Das Sopranohaus. Tony sits by the pool, smoking a cigar. He flashes back to sitting on the porch at Uncle Pat's house and smoking cigars with Diet Tony. Then he flashes back to the two of them as teenagers, smoking cigarettes. The guy they got to play Teen Steve Buscemi is a remarkable likeness. Tony looks upset as he ponders his options.
Agent Sanseverino goes to her bosses and reports that Ade won't wear a wire, but that she thinks she might get Christopher to flip. Agent Harris asks what has changed, and Agent Sanseverino reports that Christopher's been having problems with Tony. The other agent says that information is supported by wiretaps -- "C.I. 12" (Ray Curto?) mentioned it also -- and that it has something to do with Diet Tony. Cubitso asks what Christopher would want. Agent Sanseverino says he has an interest in screenwriting, and the head agent says dryly that he'll put in a call to Sam Goldwyn. I assumed he was being sarcastic, but the Eagle-Eyed Forum Posters pointed out that Sam Goldwyn Jr. is a movie producer, so who knows? Agent Harris asks what Adriana was promised, and Agent Sanseverino says that she mentioned immunity and relocation for Adriana and Christopher. Cubitso tells Agent Sanseverino to tell Adriana she has until 9:00 AM Monday to bring Christopher in, or they'll turn her over to the Long Branch Police Department. Agent Sanseverino nods, excited that this investigation is finally moving forward.
Silvio walks into the back room at the Bing and says that Tony has a call. Nearby, Paulie and two other guys (one of whom may be Ray Curto) are playing cards. Tony gives a look like, "Diet Tony?" and Sil shakes his head and says that it's Jimmy Petrille. Tony picks up the phone and Jimmy says, "That tennis match with those guys? My guy won." Jimmy adds that the son dropped out. Tony asks if the son got hurt, and Jimmy says it wasn't like that; they just settled it. Tony hangs up and tells the guys playing cards that Little Carmine dropped out, and that Johnny Sack and Little Carmine worked out a deal. Paulie is disgusted, and calls Little Carmine "a fucking pussy." Silvio mutters that Johnny Sack is the boss of a family now. Tony says there was a time when it would have been great to have Johnny as the boss, because he's "smart as a fucking whip" and "he used to be a pragmatist." Silvio darkly says, "Some people are better at being number twos." I don't know why that line seemed important, but it did. I just wanted to note it in case it comes up later. Paulie points out that Johnny's ego is going to go through the roof.
