Joan's office. Joan's assistant tells her that Carmela has shown up. Before Joan can finish saying, "Send her in," Carmela's already walking into the office, all smiles and food gifts. She asks if this is a bad time. "Always," Joan smiles fakely with her arms wide open. Carmela gives Joan a pie. She says her mother's foot surgeon is in the neighborhood. Joan says she knows why Carm is there. She says that she knows Carmela wants her to write a letter of recommendation. "Fielder, is it?" she asks. Carmela corrects her on Meadow's name. Joan says she can't. Carmela has brought an envelope with Meadow's grades, SAT scores, and teacher comments. Joan says the admissions office will probably see that Meadow would be a good addition to Georgetown. Carmela says the "sad fact" is that that's not true these days. Joan apologizes and says she can't do anything. "I don't think you understand," Carmela says with a smile. "I want you to write that letter." Joan asks if Carmela is threatening her. Carmela laughs and says, "What threatening?" She says she just brought a pie, and Meadow's transcripts so that Joan can write a letter of recommendation. Joan says she's an officer of the court. Carmela says that Joan is just a lawyer. She smiles and says, "Don't make me beg here." Joan says she's written her last letter of support. Carmela starts constructing the lie that Joan's going to tell when she submits Meadow's letter of recommendation and then stops herself, saying she's not going to tell Joan what to write. She says she left her mother in the car with the foot. She puts down the envelope and says, "Thanks for this." Carmela leaves as Joan sits back and sighs. She's not the mob boss's wife for nothing, folks.
The Monkey Boys are pouting at the Bada Bing. Tony shows up and walks into the bathroom. They freak out and wonder if they should go say hello. They agree that they should go talk to him in the bathroom and introduce themselves, so they start grooming each other. I totally thought at this point that they'd end up getting caught making out or something, and they'd get whacked for being in love. Does the Mob have a "don't ask, don't tell" rule?
