Silvio Dante: [referring to Ralph's snubbing of Tony] "Another time, Anthony"?
Tony Soprano: Cocksucker turns his back on the boss?
Silvio Dante: That, I couldn't believe.
Tony Soprano: Lucky I didn't put one in his fuckin' head.
Silvio Dante: On that front, don't be surprised if Paulie pops the question. Raphie's star is rising. All those unions. Paulie can't come near that kind of cash for us.

Tony and Ralphie are at odds since Ralpie killed the stripper and Tony beat him in retaliation. Fearing a potential NYC/NJ gang skirmish, Johnny Sack convinces the crazier-than-ever Ralphie to apologize to Tony. In the middle of all this, a captain kicks the bucket Elvis-style and Tony ends up very reluctantly making Ralphie a captain. Ralphie meanwhile still talks about whacking Tony. Meadows gets it on with Jackie Jr, but manages to land herself in a world of hurt when she steals Jackie's car in a fit of pique. The tense interplay between Gandolfini and Joey P. is what makes the episode sing. Anything else in the episode is strictly filler.
