito agrees to it, even if the guy does flinch every time Vito comes near him.
Phil and Tony meet up near a statue of Lou Costello. Phil is pissed that Tony hasn't taken care of the Vito situation yet. Tony doesn't want to hear it, and walks off.
Carm and Ro eat in a bistro. Carmela is wearing a fedora for some unknown reason. I guess she bought it with her stacks of cash. Rosalie is excited that she's allowed to smoke inside the restaurant. They make small talk, including a non-sequitur where Carmela asks about Ro's digestive issues mentioned earlier, and Rosalie snaps to herself, "I put in the fucking memory stick." Rosalie is reading an instruction manual, so presumably, she's talking about a digital camera, but the way the scene was structured, more than one forum poster thought "memory stick" was code for "suppository." Rosalie and Carm take in the sounds of people speaking French and revel in their anonymity for a minute. Carmela cautions Rosalie to try to get on the local schedule, and pulls out one of her many guidebooks, so she's totally that vacationer, the one with the schedule. I am also that type, but I know lots of people hate that type. Carmela finds a reference to Eloise and Abelard in her guidebook and reminisces. Carmela has big plans for the day, but Rosalie seems to want to hang out, drink wine, and smoke. Again, I would love to go on Rosalie's version of a European vacation. Carmela is nervous to use her French, and says that Tony barely knows any Spanish and yet when they were in Miami, he was talking to the Spanish-speaking people with no problem. That, to me, suggests that Tony has a bigger sense of entitlement than Carmela; he just expects that people will try to keep up with him no matter what.
Carmela and Rosalie wander the streets of Paris, and Carmela starts to get upset because they've gone the wrong way. Can you imagine these two on The Amazing Race? Carmela and Rosalie bicker for a moment, but then Carmela looks up and just realizes the splendor of the city of Paris and says, "Oh, my God!" Rosalie looks around, too, and the two women just stand there for a few minutes, taking in the beauty around them, and just realizing that they are in Paris. Paris! Carmela studies a nearby statue with a thoughtful look on her face.
