Tony starts to tell another joke, beginning with, "And then for the capper..." Get it? Do you? Ahh, dental humor. Always so incisive. It amazes me, however, how common the loose-tooth dream actually seems to be. I've spent way more time than I ever wanted to on dream interpretation websites this week, and teeth are by far one of the most common requests. Who knew? Besides everyone having the dreams, of course. Tony spits out yet another tooth, and then Annette Bening says that they "know all about" him, and "think that it's great." "Well, that's a relief," sighs Carmela, and I definitely don't have a hard time believing that this would be one of Tony's deepest anxieties. "Speaking of dental school," adds Annette, "people always told us that Finn would never amount to much." "He won't," replies Carmela, and it's here that Finn is replaced by AJ for one quick shot. Heh. "I think the die is cast," she continues, and then Makazian and Annette start bickering about keeping the family secrets. While that's going on, Charmaine comes over and thrusts her breasts into Tony's face as she grinds pepper onto his salad. After a moment or two of awkward silence, Annette turns to Meadow and asks if she plays an instrument. "I was in Chamber Singers," she answers, and Makazian adds that he used to sing in the Navy Glee Club. And once again, I remember a line about that, but I just can't find it in the recaps. Makazian suddenly breaks into an a cappella rendition of "Three Times A Lady," and yes, it goes on absolutely forever. At first everyone looks happy and amused, but eventually boredom sets in, and you can actually see them wondering when he's going to shut up. I have to give props to Edie Falco's plastic happy face, though, because it's absolutely perfect. While the singing continues, Tony is suddenly struck by a thought, and he leans back behind Carmela and taps Annette on the shoulder. "You're Annette Bening?" he asks. She nods like he's a crazy autograph seeker, and Tony laughs and says, "I thought so." He's totally proud of himself for getting it, too, which is good, because apparently a lot of people didn't catch it until then anyway.
