At Vesuvio, Artie serves Tony and Furio. He asks how Carmela is handling the empty nest, and Tony echoes the forums by saying, "What empty? Every five minutes Meadow is home with a laundry bag." They banter about the kids a bit more, and then Jackie Jr. shows up, looking surly in black leather and sunglasses. Adriana apparently hasn't given notice yet, by the way. Furio clears out when he approaches, and Jackie Jr. sits with Tony. There's awkward silence; Jack Jack (?) clearly doesn't want to be there. Tony asks if he wants anything to eat or drink, and then orders him to lose the sunglasses. Jackie Jr. complies, and Tony starts his little speech. "I'm gonna say some bad words here, and you're just going to have to deal with it." He tells Jackie Jr. the story about Richie being a rat in the witness protection program, and swears he didn't kill him. Jackie Jr. takes affront at this suggestion, and starts to make a scene in the middle of the restaurant. Tony sits him down again, and tells him that everyone knows about Richie, and it hurt them all. Jack Jack finally accepts it, and Tony takes the opportunity to warn him off the Mob life. The kid was supposed to become a doctor, but the classes are too hard, and now he's "thinking maybe osteopathy," but doesn't know if his grades are good enough. How good do your grades have to be to give a massage, anyway? "Your father never wanted this life for you, and I don't want it for my son either," he says, and I bet AJ would be pretty glad to hear that.
Too bad he's busy playing football. Tony is in the stands with all the other dads, bitching about AJ's playing time. One of the other dads gets really fired up and starts swearing at the ref while being dragged away. "That's Romano, the periodontist," Tony is told. Well, at least he probably has fresh breath when he yells. AJ finally gets put into the game on defense, and on his first play he recovers a fumble, or more accurately, he ends up at the bottom of a pile with the ball in his hands. Everything goes to slow motion as the players are pulled up, and Tony and the fans are cheering. The slo-mo makes them sound like bleating cows. Heh. After the game, Tony walks AJ out to the parking lot and gives him football tips from his old playing days. He offers to take AJ to "Stewart's for some dogs," but AJ would rather play Nintendo instead. After asking when AJ plans to throw the Nintendo out the window (only he used the word "friggin" three times in the sentence), Tony agrees to play. Pleased at his father's willingness to indulge him, AJ agrees to go to Stewart's and they drive off.
