Janice finally gets to the real reason why she came down there: to pick a fight. She bitches that usually marrying the boss's sister is a step up, but Bobby still isn't officially a captain. It's funny how Janice is the only female on the show who openly discusses Family business with Tony; everyone else uses euphemisms and shades of meaning. Janice lists all the things that Tony picks on Bobby about: his weight, his model railroading. Tony yells, "He's a grown man." Janice spits back, "Oh, but it's okay for Neil Young." Tony points out that Neil Young owns Lionel, which is true. I saw a special on it one time. Nica makes a noise, and Janice yells at her to take care of her things because the baby dropped a stuffed animal. She's less than a year old. I'm so sure she dropped the animal on purpose. Janice wonders where Tony's anger and hatred for her comes from, and I could take a guess or two, but I'll let Janice list her faults: "I know I'm not perfect. I know I annoy people. I think about you, lying in that hospital bed. I cried for you. I sat with you." So in addition to being imperfect and annoying, Janice also knows how to lay down a killer guilt trip. Tony sighs and sincerely says that he knows, and he appreciated it, but they both know that Janice would complain no matter what he did. Janice, near tears, gives her final rejoinder: "There's nothing holding us together but DNA."
