He is Risen

This is so amazing! Hey! Oh, my god.
The way you just said hey to me.
You are so nice.
I mean, i knew that the first day you sawme.
Hug me! You ha ve to try it.
I am so not depressed anymore.
Try what? Ecstasy! Where did you get it? Your friend! What the fuck is he doing at columbia? God, he's fucking cute! Our families are friends , i've known him forever.
You like that? I choose you! Having fun? Not as muc h as caitlin.
You see the eyes she had on me? The lid, dude.
She's from okla- fuckin'- homa.
So, jackie, you're in a frat now? Rutgers chapter, since freshman year.
I came up here to see you.
Got any more x? For you, the first hit's free.
Just don't tell your dad.
I don't even talk to him anymore.
Read'em and suck my dick! Yes, yes! Yes, baby! right there, that's mine.
Ho, he's still got the dice? I own these fuckin' dice.
You're makin ' me a rich man, ralphie boy.
The boss.
How are ya? What can i get ya guys? Fuckin' faccia di merda, he don't come say hello? What's this, a new suit, huh? Hey, t how are ya? On' how ya doin'? What's wrong with you? The skip's here.
I'm on a roll here.
You'll be on a slab you keep it up.
Hey, come here.
Hey, ton'.
I'm sorry, this fuckin' guy.
Hello, anthony.
You look good.
Want a drink? Another time, anthony.
Another time.
Let's whack this cocksucker and be done with it.
I'm here to enjoy myself.
I'm so fuckin' hard.
No, jackie, don't.
Meadow.
Meadow, wake up.
I'm so sleepy.
You drank too much fuckin' tequila.
C'mon, i can't stop now.
"Another time, anthony"? Cocksucker turns his back on the boss? That i couldn't believe.
He's lucky i didn't put one in his fuckin' head! On that front, don't be surprised if paulie pops the question.
Ralphie's star is rising.
All those unions.
Paulie can't come near that kinda cash for us.
Ralphie's a good earner.
Guy like that loose cannon.
You'll be leaving your hou he'll pull a jack ruby on you.
Why'd i have to punch this fuckin' asshole? Frankly i was a little surprised.
You're gonna start on me now, huh? He disrespected "the bing".
So, he's barre d from the place.
He bashed that poor girl's brains in.
I hear you i know.
It was a tragedy.
The fact is though, she was not related to you by blood or marriage.
She was no t your goomata.
Ralphie's a made guy, ton'.
All things considered, he's got a legitimate beef.
Make him disappear or make nice.
You only got two choices.
I would suggest someth ing in the way of an apology.
Absolutely fuckin' not! Do something public that shows there's no bad blood.
Give him give him a piece of the casino.
We're partnered with new york on that and i don't want him that close to johnny sack.
You could bump him up to captain.
It's what he's bee n wanting, you know.
Ralphie a fuckin' captain over my dead body.
Thank you.
You see that shit before? The look on tony's face when i turned down that drink? Buy me a drink? Fuck you.
He knew it was wrong, what he did.
He is the boss, he could do what he wants.
Boss or no, you don't raise your hands to another made guy.
Joe mo from mulberry street, exact same situation.
He smacked that guy from north bergen around.
Huge problem.
Of course.
Rules are rules, otherwise, what? Fuckin' anarchy.
At the very least, tony owes you an apology.
The money i put in his pocket for construction alone, he should hit his knees, this prick.
What? You think i'm afraid of that fat fuck? No offense.
I could see if it was his daughter, or a niece of his, but all this over some dead whore.
He had to be fuckin' her.
No.
He knew you were fuckin' her.
That's why, that's how he is, like a dog with two bones.
I'm supposed to go over there for thanksgiving, me and ro, tony's.
Really? Fuck him and his turkey.
I oughta shove a drumstick up his ass.
Look who i caught sneaking in the fire door.
My parishioners might not understand i'm here to help feed the hungry.
Reverend.
Happy thanksgiving.
Madonn', who needs it? Oh, c'mon, turkey, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie? You gotta love all that.
That's because you never lived through the "walyo" version.
Major antipast' first.
Then soup, meatballs and scharol then the baked manigott', then the bird.
I love manicotti.
Turkeys are here.
There are some in here, too.
Thing with turkeys, they got no sense of direction.
They're on their way to food emporium and now look.
What's this i hear about ralph cifaretto? He refused to have a drink w ith you at the club? So? He refused the drink'cause h e's a despicable fuck that i bitch- slapp ed at a moment of very justified anger.
That sounds like a problem.
Happy thanksgiving to you and yours.
Yeah, you too.
Happy thanksgiving, reverend.
