Back at Casa di Soprano, Mr. DeAngelis is giving plumbing advice. At the other end of the table, my narcoleptic doppelganger is fast asleep in his chair. Incidentally, NBC's actually got a sitcom called My Narcoleptic Doppelganger bring prepped to take over for The Weber Show next year on Thursday nights. Tony breaks off a bit of a roll and wings it at him, and everyone starts giggling. Everyone except Janice, that is, who points out that "narcolepsy is an ASDA-certified dyssomnia." Aaron doesn't even open his eyes. The doorbell rings, and it's Jackie Jr. Meadow's eyes light up as Carmela introduces him to everyone, including the now suddenly conscious Aaron, who asks, "Have you heard the good news?" About my shout-out, you mean? Yeah, we have. Jackie, however, hasn't, so Aaron clarifies: "He is risen." Like most people, I'd imagine, at least half the clocks in my apartment are not yet adjusted for Daylight Savings Time. Of course, that still doesn't explain why it's Thanksgiving in April, or why most of the turkey-day talk seems to center on Easter. Little Lord Fuckpants doesn't appear to be too concerned about the lack of holiday continuity, and proceeds to ask Meadow if she wants to go somewhere. She quickly invites him to join her at Hunter's, and then runs off to get her jacket. "A Soprano and an Aprile," gushes Janice, and you can actually see her face fall a second later when she realizes what she's saying. Aaron just looks sleepy. Like I said, it would have been the perfect shout-out.
Aaron Sorkin: I'm actually the same way with the speaking-the-title-out-loud thing.
David Chase: We know. You also like the big ensemble scenes.
Aaron Sorkin: Yeah, what do you got there, like seventeen people or so for dinner?
David Chase: Let's see, there's Tony, Silvio, Christopher, Aaron The Happy Wanderer plus of course their wives and girlfriends.
Aaron Sorkin: So basically it's the crackpots and these women.
David Chase: Don't be mocking my cast, there, buddy. You keep this up, and somebody's going to emergency, and somebody's going to jail.
Aaron Sorkin: Sorry. Hey, did you ever hear the one where the guy walks into a psychiatrist's office? Stop me if you've heard it before.
