Paulie pours himself a drink back at the backroom at the Bada Bing. He says that he made the appointment with a fake name. They didn't know who he was. He says that he's dragging a bunch of ghouls with him and Mikey is their ringleader. Tony says that there's no reason all of those people would follow Mikey around. Paulie asks how Tony can be so calm. Tony says he doesn't believe any of this shit. Paulie says that he was ready to write the entire thing off until the psychic mentioned Sonny. He says he did that hit thirty years ago, and doesn't know how the psychic would know that. Tony asks if Paulie asked the psychic where Matt Bevelaqua is, since that would be actual helpful knowledge. Paulie says the psychic deals only with the dead. Tony is at a loss for words. He asks if Paulie eats steak. Paulie says he does. The phone starts ringing as Tony explains that if Paulie lived in India he'd go to Hell for eating steak, but since he doesn't live in India, he doesn't believe he's going to Hell for that. He leaves to answer the phone.
AJ's listening to headphones in his room as Tony enters with a box of pizza. AJ says he's not hungry. Tony asks if he can sit there and eat, then. He puts down the six-pack of Tab and the pizza and pulls a chair up to AJ's bed. AJ takes off his headphones, but keeps reading his magazine. Tony apologizes for talking to him the way he did. AJ says it's okay, and Tony says it isn't. He says he hopes AJ knows he didn't mean it. A phone starts ringing off-camera as Tony explains that he has to learn how to control his emotions around the people that he loves. There's no excuse for the way he acted. Carmela walks up behind Tony and stands in the doorway holding the cordless phone. Tony says that he thinks AJ's a bit like him, in that he holds his feelings inside and reacts without thinking. Tony says he gets mad at AJ because he sees himself in him. He says he couldn't ask for a better son. AJ half-smiles and thanks Tony. They eat pizza. Carmela enters and says that Pussy's on the phone. "He says it's urgent." Tony takes the phone and walks into the hallway. AJ eats his pizza as he and Carmela share a look.
Tony tells Pussy he'll be right there and hangs up the phone. Carmela takes the phone and asks what's going on. Tony takes a couple of seconds before he says, "Nothing." He breathes heavily into his body mic and walks off. Carmela watches him leave. She looks worried.
