Bada Bing. The Monkey Boys are pouting. They can't get a hold of Christopher. They look around the room at the other made men. Matt shakes his head and says, "This is fucked." He says they're like two scared rabbits. Douche bags. He says they aren't doing anything. Sean says they're just getting started. Matt says they have to do something. Sean agrees that they have to do something to get ahead.
Meadow is furious because Liliana was in her room. Carmela is just reading through the mail, commenting on the different CD-ROMs that come in the mail from Internet providers. She says it's wasteful. Meadow is still pissed, and Carmela tells Meadow that Liliana had to go in there for laundry because Meadow had half of the bath towels in her room. They fight about Meadow's room. Meadow says that she's eighteen and she's not going to be living there much longer. She says she can take care of herself. She tells Carmela to "bug out," which I don't think anyone's said since sometime in 1992. Carmela suddenly gets a calm about her and says that Meadow is right. She can take care of herself. Meadow thanks her. Carmela says that Meadow is going to be going to college soon, and she shouldn't interfere. Meadow slowly backs away, completely mistrusting her mother's mild tone. Carmela smiles.
Melfi's office. Tony tells Melfi he doesn't have anything to talk about, but since it's Tuesday at three, they have to talk about something. He thinks of something. He tells her about how he gave Meadow Eric's car because of the gambling debt. He says that he knew Meadow would be upset to get her friend's car, and she'd know how he got it. He was rubbing his daughter's face in his business to remind her of how he made a living. He says that all of these years, he'd been protecting her, and now he's not. He's trying to let Meadow know that he's a good father, while Eric's dad appears to be a good father even though he's an asshole degenerate gambling fuckhead. Tony's words, not mine. Melfi points out that Eric is one of those "happy wanderers" that Tony hates. "How do you remember this shit?" Tony asks. Melfi says that Tony might have been trying to show Meadow what the real world is like before she leaves for school. That what he did was rather noble, teaching her about the truth in the world. "Teaching her to fly." Tony remarks that it's amazing that Melfi can turn something terrible he did into something admirable. Melfi says they're getting to something. He says time's up. She says that they have plenty of time. He says he's done talking. End of scene.
