Tone! The Rollatini! Act 3...

I had to watch the Soprano's twice this week because the first time I saw it I was just merely a spectator, the second time I watched it I was able to really participate as a fully conscious viewer.

Once again Michael Imperoli has the best line of the episode. The scene picks up speed when Carmella shouts for Tony from the across the room at the wedding.

Carmella: Tone! The Rollatini!

Chris: We are gonna do it, we should do it ourselves, maintain control. Better yet, tell NY to handle it already

Tony: John just asked me specifically

Chris: So its like the movie then

Tony: What Movie?

Chris: One. You cant refuse a man's request on his daughter's wedding day

Tony: No, its the other way around, I should be asking him for something he cant refuse.

Chris: So did you?

Tony: No.

Firstly it took me a few seconds for "One" to register. But when I realized that "One" referred to Godfather One, well, a little bit of pee came out. I mean truly. Maybe I am the only person who thinks this, but to me Soprano's is sometimes more like a comedy then a drama. I mean that in a good way of course. And lately the Christopher character is just so damn funny.

And yes...for those who did the double take, the wedding did take place at Leonard's of Great Neck. Oy.

Wow, I didn't even realize they were in Great Neck!

Chris is killing me this season. I loved the "one" shorthand, but the funniest bit for me was when they were discussing the bride's name.

"What the **** kind of name is Allegra? Isn't that a cold medicine?"

Paulie: "It's Italian for 'beautiful'."

::Thoughtful Christopher pause::

"What the f***'s that got to do with cold medicine?"

I actually felt pretty bad for Johnny Sack's treatment by the feds. You see the human side of these people, the show makes you forget that they're all murderers and theives.
