Tony pulls up to a construction site in his Suburban, gets out with a cup of coffee, and asks a hard-hat-wearing Christopher, "How's the boy?" "How am I? I got dust up the crack a my ass and I'm starvin' to death," Christopher tells him sourly. Tony, enjoying Christopher's annoyance, tells him to take pleasure in doing a good job. Christopher complains that some "guy's been raggin' in my fuckin' ear all day, I'd like to kill the prick," and he punctuates the sentiment by yelling, "Ya hear that, prick?" The prick in question comes storming across the site, bitching at Tony to get Christopher the hell out of there. Tony asks if there's a problem, and Prick tells him he's made his point. Tony plays dumb: "What point is that?" Prick says he's had it with the work stoppage. Tony explains with a great show of patience that Christopher is there as a union safety official, and as such he can't allow work to go forward until "he deems this workplace is free of hazard." Or until Prick meets Tony's terms of extortion, whichever comes first. "I have the money," Prick snaps. "You do?" Tony asks in disbelief. He instructs Christopher to call the union office and see if Prick has paid up his dues, and then they'll pop open a set of wheel covers and check the brake pads. "I'll get right on it," Christopher says. The two of them just stand there; Tony sips his coffee calmly. Prick says, "I'll get your money, okay?" "We shall return," Tony says, and he and Christopher walk away, Christopher chucking his hard hat over his shoulder and grumping, "Halle-fuckin'-lujah." Tony asks for Christopher's cell so he can call Carmela.
The Practice-esque whoosh to Tony asking incredulously, "You sure it was them?" Pan over to Carmela grousing, "They were drunk in gym class. Byron Barber vomited all over the teacher." Pan further over, past the bottle of wine on the principal's desk, to AJ protesting that he didn't even drink it, he spat it out. "Anthony," the principal warns him, and Carmela bites off, "On top of this, you're gonna lie to me now?" Tony tells the principal that "[AJ's] very sorry, Father Hagy, and he's gonna be even sorrier when he gets home." Father Hagy suggests that AJ wait outside; AJ glances at Tony, who motions him out with his head, so AJ stomps over to the door and stomps out. Nice attitude, Demi-Lush. Carmela mutters to Tony, "He's suspended for three days." Tony, reaching for his wallet, offers to pay for the wine, but Father Hagy coldly informs him that the theft of the wine "is not just a crime against property -- this is an affront to our holy sacristy." Tony shrugs and puts his wallet away. Heh. Father Hagy says that he's asked Dr. Galani, the school psychologist, to join them, adding that Dr. Galani has "been keeping an eye on Anthony" and talking to his teachers. He gives Dr. G the floor.
