Tony goes to his car and spots a disheveled John Heard, a.k.a. Detective Vin Makazian, taking a whiz in the bushes. Tony throws a pebble at him and then bitches him out for defiling the property: "My mother lives here." Makazian shrugs that it's an hour from his office and it's "inconvenient," and Tony sarcastically apologizes and suggests meeting down by Makazian's precinct instead. Makazian snaps, "What've you got for me?" Tony hands him a piece of paper with Melfi's name on it; he wants to know her routine, her background, but when Makazian asks why, Tony tells him it's "none of your fuckin' business." Makazian vents a little about his low income and two alimonies, and Tony tells him he doesn't want Melfi touched or bothered, "just the who-when-why, that's it." More back-and-forth about Makazian's gambling debts and whether Tony will lay off the vig. Makazian angles for, and gets, a macaroon.
