    Talking about companies, what's the deal with the Lincoln/Beaver commercial? Why did they show AJ watching it? If it were product placement, you'd think that they'd mention the name of the product...and if it wasn't product placement, then what was the point?

    Besides, there are enough guns around that if AJ wanted to, he could have put a bullet in his brain.

    "No offense," but I thought the American History X flashback scene was waaaaaay disturbing. :eek:

    Tony needs to go to the old country and get a few Furios for the coming war.

    I am a desensitized 20something so it doesnÂ’t really bother me. In one of the games I play (Gears of War) curb stomping is a common method of finishing off an opponent.

    I was wondering about that... aside from the apparent subconscious desire to fail/be rescued, why would someone use both the bag and the water?

    The real Bada Bing (aka Satin Dolls) is actually like three or four stores down from Baja Fresh on Route 17 in Lodi! God I loved Paulie saying that line!

    Also, Little Carmine Lupretazzi has to be the most entertaining character on this show! Hearing him try to use, and ultimately butcher, "big" words is hysterical!!!

    He didn't want any potential rescuers to give mouth to mouth? :eek:

    I also liked the great-grandfather who drove the donkey cart off the road in Abileno!

    I'm kind of disappointed the peyote "I get it" experience didn't seem to go anywhere. Our mothers are buses and we keep trying to get back on?

    I noticed how he pronounced Baja, but somehow I missed the sandwich part.

    Yeah what was the saying that Carmine botched? I remember laughing about it, but just can't recall what it was now.

    Or the FedEx box. Which is EXCEEDLINGLY amusing as FedEx won't insure luxury watches. A dealer will only ship via UPS because UPS will insure luxury watches.

    My Prediction_____Meadow is killed while driving Tony's car. A.J kills Phil while Phil is at a gas station. He does it with a pipe. Both Sil and Paulie get whacked as well as a bunch of Phil's soldiers. The information tony gives the Feds help stop a terrorist attack. Tony and Carm end up on their couch with bags packed ready for witness relocation.

    He said something about Tony's "alteration" at the restaurant.

    I'm getting a vibe that they may actually be leading up to a Tony Soprano suicide as the grand finale of this show.

    This whole season has been about Tony's world slowly crumbling down around him. On the family front, he's fighting with Carm again, his son is a depressed good-for-nothing loafer, his daughter is dating someone he doesn't like. On the "family" front, his relationship with the New York mob is going sour and he is realizing more and more what a bunch of misfits his crew is - Paulie is a bigmouth lout, Bobby Bacala sucker-punched him and is dimwitted and lazy, and his best earner Vito was gay and is dead. Not to mention Christuhphuh, who was a drug-addled loser and who Tony thought betrayed him with Cleaver, and who's now dead by Tony's hands, for which Tony is having feelings of guilt (and there's now a picture of Chris hanging up where he hangs out with they guys to remind him at all times).

    It just seems like everything they've been funneling towards this season is not a turf war with New York and not a sudden entry into a witness protection program, but a deep depression from which at some point Tony will see no escape.

    I'm not even sure Tony's a real sociopath, at least not in the mold of or to the extent of the two killers in In Cold Blood. He forms long-term relationships, feels emotion, plans ahead, is not chronically impulsive. He has anger issues, is depressed, and was brought up in a violent way of life, but I don't know that he's a sociopath in the clinical sense. Of course, IANAP.

    I really liked the scene between him and Melfi where we compared mothers to buses. She seemed genuinely touched and proud that he had had some kind of breakthrough in understanding, and was really taken aback and hurt when he brushed it off as if she were mocking him. Well acted.

    probably smeeking, but from the final scene w/ Tony and AJ in the psych ward, it seemed to be just like one of the final Godfather scenes.
