Maison de Moltisanti. Chris and Adriana are curled up in bed, having one of those "previous lovers" conversations that never, ever works out well. For those interested in obscure Sopranos sexual trivia, the oldest woman Christopher ever slept with was "Chucky Parecio's mother" and the most famous person Adriana ever did was Penn (of Penn & Teller fame). When Christopher discovers that said tryst took place in an Atlantic City ladies' room, he freaks out and starts getting angry. So angry, in fact, that the two of them end up engaged in a slap fight in the middle of the bedroom. I don't see why he's so upset. It's not like she said David Copperfield. Or David Blaine. Or even Sean Penn, Chris Penn, or the less successful, yet still non-mythical Michael Penn. It could be worse, is all I'm saying. Anyway, the hysteria is interrupted by a knock at the door, and Christopher pulls a pistol out of the nightstand before heading to answer it. It's just Paulie and Patsy Parisi, though, and they immediately come on in and make themselves right at home. Paulie calls out to Adriana, apologizing for the inconvenience, but he still makes her get dressed and come wait in the living room with Christopher. When Paulie spots the shoes, he remarks that his significant other is a size ten (and if it's still the girl with the kid from last season, he's even more wrong than Chris was), so he'll be taking his taste now, thank you very much. While he continues his search, Adriana is depressed at the thought of losing her free shoes (and by the way, my heavenly reference to just such an idea from two weeks ago is now starting to look positively prophetic). Chris looks up through the half-open door to the bedroom and catches Paulie sniffing his partner's panties (Chris's partner, not Paulie's, although the picture of Patsy Parisi in panties is pretty much priceless), and instantly gets quite peeved. After much internal debate (or as most people like to call it, "procrastination"), I've decided that "panties" is not a dirty word, and I should feel free to use it with impunity for the remainder of the recap. And while I've never partaken myself, I have spent enough time in college-dorm laundry rooms to know that Paulie isn't alone with that particular fetish.
