FBI headquarters. Or at least I'm assuming it's FBI headquarters, because there are a lot of FBI agents there. It is, however, a completely different set from the last time we were here. In one of the back rooms, Ray Curto is meeting with Agent RICO Suave to help transcribe some of the dialogue he recorded while wearing a wire. Yes, you read that right. After two full seasons of nothing, they've finally addressed Ray the Rat. Halle-fucking-lujah! And I'm totally taking that as a shout-out, because I've bitched about Ray like no one else on this Earth, and also because HE'S TRANSCRIBING FUCKING DIALOGUE. I mean, come on! That's what I do, right? The dialogue in question comes from Tony's famous capo conference in the Season 4 premiere. Much to my utter dismay, however, they don't play the tape long enough to hear Silvio deliver his all-time classic line naming the only two recession-proof industries: "Certain aspects of show business, and our thing." Hee! They do, however, take great pains to make sure they correctly transcribe "crack fucking heads" instead of "crack fucking legs." I can't even count how many times I've made that mistake.
In another office, Agent Not Nicknamed At The Moment and Agent L-O-L-A-Lola watch footage from a surveillance camera that they've had surreptitiously mounted outside the Crazy Horse. In what I'm taking as yet another shout-out to my incessant bitching, Agent Still Not Nicknamed Yet goes out of her way to point out Paulie's magically reappearing car arriving in the parking lot. Interestingly, there's a line here in the closed captioning that must have gotten edited out, because Agent Lola is supposed to say something about a Chevy with Rhode Island plates. I seriously hope that means we'll be seeing the Atwell Boys again, but somehow I doubt it. Heck, I'm surprised we even saw Agent Lola again, considering that she ran off with Joey Pants to go work undercover in a different field office. I guess they must have figured that recasting with Fairuza Balk would be too confusing.
