Vito's in the little New Hampshire library, talking on his cell phone to a casino or something, asking whether they have slot machines. He hangs up, and sneaks a bottle of booze (which is already almost empty) out of his pocket, and then takes a swig. So Vito's getting bored with the straight life, just like Tony. Jimbo (formerly Morgan Spurlock) walks up and is shocked that Vito is sitting there doodling and looking at books about motorcycles instead of writing his book. Um, it's called research? When you're a writer, anything you do when you're not writing is research. Four hours playing games on Yahoo? Research. Re-alphabetizing your CD collection? Research. You never know! Someday you might write a story about...a writer who procrastinates. Theoretically. Anyway, Vito pulls the research line, but Jimbo says that he found a racetrack trifecta ticket in his trash. What? That could be research. I'm totally on Vito's side here.
Jimbo storms out of the library, and Vito chases after him. Jimbo wonders if Vito is even a sports writer, and exposits that he's asked Vito to move in with him, but, due to Vito's lies, he's now reconsidering. Vito lights a cigarette to buy himself some time, and Jimbo starts to walk away. Vito calls him back and admits that he's not a writer, and that he's not from Scottsdale; he's actually from New Jersey. Vito explains that "some shit went down" and he "had to leave." Well, that's one way of putting it. Vito admits that he left his home, his contracting business, and his wife and kids. Jimbo smells the alcohol on Vito's breath and calls him on it. Vito says that his life is difficult, he misses home, and he's running out of money. And now Jimbo is just one more complication. Jimbo asks him about the wife and kids, and Vito says that he's been divorced for a few years, because, really, what's one more lie? Vito makes Jimbo promise not to tell anyone, ever. Jimbo reminds Vito that he was married, too, and adds that he can probably get Vito some work as a handyman.
Ginny Sack opens her front door (wearing a robe and a turban) to find all the Jersey wives there yelling "Surprise!" Apparently, it's Ginny's birthday. The New York wives couldn't throw her a party? Janice, Carmela, Gab, Angie, and Rosalie (yay!) filter in. Rosalie is carrying a bottle of wine, and her hair is an architectural masterpiece. And she's wearing leopard-print pants. Or possibly python. And I think they're leather. Could we get a Rosalie Aprile spinoff, please? As she walks in, Carmela calls out a hello to Sal Vitro, and when he barely acknowledges her, she complains that he's "such a mope."
