At the brokerage, Christopher is apologizing for the Monkey Boys' behavior. Then he calls them into the office for a stern dressing-down. He asks them to refresh his memory on the Wabistix thing, which immediately translates to "please provide much needed exposition on this subplot." They explain the concept of "pump-and-dump," and how they're pawning all the stock off on old ladies. It's up to eighty, though, and they want to sell. Christopher teaches a little Racketeering 101, laying down the primary rule: "When you're bleeding a guy, you don't bleed him dry right away. You wait, so you can bleed him next week, and the week after." Before I can get nervous at the prospect of a leech-related subplot, Christopher goes on to tell them, "If any more Porsches disappear, make it two towns over, and I want a taste." "You're the man," answers the less hairy Monkey Boy (a.k.a. Mr. A Bronx Tale), and I'm forced to add the "now, dawg" part myself.
Janice and Meadow arrive at Livia's hospital room. Janice leaves to get something from the cafeteria, and Meadow goes over to chat. Fade to later, as Meadow tries to feed her something off a tray. "Just let me die," croaks Livia, and while it probably doesn't sound like it here, major heh. I'm saving my Nancy Marchand tribute for the real season-premiere recap, but man, she will be missed. She goes on, "I saw a light. Voices calling out to me." Meadow pretty much ignores this and asks if she's heard from Tony. "That one. He blames me for everything," she says. "Yeah, me too," responds Meadow, and they hug. It's a nice moment that gets spoiled by the hideously awful dubbing of Meadow's next line, which is also too lame to repeat here. Livia tells Meadow to take what's in the drawer beside her bed, and it turns out to be a ring that belonged to her (Livia's) grandmother. "It's so you won't forget me." Meadow is obviously moved by this gesture, and there's more hugging and crying.
