So, of course, we cut to Tony and Valentina having regular sex. Well, it's not completely regular. In fact, her head seems to be just below the bottom of the frame, so it's looking like I might have blown my wad a little too early with that Head of the Class joke. Yeah. I know. I'm very, very sorry. She finally clambers up beside him and rubs her fingers through his chest hair while she asks what made him change his mind and call her. "I just had to get my head into a place where I felt that I could really commit," he says, before promising to lavish all the care on her that she deserves.
Unfortunately, however, that's a promise he may not be able to keep. Tony visits the storage bin, and is more than a little shocked when he discovers that the money is missing. Uh oh. Looks like someone won't be getting any more diamond horseshoes for a while.
Green Grove. Cookie meets with Principal Chucky and his wife, and Chucky is sporting a major cast on his right arm. Chucky's wife is sporting a major chip on her own shoulder, and she basically threatens Cookie with life in a Salvation Army home if she's not nicer to Mama Walnuts. Oh, please. There is no way in hell I believe that these people would just give in to Paulie like this. I mean, I get where they were going with the whole "everyone is just like their mother" bit, but this plot was just way too far-fetched. Not even seeing Vinnie Delpino again was enough to make it worthwhile.
