Late at night, Carmela walks into the kitchen and takes the letter from Berkeley out of the garbage. She wipes the gunk off the envelope. At least Carmela didn't take a squat over by the recycling bin.
Two men show up at Beansie's house and tell Gia Gaeta (Mrs. Beansie) that they're here to install the ramp. She doesn't know what ramp they're talking about, and asks if they're from some physical therapy place. They say that they're with Richie, and Gia says that she will not accept anything from Richie since he almost killed Beansie. She slams the door on them, and Richie's cousin (or nephew?) says he's not going to tell Richie that he can't do the job, so they call their men over to start working on the house as they knock on Gia's door again.
Matt and Sean show up at Richie's Lair. Richie never even turns around as Matt and Sean talk to him, which I love. Richie asks if they're working with Christopher. Matt says that they are. Richie says that Christopher has a lot of attitude. He also calls him a "camel-nosed fuck." Matt and Sean start laughing, so Richie continues with his new stand-up routine. He's going on and on about Christopher's nose, about how he can smoke a cigarette in a rainstorm and shit because of his big nose. Then all three of them are all "no disrespect," and start saying that Christopher is all salt of the earth and stuff because he's practically Tony's son and everything. Richie dismisses them by telling them to let him know if they can ever do anything for him. Richie is loving the adoration. I love Richie loving the adoration.
Jeannie and Joannie are played by the same woman. Jean shows up at Joan's office and tells Joan that she thinks she "goofed." She says that Carmela Soprano wants a letter of recommendation for Meadow. Joan says she's not writing a letter that will put mob blood on the Georgetown campus. Jean's nervous. Joan wants Jean to stand up for herself. I don't know why the women in this show have to always say their sentences in broken fragments like questions with their voices all high and incredulous. "That I'm busy? Which I am? That I don't even know the girl?" Jean says it's just a letter. Joan says no. Jean says that the Sopranos are her neighbors. Joan asks if Jean thinks she'll be put in cement boots over an application. Jean says she just wants to be polite. Joan says she's already writing a letter for a nice Dominican boy from the projects with a 5.2 average. Jean tries the whole "I knew you wouldn't do it" reverse psychology thing, but that doesn't work on Joan either. Joan tells Jean to deal with it. Jean sighs.