That mine? Ah, beautiful.
Look at that.
Ah, shit! What's the matter? That fuckin' asshole's supposed to come to thanksgiving with rosalie.
No way he'll show.
I'm gonna give him the option? That cocksucker shouldn't even be ther e in the first place.
Honey, i know you don't like to-- i know you don't like to be pinned down, but thanksgiving, it would be very nice to be able to tell carmela whether you're coming.
Who's gonna be there? Besides us? I don't know, carm's parents.
Great.
How about meadow? So, thanksgiving, who's all coming this year? You know, the usual.
Nana and grandpa chris and ade.
I think janice is bringing someone from her prayer group.
Um, and aunt ro and uncle ralph.
Jackie's probably not coming though, right? Oh, i don't know, why? Can't i just ask anything? Alright, take it easy.
I have class, i'll see you thursday.
Alright, bye.
Hello.
Hey, carm, it's ro.
God, that is so weird that you just called.
I just hung up with meadow and she was asking if jackie was coming for thanksgiving.
Oh, really? Jackie just asked me about her.
My radar's up.
Oh, you and those romance novels, rosalie.
Can you imagine the beautiful children those two would make, with those genes? Remember when meadow was born, what we said? Yes, we said a lot of things, ro.
Do me a favor, concentrate on that almond torte of yours, alright? I'm counting on you.
I'm looking for the recipe.
Alright, bye.
Here's the turkey.
Oh, my god, it's huge.
Good thing, i'm feeding an army this year.
Not as many as you think.
I need you to call rosalie and cancel with them.
Thanksgiving, why? Just do it, alright? Enough of this jetson's shit them coming over to mr.
Spacely's house for dinner.
I was just talking to her, what am i gonna say? Fine, i'll call.
And my excuse won't be nearly as nice as yours.
Goddamnit, tony.
What, your stomach still? Dr.
Akavi? Gloria trillo, globe mercedes.
Listen, a pre- owned You're the first person i thought of.
Wood trim package, gps with everything.
Only 7500 miles, i don't think it's gonna las t till saturday.
Tomorrow? Great.
No, i'm sorry, i can't, we're doing a sales meeting at lunch.
Okay, see ya bye.
You waiting for somebody in there? I got an appointment.
Did she double- book us? I'm usually thursday, but i had to reschedule because of the holiday.
This is when i usually come.
I'm trying to quit smoking.
Serial killer.
I murdered seven relationships.
Listen, you're here.
Why don't you take my appointment? Oh, no, no, i couldn't do that, no.
It would be my good deed for the day.
Flag on the play.
I'm pretty sure you said tuesday.
I did? I'll come back next we ek at the same time and no problemo.
I told her she could have my appointment.
Actually, it is a little difficult getting away from work.
See? I i could see you tonight at seven.
Yeah, yeah, thanks.
Okay.
How hard was that? Hello? Ro, it's carm.
This is so terrible to do on such short notice, but i just got off the phone with ma.
What's the matter? It's my father.
They had some troubling test results.
Something to do with his white blood cells.
Oh, my god.
Yeah, i know, uh they're gonna have to do further testing before they can be sure of the diagnosis.
Ma just wants to have a quiet thanksgiving.
She said that they would have it just the two of them, but-- they should be with their family.
I feel so awful giving you so little notice.
Don't be silly, i just wish there wa s something i could do.
Thank you, ro, that is so sweet.
Of course, i'll let you know when i know anything more.
Okay, take care, sweetheart.
Bye.
Alright, bye- bye.
Carm's father, he's sick.
She had to cancel thanksgiving.
It's three a.
M.
Bam, come wide awake.
Something specific? It's a management problem.
It's a situation with an underling.
Now, it's partly my fault.
But he never should've done what he did.
What was it? Could you tell me that? He caused the early retirement of somebody else.
The particulars aren't important, he fucked up.
Ordinarily, i would just, you know put him out to pasture.
But he's a very valuable piece of manpower.
Is it complicated by a personal relationship? I been reading that book you told me about.
"The art of war", by sun tzu.
Here's this guy a chinese general, wrote this thing 2400 years ago.
And most of it still applies today.
Balk the enemy's power.
Force him to reveal himself.
Uh, i have to ask are you in any sort of danger? No, can i go on? Most of the guys that i know, they read prince machiavelli.
I had carmela go and get the cliff notes once he's okay.
But this book is much better about strategy.
Listen, i wanted to ask you about the girl.
That woman that was here today.
The mercedes saleslady.
I'm very sorry about the confusion.
What does somebody like that need a shrink for? I can't talk about another patient.
