This might be fun. Most would agree that The Sopranos was one of the all-time great TV shows. Please share your favorite scenes, bits of dialog, and quotes.

Here's one that cracks me up every time I think about it.

As a gift, Adrianna sends Christopher to an "acting for writers" class. In one exercise, the members of the class are paired off and must have a conversation using only the letters "A," and "B" as words. I guess the point is that the actors need to be able to convey emotion in its most elemental form, regardless of the words being said.

Well, I guess Chris was having a bad day, because when he pairs off with his partner for the exercise, and the guy gives him a curt "A," Christopher proceeds to beat the sh*t out of him in the middle of class with everybody watching.

Hahahah . . . still cracks me up.

Great, great show. Have all the dvd episodes and am trying to watch them a little at a time.
The episode with Chris and Paulie in the woods in the winter with the both of them sharing frozen ketchup packets for food still makes me laugh.

I also remember a line a line Junior used when asked about the feds: he said they were so far up his as* that he could smell brylcream.

I also cringe when I think of Tony having his way with the one legged russian maid he hired to look after his sick mom. If I remember, Tonys sister took the leg and used it to try to get the maid to give back the records she thought was stolen from her moms house.
I can keep going....

The episode "Pine Barrens" from Season 3.

Just loaded with hilarious dialogue with Paulie and Chris...

quote:
Tony Soprano: [over the phone] It's a bad connection so I'm gonna talk fast! The guy you're looking for is an ex-commando! He killed sixteen Chechen rebels single-handed!
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: Get the f**k outta here.
Tony Soprano: Yeah. Nice, huh? He was with the Interior Ministry. Guy's like a Russian green beret. He can not come back and tell this story. You understand?
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: I hear you.
[hangs up]
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: You're not gonna believe this. He killed sixteen Czechoslovakians. Guy was an interior decorator.
Christopher Moltisanti: His house looked like s**t.


quote:
Christopher Moltisanti: Russians? They're not all bad.
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: How 'bout the Cuban Missile Crisis? C**********s flew four nuclear missiles into Cuba, pointed them right at us.
Christopher Moltisanti: That was real? I saw that movie, I thought it was b******t.



quote:
[Christopher is urinating outside on Paulie's side of the van]
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: Ohhhh! Go do that by your own window! I don't wanna have to smell your piss all night!
Christopher Moltisanti: F**k you, Paulie.
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: What'd you say?
Christopher Moltisanti: You heard me.
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: Don't make me pull rank on you, kid!
Christopher Moltisanti: F**k you, Paulie! Captain or no captain, right now we're just two a$$holes lost in the woods.

Yeah, a classic. Steve Buscemi directed that one, I believe. How about when Bobby shows up at Tony's (to go look for them) wearing his bright orange hunting vest and little hat.

This probably won't be a popular opinion, but I loved the finale. It wasn't the best episode or the best season, but the ending really worked for me, and it was surely a memorable one. Two favorite moments: 1) Phil Leotardo's head bursting like an overripe melon, and 1a) Little Feat's "All That You Dream" playing on the jukebox as the family enjoys their final meal at the ice cream parlor.


I loved the finale. To quote Michael Imperioli, Tony is very dead.

The one-legged gal was kinda hot, though...

Agree, I laughed so hard it hurt. Nothing like a couple of city slickers trying to deal with the outdoors.

I have too may favorites to name , but one is when Tony calls Christopher up and tells him "We exterminatin' . Bring some canoli an' $hi+ for d'guys ." If you've seen the episode , you know about the kid giving Chris a hard time in the bakery . The scene also features Vito before he was a full-time cast member .

Remember when Janice calls Tony for help with Ritchie's body? A few days later Janice asks him about it, and he says something like "we buried him on a nice hillside, overlooking a little brook . . ." Janice gets all misty-eyed and asks "really?"

I forget what Tony said then, but it was pretty funny.

Tony: "Revenge is like cold cuts."
Dr. Melfi, "I think it's, revenge is a dish best served cold."
Tony: "What did I say?"

I actually think one of my favorite scenes is when Phil Leotardo is at the restaurant with his family, and he tells the story of the family name and how it used to be something else but the people at Ellis Island named them after a leotard (this is when you realize he is sick of taking crap from everyone and is going to try to make a power grab, or at least that’s what I got out of the episode). The one little kid asks, “Why did they do that?” and Phil responds with something like, “because their **** ing morons.”

My other favorite is when Phil Leatardo comes out of the closet to kill the outed gay mobster…the guy who played Tuti in Good Fellas, can’t remember his name in the show right now. So good, coming out of the closet to kill the gay guy. For some reason, I love that guy who plays Phil, he was also Billy Batts in Good Fellas. He seems to die very violent deaths in all of these movies…with the exception of Casino where he actually gets to whack Pesci and his brother in the corn field…..alright, I have to stop watching mob shows/movies…..but I can’t.

I thought it was funny in a depraved and disturbing way when Richie would hold a gun to Janis' head while having sex. What a messed up dude he was. it's not really a favorite moment but certainly memorable.

Frank Vincent. Old friend of Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro since the days of Raging Bull, and a Scorsese favorite actor.

He also got kilt in the HBO movie Gotti playing the part of Robert "DiB" DiBernardo.

When she shot him was when the show really cemented itself as one of the best ever. What a shocked feeling watching that episode!

I always think of the meek gardener/grounds keeper who worked on Paulie's mother's street until he almost got muscled out of his territory before Paulie helped him. As a debt of gratitude, he had to do everyone's yards for free, which is worse off than he was before they intervened. While he's doing Johnny Sac's yard he asks Carmela something, broken arm in tow. She admonishes him, shuts the door and sighs, "what a mope!" One of the best illustrations of how the writers subtly illustrated what a despicable character Carmela is, perhaps the most despicable.

The episode where Chris and Little Carmine go to LA to pitch the Clever movie and end up harassing Ben Kingsley and robbing Lauren Bacall's gift basket. When Ben Kingsley asks Chris who he has in mind to write the script he mentions a guy and explains that he wrote several episodes of Law and Order the SUV.

After Phils head splattered the camera goes to the punks hanging out and one sprays vomit all over.
