Tony goes to visit Valentina in the hospital, and they've got him all decked out in surgical scrubs and a cute little shower cap. Valentina, however, doesn't look cute at all. She's all bandaged up, with burns on her face and arms. She's also obviously heavily drugged, because she thinks Tony is the doctor who's going to be operating on her. She's worried about her hair, but Tony assures her that it will all grow back normally, and that she'll "look the same as [she] always did." "Fuck you," replies Valentina, in what may be her only lucid line of the entire scene. Because we're also trying to humanize Tony now after his outbursts last week, a nurse shows up to tell him that visiting hours are over, so he doesn't have to look like a dick for leaving on his own. "I'm gonna take care of everything," he promises. "The doctor bills, a wig, whatever." Well, if it's a wig she needs, I can think of at least one extra that Tony may have lying around.
Angelo, meanwhile, has gone shopping at a [product-placed chain store] and purchased some sort of oversized toy tractor for one of his grandkids. Heh. As soon as I saw that, I knew he was a goner. It's too big to fit fully in the trunk (unlike Angelo himself, but more on that in a minute), so he just drives off with the lid flapping in the breeze. Incidentally, would you like to guess what's playing on his car stereo? Yeah. It's "Peanuts," by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Oy. I think it's possible that this entire episode was conceived with the sole purpose of driving me insane. Or maybe just giving me carpal tunnel. Ow. As Angelo cruises down the darkened streets of wherever the hell he's supposed to be right now, another car appears behind him and starts honking frantically. Angelo waves them by, and the car does swing out to pass. But then it cuts right back in front of him and slams on the brakes, leading to a minor fender-bender and much annoyance from Angelo. But here's my question: how on Earth would he not recognize Phil Leotardo's car? I mean, EVERYONE knows what Phil drives, right? Phil and his brother Billy hop out of Phil's car and spin some yarn about Johnny Sack wanting a sit down. Angelo is no fool, so he refuses to get into the car with them, and instead offers just to follow them to Johnny's place. That doesn't do him very much good, however, because Billy whips out a garrote, and drags Angelo by the neck over to Phil's trunk, which has been helpfully pre-lined with some clear plastic sheeting. They load him in, punch him a few times to get him to stop struggling, and then Phil pulls out a pistol with an attached silencer. "You couldn't fucking retire?" asks Philly Batts, as he pumps a pair of slugs into Angelo's head. And I sure do hope that plastic sheeting is bullet-proof, because otherwise Phil would have just blown up his gas tank and everything else in a fifty-foot radius. Anyway, Phil closes the trunk, and then whines to Billy about the damage from the fender-bender. "Look at this shit," he gripes. "You know the work I just had?" Heh. And also, hmm. Is that giant spare tire on the trunk supposed to be another fat joke?
