The Little Lord Loft. Jackie Jr. is holding court with a couple of friends, and the Ecstasy dealer from the Crazy Horse. One of the friends explains that they had an arrangement to sell there, but now some made guy named "Multi-something" is running the show. "I know Chris," imparts Jackie, trying to sound as important as he can. He's also mimicking Brando a bit with his posture and arm movements, which is yet another subtle nod to the way in which so much of mob culture is shaped by the movies, rather than the other way around. "What's your name again?" he asks the Russian, who replies, "Matush." "I asked your name, not where Furio kicked you," replies Jackie, before agreeing to fix the situation. Or at least that's what he should have said.
Headmaster Weasel's office. He intones that the standard punishment for an infraction like AJ's would be expulsion, citing the school's "zero tolerance" policy. He then goes on to state that AJ's sentence will be suspended, based on his "academic performance, and his participation in extracurricular sport." "So it's not exactly zero tolerance, is it?" snarks Carmela. Tony suggests detention, but Headmaster Weasel explains that "a lawsuit forced us to cancel our detention program." Tony is reduced to pleading, "But he's off the football team, right?" Headmaster Weasel weasels out of that one too, claiming that "studies at Harvard, as well as other places" show that sports are good for the kids. A priest in a gym suit who's been standing in the corner the whole time gushes about the great "leadership skills" that AJ shows on the field, and I don't know why everyone is so keen about keeping the kid on the team, especially since the only play we've ever seen him make was pure luck, and he fainted the next day in practice. The headmaster suggests that AJ's punishment be handed out parentally, and Tony is forced to warn AJ to wipe the smirk off his face. Afterwards, Tony and Carmela bicker as they back walk to their car sans AJ. Tony swears to punish the kid as harshly as possible, insisting that "he ain't getting off that easy." Except for the fact that he's already back in school, that is.
