Vinny Delpino, Silvio's driver, shows up to Silvio's house to pick him up. Sil's wife, Gabriella, answers the door wearing a one-piece, hooded, zip-front fuchsia jumpsuit. Pick any one of those adjectives in front of the word "jumpsuit" to decipher where that outfit started to go horribly wrong. While Gab is busy getting coffee for the guys, Vinnie and Sil have a quiet conversation about the Columbians showing up dead and two guys they know scoring "a million plus."
Upstairs, Silvio finishes up his daily ablutions with a puff on his inhaler. Gab walks in and expresses sympathy over his asthma acting up. I just noticed that Gab has a fake Gerbera daisy pinned in her chignon, tinted to match her jumpsuit, natch. The costumer for this show must have so much fun. Gab tells Sil that she's really proud of him for being acting boss. Sil says that he never wanted this much responsibility, but Gab keeps pumping him up and telling him what a great boss he would make. Gab asks what happens if Tony doesn't recover. Sil doesn't answer at first, as Gab helps him with his cufflinks. Sil finally says that he's never told anybody this, but that when Jackie Aprile Sr. was dying, he floated the idea of Sil stepping up as boss, and Sil turned it down. Gab keeps pushing the idea that Sil wants to be boss. Sil says that he prefers to stay behind the scenes and give advice and strategy. Gab reminds him, "The times make the man, honey. Not the other way around." When did Gabriella turn into Lady Macbeth?
Silvio arrives at the hospital and finds out that Tony's condition hasn't changed. Vito starts in on the Roseville sports book immediately. Sil tells Vito to bring Bobby over and that they'll resolve it, and then takes another puff on his inhaler. Paulie arrives, and Vito immediately asks for his cut from the Columbian takedown. Paulie tells him to chill out. Silvio starts complaining about all the flowers around, saying that they're aggravating his asthma. I think he's right, if you substitute "wiseguys" for "flowers".
While Sil grabs some coffee, Bobby and Vito make their argument to him over who should get the Roseville sports book. Bobby says that it was Junior's originally, so it should rightfully come to Bobby. Vito points out that Gene had been running it for three years, and that Gene was under Vito. Bobby and Vito continue to bicker over it. Silvio asks how much money it generates, and the two can't even agree on that. Silvio sips his coffee and finally rules that it's Bobby's for the time being, but that he has to kick 20\% up to Vito. They want to know how long this arrangement will last, and Silvio doesn't really have an answer. Man, bad idea. His uncertainty seems like a sign of weakness and indecisiveness. If Silvio wants the guys to see him as a leader, he needs to act confident about his decisions. Maybe Paulie could loan him a copy of The Art of War.
