Gerald Levin: Ha! Take that, West Wing! How's that pansy "Josh gets therapy" Emmy reel looking now, losers?
David Chase: Dude, calm down.
Gerald Levin: Sorry. It's just that between you and Buffy, they're really starting to piss me off. Plus, you just know they're going to go all Picket Fences on us and win for like fourteen straight years.
David Chase: Yeah, but Picket Fences doesn't get recaps, does it?
Carmela and Jackie Jr. wander through Casa di Soprano, looking for the pieces of a tea service that he's picking up for his mom. Tony comes in, and Carmela takes his not-so-subtle hint to leave the two men alone. Jackie takes the initiative and tells Tony that he agrees with the decision to not make Joey Pants captain. Tony gets even more pissed than he already was, and informs Jackie that Christopher spilled the beans about their little concert heist. Tony begs Jackie to stay out of the life, and just then Meadow enters. She greets Jackie with a warm hug, and completely ignores Tony. At first, he's just happy to see her with a guy he actually approves of, but eventually he asks if he gets a hello, too. "I need $200," she says, and I duck instinctively, expecting my mom to throw something at me just for having heard that. They start arguing, and pretty soon Jackie Jr., the maid, and anyone else within a five-hundred-foot radius knows all about Meadow and Noah. Carmela comes in and leads Meadow (and her laundry) away, and Jackie Jr. promises Tony he won't tell anyone about the [racial slur].