Just it makes you wonder, that's all.
It's after hours, it's dark.
You want me to walk you to your car? No, thank you.
I have some work i have to catch up on here.
Anyone for a turtle? Hmm? Aaron, honey.
Hey! What? Oh.
Who's winning? Like you even know who's playin'.
It so happens that i do.
Detroit plays every thanksgiving.
What a shame barry sanders retired.
He's a real sweetheart.
A.
J.
, did you tell your dad and your grandpa how i served him when i waitressed at kenny roger's? Colonel sanders.
No, at kenny rogers, barry sanders.
Yeah, sh e served him.
Yes! Hey.
Yeah! Hey.
Hey.
Meadow, you know i lov e you more than anything in this world, right? Dad, what are you talking about? I know things haven't been so good with us lately, it's just if anything were eve r to happen to you everybody, come on, dinner! Go ahead.
I'll tell you, thi s turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
My two boys i was worried about the gravy, but ralph, honey, you feel alright? You hardly touched your manigott'.
I'm fine, christ, please, how many times? Jackie, honey, you don't have to stay for dessert if you don't want to.
Jesus chri st, a little manners, huh? What'd she just say? It's okay.
Why do n't you go see if meadow wants to go to a movie or something? Sure, ma.
Good dinner.
I'll tell ya a nifty trick.
Break off a piece of ohio kitchen match, in the screw hole, give the threads something to grab onto.
Yeah? 'Cause i used th e elmer's and th e knob still fell out.
Forget about it.
Narcolepsy is an a.
S.
D.
A.
Certified dissomnia.
It's no picnic.
Almost time for turkey sandwiches! I'll put more coffee on.
Oh, my god, who could that be? It's the boston strangler, jesus, ma.
I'll get it.
Hey.
Hey! Jackie, hi! I guess you know everybody here except for aaron, janice's friend.
Hey, aaron.
Have you heard the good news? He is risen.
Sit down, we're gonna have some turkey sandwiches.
Thanks, i already ate.
Just figured i'd see if meadow wanted to do something.
See a movie, whatever.
Sure, i mean, i was gonna go over to hunter's.
You wanna go? Whatever.
I'll be down in a sec.
A soprano and an aprile.
So, how's school, everything good, right? Yeah, gpa's up this quarter.
Why don't you just bag it, and come to dov's? Hunter's expecting me.
We can hang out all weekend.
We wouldn't have to like do anything.
I have to study.
Don't you have midterms too? I don't ev en go anymore.
What? Why? Organic chemistry? Nucleotides and shit.
You wanna know wha t i'm interested in? Men's fashion.
Not the faggy part of it, but like to be hugo boss.
Did you ever think of applying to fit? It's supposed to be a good school for that.
Come on, come to dov's.
I wanna be with you so bad.
I can't, jackie.
What? You won't go with me, but you'd go with that black guy? It's not that i don't want to go.
I've been hurt.
Just give me some time, okay? as street corners are heaps of crumbled wrath and masonry.
darling christmas gift-- three shuttles remain, now-- it makes me crazy, rosalie, all of them.
They're alread y hiring the caterers.
I mean, we were young when we got married, but those two? Emotionally they are much younger than we were.
until then, here's how you'll get your thrills.
The mercedes- benz coups and convertibles.
Earth to tony.
I'm thinking of getting one of those.
What, a mercedes? Go ahead, it's a cute car.
You hear? T disinvited ralph to thanksgiving.
No shit.
Madonn'.
Tony sees the big picture.
Oh, little paulie.
Hey, ton'.
This prick treating you okay? No complaints.
C'mon, little paulie, everybody, i'll buy you an egg cream.
C'mon, sit down.
So how are things going ove r there with our friend? The same, you know.
What's he saying about me? To me? Nothing, he knows better.
He's still breaking my balls though, about taking orders from me.
Plus now, with you and him and all that other shit there.
It's your job to make my job easier.
I'm not complaining, you asked me.
He's a frustrating guy.
I don't know how things are gonna go but i can't promis e he's gonna go away.
It's not just him.
This freon deal.
We're in the middle of a major renovation at the house, i got two kids getting ready for college soon.
Hey, hang in there , you're doing a good job.
Did you see those bags? Fuckin' stress is killing him.
Yeah.
Maybe he wants my fuckin' job.
it's a matter of honor this thanksgiving because everyone a t texas remembers turkey day two years ago sure you don't wanna eat ? i got a little turkey left.
No, than k you, dear.
Johnny, please, don't get up.
I'm off to physical therapy, hon.
Used to be some hoofer, poor thing.
Takes a terrible toll on the joints.
