Over with the New York crew, Frank Vincent is telling jokes about Jesus on the cross, which strikes me as the sort of behavior that's appropriate just about anywhere, but especially at your boss's funeral. Johnny Sack disengages himself from the crowd of laughing wiseguys, and heads over to join Little Carmine by the coffin. Carmine Jr. already seems pretty miffed about something, and he leads Johnny over into a little alcove and immediately starts bitching him out over the Opus Dei medallion that we saw Carmine Sr. holding in his hand. Now, as some of you may know, I tend to quote the Bible a lot in these recaps, so it might surprise you to learn that my first thoughts on hearing the words "Opus Dei" involved penguins and Richard Dreyfuss. But that's just me. Anyway, all I know about Opus Dei is that expressing an opinion on it in this recap is likely to get me even more hate mail than usual, and also possibly a good whipping. So let's just move on, shall we? The argument between Johnny and Little Carmine escalates to the point where they're shouting, and everyone out in the main area can hear them. Johnny insists that he knows best what Carmine would have wanted, and adds that Little Carmine said himself that Johnny was "like a son" to the man. Little Carmine spits back that he was only being polite, and now I'm wondering if a son can just outright disown another son-by-proxy like that, without going through the father. Or the mother. Or West Virginia. Whatever. Oh, and by the way? The doctor was his mother!
