Cut to the hospital, where Tony and Carmela arrive to find Joey slumped in the waiting room. He slowly explains that Justin (the son) was unable to breathe for more than five minutes, so it's possible that his brain was damaged. Then he glares over at the other kid, who's also waiting there with his parents. Tony reminds him that the whole thing was just an accident, but Joey doesn't seem convinced. Just then the surgeon walks in, speaking with what appears to be a random husband and wife. Joey runs over and says, "Please allow me to introduce myself," which will be important later. Then the "wife" bitterly performs the introduction for him, explaining that Joey is her ex-husband and Justin's biological father. All you people out there who were wondering how Joey managed to impregnate Tracee should take note. The ex-wife appears to be exactly the sort of person you'd expect to have been willing to marry Joey. In other words, she's a shrewish bitch. She immediately starts blaming Joey for everything, and things quickly escalate into a shoving match. It gets so bad that Tony has to intervene, and he ends up pinning Joey against the wall in a Chokehold Of Foreshadowing. Joey's anger quickly turns to tears, and he begins sobbing into Tony's chest.
In another wing of what I'm assuming is the same hospital, Uncle Junior is preparing to check out. As he dresses, Melvoin and Tony explain the new plan: Junior will pretend to be losing his sanity, and Tony will provide a nurse who will go along with the scheme. This means that the judge will have to rule him unfit to continue, and therefore dismiss all charges. "Crazy like a fox, my little nephew," smiles Junior, as he slaps on a jaunty beret. Bobby Bacala, meanwhile, is wholeheartedly impressed with the muffin basket Melvoin's firm sent over. "It's the least we could do," replies Mel sheepishly. Hey! Where's the hell is MY muffin basket? I certainly think I've earned one.