You heard what he di d with thanksgiving? It's not good, ralph.
Will you please tell m e what i did to this guy? Turn down a drink ? i wasn't thirsty! Ralph.
Ever since i'm back fr om miami he's up my ass! I'm earning with three hands here, and it's still not good enough to satisfy this cocksucker! And then he fuckin' hits me? I'm telling you, john.
He's not leaving me a lot of options here.
Don't talk crazy! You wanna commit suicide, pills are a lot easier.
What do you th ink carmine wouldsay if i wanted to switch families? Come w ith you guys.
Carmine doesn't know who you are.
You could tell him.
Ralph, listen to me.
As a friend i know tony can be difficult.
His father was the same, his uncle, they always need someone to demonize.
But new york and the sopranos have long- standing ties and that's not gonna change, not for you or anybody else.
You want me to be frank? You brought this on yourself with that girl.
"A", she was a whore, "b", she hit me.
And that wasn't my kid she was carrying.
It was the fucking coke, i should've never started with that shit.
Fuckin' miami, it' s all over the place.
Just tell anthony you're sorry.
I was high , i admit it, and i swear to christ i'm not doing it anymore.
"Tony, i'm sorry.
" Fuck that, what good would it do? It might save your life! He hit me! He was wrong, believe me, he knows.
You don't think i know people are laughing behind my back? I'll talk to tony, i'm sure he'll make it right.
At this point, how? I don't know.
Would you take capo of your crew? No, no, i wouldn't , no fuckin' way.
Ralph cifaretto came by.
What'd he want, a fully- fueled jet and a safe trip to the pope? He's running scared si nce you cancelled that dinner.
If your opponent is of choleric temper, irritate him.
Yeah, well, he wants to apologize.
Oh, really? Would that p ut this to rest? If it's sincere.
It might relieve me of a very unpleasant decision.
You know, they're about to break ground on the esplanade.
We're talking about millions of dollars here, tony.
It wouldn't hurt either of to have a point man in there feels appreciated.
I'm just saying.
It wouldn't hurt to throw him a bone.
Like what? Capo? No fuckin' way.
Never.
You heard what he did.
That poor girl just had her 20th birthday.
Capo's what he mentioned.
I threw cold water on it right away.
But she was a whore, tony.
I don't want to talk about that situation ever again, with anybody.
You understand me? It was just a suggestion, keep a happy shop.
Correct me if i'm wrong, didn't you say you weren't gonna stick your beak in? Can't two friends talk? I talked to him, he's delighted you wanna see him.
Great, he said that? That's great.
That's fuckin' great news.
What'd i tell you? Listen, the other thing, what's he gonna do to make that right? Just talk to him.
He indicated he's very open to working something out.
Thank you, thank you.
Anything! Thank you, thank you.
Oh, fabian! The fuck you doing up before noon? I'm moving out, over to dov's.
Beanie boy? Yeah, his reserve unit in israel got called up.
God bless america, huh? Listen, you find yourself short on x, i know a guy.
X? What? I'm trying to do you a favor.
And just so you know, that bullshit your future father- in- law pulled over thanksgiving, he knew i had no intention of going over there.
He's trying to save face.
So he stoops so low, he had his wife lie to your mother.
Whatever you need, give me a call.
Be good.
The woman is Sometimes i just want to scream in her face, "quit whining, no wonder he left you!" Her supervisor looks at her cross- eyed and i get a call at She wants to talk about how her father laughed at her when she fell off her bicycle when she was seven.
Does she call yo ur emergency number? No, that's not the point, elliot! Oh, these fuckin' interruptions! I was raped.
You have feelings of y our own and who is listening? That's right, damnit.
I have to sit there and take care of these people hour after hour with all their problems and some of them are very real and very serious, and i'm sorry, i care, i really do but it's hard sometimes.
I just want to say,"i hurt!" Good, sure.
That's why you're here.
I'm sorry, elliot.
No need to be sorry.
You've been through such trauma.
It takes tremendous strength of will and inner resource to soldier on as you do at your work.
Thank you, elliot.
I try, i really do.
It's just hard sometimes.
And patient soprano? How's all that? He offered to escort me to my car.
I almost fell in his arms crying.
Oh, jesus christ.
Chris.
Paulie.
Ralphie.
You wanted to see me? Yeah, tony.
About what? About what? You know to apologize.
Oh.
Sit down? I was doing a lot of coke.
I said some things and i did some things that i'm sorry for.
It's not gonna happen again.
What'd you do? I was rude when you offered me the drink.
And i disrespected "the bing".
And the girl that shouldn't have happened.
Like i said, i was doing a lot of coke.
