Tony hangs out at the Bacala house, waiting for dinner and watching football with Bobby. Tony's annoyed because his recliner doesn't recline, giving him just one more thing to put in the negative column of the mental scorecard he's clearly creating against Bobby. Janice comes in and hands the two guys beers, and says Carmela will be along shortly. Bobby asks when Barb and Tom will get there, and Janice says that she asked them to bring wine, and they'll see how long that takes. See? More tantalizing information about Barb and Tom. I'm fascinated by them. Why does it take them a long time to get wine? Are they idiots? Or do they just seize on any excuse to show up late to dinner and leave early because they hate the Soprano family? Janice asks Bobby whether he took his Vicodin, and then snatches the beer out of his hands. Tony adds that to his "Bobby is weak" tally, and then tries to make conversation about the football game. Bobby Jr. walks by and says that he's going over to his friend's house to watch the Chargers. Bobby can't believe his son doesn't want to watch the Giants play, and Bobby Jr. says that he hates "the fucking Giants." Father and son continue to argue, and Bobby Jr. points out that AJ didn't have to come to Sunday dinner. Janice shows up and mock-sweetly points out that AJ's is working, and Bobby Jr. is free to go get a job, too, as soon as he reads his last report card out loud to everyone. Tony looks curious, but Bobby Jr. doesn't move. Janice tells him to go finish his Spanish report before dinner, and he takes off up the stairs, dejected. Janice tells her stepdaughter to set the table for dinner, and she does. So Janice clearly wears the pants in the family -- the kids listen to her, and don't listen to Bobby. Now, that could be because Janice is fucking terrifying, and damaging those kids for life, but I don't know if Tony sees it that way, because it's just more evidence for his "Bobby is weak" campaign.
Tony tells Melfi about Bobby's injury, and admits that he's disgusted with what goes on in Janice's family. Melfi wonders whether it's just bad luck, or if Tony thinks Janice deserves what she gets. Tony doesn't know, but he does know that Janice attracts drama and "creams over the misery." Ew. Melfi asks simply, "Does she remind you of anyone?" Tony doesn't answer and starts going on and on how, when they were growing up, Janice was beautiful and always had tons of guys after her. Melfi wonders whether Tony was "sexually threatened," and Tony is disgusted that she thinks he wanted to fuck his mother and also his sister. Melfi says that it's normal to have sexual feelings for a sibling early on, and that it was probably mutual. Tony is still grossed out. Melfi changes tacks and wonders why Tony and Janice had a strong bond as kids, but don't now. Tony says that Janice fought with Livia and took off as soon as she could, something he never would have done because he did what he was told. Melfi asks Tony what he got from his father, and Tony thinks she's talking about success and money. Melfi thinks there's something else. I think Melfi's referencing the anxiety attacks or various other psychological problems, but Tony ignores that and says that he ended up having to deal with his mother for years, while Janice got to take off, live life, and have fun. And now Janice is back, expecting a piece of the pie that she didn't earn. Tony concludes, "She gets nothing! 'Cause I got the scars! It's mine!" Melfi looks a little shocked at the anger and is probably thinking, "I can't believe I didn't bring up his sister like three years ago! This is a goldmine of repressed feelings."
