Back in the car, Tony explains to Christopher about the hit on Carmine. Chris is impressed that they've got Johnny Sack's backing, and Tony reminds him of how hurt Johnny was when Carmine failed to support him during The War of the Ninety-Five Pound Mole. "Life's funny, huh," opines Christopher, basking in the newly-headless irony of it all. He then suggests using some "black guys" he knows that could provide plausible deniability for the hit. "Are they trustworthy, these guys?" asks Tony. Chris assures him that they are, and Tony instructs him to "make sure," while delivering the now-patented look that means "making sure" will involve a significant amount of gunplay.
It seems that into everyone's life a little shirtless Moltisanti must fall. It's probably not as good as shirtless Facinelli, for those of you who are into that sort of thing, but I suppose it will have to do. He and Tony are down at the beach house when the lawyer next door comes over to find out who's loitering on his property. The guy is played by Bruce Altman, who's made a career out playing smarmy guys, and with good reason. He is pretty smarmy. Anyway, Tony introduces himself to Lawyer Bruce, who doesn't even bat an eyelash when he hears the presumably recognizable name "Tony Soprano." They banter about the house and the other buyers for a few minutes, and the upshot is that Lawyer Bruce calls off the original deal, and agrees to sell to Tony.
Back at Maison de Soprano, Carmela rolls over in bed to take a call from the real estate agent. She's ecstatic to learn that they got the house, and we immediately cut to her, Tony, and AJ pulling up in front of the place. Carmela seems to be feeling much better as she exclaims over how beautiful everything is, but then Meadow shows up with her boyfriend, her babushka, and her bad attitude to spoil everything. "Oh my God, this is nice," she says, as if she didn't believe such a thing was possible coming from her parents. Shut up, Meadow. "You'll inherit this," says Tony as Foreshadowing leads them inside.