But i gave that up, and end of story, and i'm sorry, tony, okay? Anything else? Hey.
What's up, gi? Hey, gi.
My wife made some turkey sandwiches if anybody wants one.
I'm still a little bloated from thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving, Fucking turkey, it's like spackle in my bowels.
Nothing moves.
Want me to run to rite aids and get you some metamucil? Nah, i hat e that shit.
Maybe i'll try one with lettuce and cranberry.
Ralph around? Not yet.
Want me to give him a call? Please, let's just enjoy the quiet, huh? After decades of planning, ground was broken today on the city of newark, new jersey's museum of science and trucking, and riverfront esplanade.
Oh, hi, ralphie.
C'mon in, he's watching tv.
the project was held up several times by political infighting-- nothing, he gave me nothing.
Two seconds, look, the fuckin g esplanade, finally.
We're gonna need our own bulldozers to take the money away.
Not a thing, john.
Not a thank you, not an apology, nothing! Calm down, take it easy.
He let me stand there like a servant scraping, bowing! Cocksucker didn't even invite me to sit down.
It's posturing, it's part of the game.
Fuck the game, he's going down.
Are you fucking stupid coming in here talking to me like that? I don't give a fuck anymore! I've given my life to this thing and this is the thanks i get? It's silvio dante on the phone.
You wanna talk to him? Tell him i 'll call him back.
They're my children.
You seriously cannot be-- i'm so sorry! You shut the door? Jesus christ, you're worse than bobby.
Anybody see you come in? Yeah.
Fuck'em.
I don't give a shit anymore.
Brought you some leftover turkey and stuffing, manigott'.
Keep it.
Everything goes through me.
And these drafts, i should be down in boca.
Drafts? It's like the fucking amazon jungle in here.
What's the thermostat say? Don't touch it! Alright.
Jesus.
You're scaring t he hell outta me here.
The though t of losing you.
Grandpa, did he ever work for somebody named trillo? He owned a lumberyard? My father was a master stonemason, he never cut fucking wood.
A contractor then? Built garden apartments? There was somebody named trillo, he had seven daughters.
I can't remember.
I thought you were gonna ask my advice about ralph cifaretto.
Got any thoughts? What else do i have left? A real contremps you have on your hands here.
A good kid, but you never should've put gigi in there.
He's strong, a good earner, well respected.
Not by that crew.
To them he's a ghibelline coming over to butt in.
They don't trust him, they undermine him.
On top of that, you got ralph now pissing in their ears.
Any day you'll have a mutiny on your hands.
So, i take gigi out, what kind of message does that send? That you're indecisive and unsure of yourself.
Exactly.
Who the fuck would i replace him with anyway? All good questions.
Great, what's the fuckin' answer? Who says there is one? That's what being a boss is, you steer the ship the best way you know.
Sometimes it's smooth, sometimes you hit the rocks.
In the meantime, you find your pleasures where you can.
How much longer, skip? I gotta take a leak! Holy jesus.
What the fuck are you lookin' at? Call 911.
I don't feel a pulse.
I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry.
Thank you, tony.
He was a good man.
Never said a bad word about anybody.
Thank you, tony.
I'm so sorry.
It's fuckin' awful.
He's a young man.
Heart disease the silent killer.
Hey, there are worse ways togo.
Even still, on the pisciadood? Pretty fuckin' humiliating.
It's how elvis died.
That guy in hollywood too.
Don something.
Producer o f "the simpsons".
So, there' s a vacancy.
There's a lot of business to do.
You thought about who it's gonna be? Terrible, it's a terrible thing.
Guy was in here twice a week.
Brought the kids in and everything on sundays.
Artie, hey, ton'.
I gotta go rotate my pork shoulder.
You wanted to see me? Sit down.
I'm making you captain.
You are? That's great.
Oh, that's fuckin' great.
Anthony, you're no t gonna be sorry.
Thank you.
What? I need to hear it was merit, and not just'cause somebody was constipated and blew a gasket.
You're gonna be making a lot more money, ralphie, so, don't question.
You wanted captain? You're captain.
Thank you, tony, you're right.
I've wanted this so fuckin' long.
Well you know what they say.
Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
So, um we gonna have a drink together or what? What's this shit i hear about tony having a fight with ralph cifaretto? Something about thanksgiving? I was there.
What, at tony's? Wow, on thanksgiving? After dinner, to take meadow out.
Did you fuck her yet? Her body is mad ripe.
Yeah, but did you fuck her yet? She's creamin' for me, man.
You didn't fuck her yet.
I don't know if it's even a smart thing.
She's tony soprano's daughter.
