The Ride

Paulie tosses and turns in bed, finally waking up at 3:00 AM. He gets up and calls the doctor's office, desperate for his biopsy results. When his regular doctor's not available, Paulie gives up. Instead, he heads for the Bing, which is closed at this time of night. He stops, turns, and has a vision of the Virgin Mary up on the stage. I don't know. Except I do know that Paulie has issues with women.

Paulie sits in the back room, freaked out. He hears a knock at the door, and lets the guy from Pennsylvania in. Oh, this was one of the orders that Tony gave Paulie earlier, in the bathroom. I forgot to mention that.

The statue of St. Elzear is covered with cash. Carmela and Tony walk through the festival with Bobby, Janice, and Nica. They all say how quickly the festival went. Nica spots the teacup ride and starts crying. I notice that Janice isn't wearing her neckbrace any more. Paulie's money must have cured her nerve damage. Janice thinks Nica is crying because she wants to go on the ride. She's really probably fucking terrified. Or maybe not, because when Janice sets her down, Nica immediately goes for the ride and cries when she can't get closer to it. Bobby runs over to her and offers her some candy to get her to stop crying. Well, now we know where Bobby Jr. gets it from. Tony walks over and plays with Nica, which gets her to start giggling and start crying. The scene goes on forever, and is quite reminiscent of Marlon Brando's death scene in The Godfather, so I totally thought Tony was going to keel over. But nope! Just Tony and Nica, spinning around, for about thirty-seven minutes straight, and no payoff. Yet.

Aunt Ma sits in her room, watching Lawrence Welk. Paulie shows up at her door, and she tells him that she doesn't want to argue. He walks in and silently sits down on the plastic-covered couch. Aunt Ma asks, "You want some cookies?" Paulie shakes his head, so Aunt Ma sits next to him. Outside, the wind blows through the leaves on the tree. Paulie looks sad. Did he find out his biopsy results? Or is he just worried about said results? I guess we'll find out next week.
