After a brief cut, The Tony Soprano Magical Mystery Tour Of Greater Newark And Its Environs resumes across the street from the rundown houses he's just bought. It looks like a pretty crappy neighborhood, and Tony stops scanning for threats in his rearview mirror just long enough to ask AJ if he's scared. "Right," replies the kid. "Like I haven't seen places like this before." Yeah, and when you saw one last week you nearly pissed your pants. Tony explains that he bought the houses as an investment, and repeats his new "buy real estate" mantra to AJ a few times in the hopes that it will sink in. Before he can say anything else, however, a few local residents come over, and Tony rolls down the window to speak with them. "You five-oh?" the guy asks, getting a sarcastic smirk in response. "Yeah, I'm Starsky and this is Hutch," says Tony. After he politely declines an offer of "smoke, crack, or crank," the guy tells Tony that there's "no eyein' if you ain't buyin'," which prompts the woman with him to add, "Unless you want something, motherfucker, get the fuck off our street." "Oh, the language on you!" exclaims Tony. "You blow your father with mouth?" Heh. AJ, by the way, is loving this confrontation. Tony tries to explain that he just wanted to show his kid the old neighborhood, but Random Resident flashes his gun and snarls, "This is our neighborhood now, you guinea motherfucker." "Yeah. I can see that," sighs Tony, as he puts the car in gear. Just as they pull away, AJ gets a big smile on his face and says, "So, that's a crack ho." Bwah!
