Tony asks again if Paulie told Johnny about the joke. Paulie just looks at Tony and then says sort of angrily that it wasn't him, almost challenging Tony to ask him again. Tony finally puts down his plate of food, and a few tense moments pass. Tony asks if Paulie wants a drink as Paulie continues to rub his stomach. Tony stands and looks out at the water. Paulie moves to the back of the boat. Tony struggles with his decision and glances down at a knife they were using to cut up bait. He reaches down and...tosses a drink to Paulie, who barely catches it and complains that it hurt. So I guess that's over. That was kind of a weak ending to the scene, but I guess the point is that, once again, Tony has a hard time deciding between being a boss and being a human being.
At Loony Bin Lockup, the inmates are having a singalong to John Denver's "Country Roads." Carter watches, a look of devilment on his face, and he crumples up a piece of paper, which he tosses at the piano player. Junior gives him a look. Carter watches for another moment to see if Junior will do anything, then finally bumrushes Junior and starts beating him. He slams Junior's head against the wall until the orderlies arrive to break it up. The camera focuses on Junior's broken glasses on the floor. So it looks like Carter chose the violence while Tony chose nonviolence. I don't think it's a coincidence that those two scenes were juxtaposed.
Paulie arrives back at his apartment and yells out, "What does it take to get something to eat?" Who is he talking to? He hears rustling noises in the kitchen and walks in to find Pussy cooking something. Paulie asks, "When my time comes, tell me, will I stand up?" Cut to Paulie waking up alone in his apartment. He sits up, disturbed by his dream. Cut to Paulie pumping iron with a crazed look on his face. I don't even know what that meant, except maybe that Paulie is trying to be ready for when his time comes.
