And yes, she's sexy enough even with the one pin gone, but that's not it. I could converse with her 'cause she had something to say.
Carmela Soprano: I AM HERE! I have things to say!
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Besides bringing the fucking chairs down and sign the fucking trust! She was a grown woman who was kicked around. And she's been on her own and she had to fight and struggle!

Carmela Soprano: What about her cousin?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: [realizing he's been caught] What? No.
Carmela Soprano: The nurse who took care of your mother, who I liked? Who I spoke to on the phone about your mother's alopecia and her bowel movements? Who I shared vodka with the night your mother died? You've been FUCKING her?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: There is not a shred of truth in that.
Carmela Soprano: Why would the cousin make it up, huh? Because she's jealous?
[she lunges at him and he grabs her and pins her to the wall]
Carmela Soprano: LET GO OF ME!

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Carmela, who the fuck did you think I was when you married me, huh? You knew my father, you grew up around Dicky Moltisanti and your uncle Eddie. Where do you get off acting so surprised and miffed when there are women on the side? You knew the deal.
Carmela Soprano: Deal?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: And your mother can talk about what she wants about whats his name and his chain of drug stores. You and I both know that the other boyfriend you were debating marrying was Gerry Tuffie and his father's snow plow buisness. And we now know that that wouldn't of suited you at all.
Carmela Soprano: You really don't hear me, do you? You think for me it's all about things.

"The Sopranos: Second Opinion (#3.7)" (2001)
Carmela Soprano: He's a good man. He's a good father.
Dr. Krakower: You tell me he's a depressed criminal, prone to anger, serially unfaithful. Is that your definition of a good man?... You must trust your initial impulse and consider leaving him. You'll never be able to feel good about yourself. You'll never be able to quell the feelings of guilt and shame that you talked about, so long as you're his accomplice.
Carmela Soprano: You're wrong about the accomplice part, though.
Dr. Krakower: You sure?
Carmela Soprano: All I did was make sure he's got clean clothes in his closet and dinner on his table.
Dr. Krakower: So "enable" would be a more accurate job description for what you do than "accomplice". My apologies... Take only the children - what's left of them - and go.
Carmela Soprano: My priest said I should work with him, help him to become a better man.
Dr. Krakower: How's that going?

Carmela Soprano: I thought psychiatrists weren't supposed to be judgmental.
Dr. Krakower: Many patients want to be excused for their current predicament because of events that occured in their childhood. That's what psychiatry has become in America. Visit any shopping mall or ethnic pride parade, and witness the results.

Carmela Soprano: What we say in here, stays in here, right?
Dr. Krakower: By ethical code, and by law.
Carmela Soprano: His crimes... they are, organized crime.
Dr. Krakower: The Mafia!
Carmela Soprano: Oh Jesus.
[wipes tears from her eyes]
Carmela Soprano: So what? So what? He betrays me every week with these whores!
Dr. Krakower: Probably the least of his misdeeds.
[Carmela gets up to leave]
Dr. Krakower: You can leave now, or you can stay and hear what I have to say.
Carmela Soprano: You're gonna charge me all the same.
Dr. Krakower: I won't take your money.
Carmela Soprano: That's a new one.

Dr. Krakower: Have you ever read Crime and Punishment? Dostoyevksy?
[Carmela shakes her head 'no']
Dr. Krakower: It's not an easy read. It's about guilt and redemption. I think your husband ought to turn himself and read this book in his jail cell and meditate on his crimes every day for seven years, so that he might be redeemed.
Carmela Soprano: I would have to get a lawyer, find an apartment, arrange for child support...
Dr. Krakower: You, you're not listening. I'm not charging you because I won't take blood money, and you can't, either. One thing you can never say is that you haven't been told.
Carmela Soprano: I see.

"The Sopranos: Toodle-Fucking-Oo (#2.3)" (2000)
Carmela Soprano: Fine, I'm not gonna argue with you Tony. If you want her to leave then you're gonna have to tell her cause I'm not. It's not Christian.

Carmela Soprano: So, what did she have to say for herself?
Tony Soprano: The usual shit, "wasn't my fault."
Carmela Soprano: There was designer drugs there, tony. So, what did you say?
Tony Soprano: I don't know, i yelled. What the fuck else am i gonna do?

Carmela Soprano: There has to be consequences. What kind of parents would we be if we let her get away with this?
Tony Soprano: Typical?

Tony Soprano: You would think I was Hannibal Lecter before or something.

Tony Soprano: Had some good times. Had some good years?
Carmela Soprano: Here he goes now with the nostalgia.
Tony Soprano: Hey, all I'm saying is no marriage is perfect.
Carmela Soprano: Well, having that comare on the side helps.
Tony Soprano: I told you I'm not seeing her anymore. How do you think I feel, having that priest around all the time?
Carmela Soprano: Don't even go there, alright? Father is a spiritual mentor. He's helping me to be a better Catholic.

Tony Soprano: [regarding Father Phil] What you guys do for twelve hours? Play, uh, "Name That Pope"?
Carmela Soprano: He gave me communion.
Tony Soprano: Oh, I bet he gave you communion.
Carmela Soprano: Excuse me?
Tony Soprano: Well, Carmela, the guy spends the night here with you and all he does is slip you a wafer?
Carmela Soprano: That's verging on sacrilege.
Tony Soprano: Oh, I didn't mean to verge.

"The Sopranos: Commendatori (#2.4)" (2000)
Carmela Soprano: You know what the church says about divorce...
Angie Bompensiero: Oh, *please*! Let the Pope live with him.

Carmela Soprano: [Angie wants to divorce Pussy] So, what did the lawyer say?
Angie Bompensiero: He said I have a good case. We'll file on Tuesday.

Angie Bompensiero: Monday's a Jewish holiday.

Livia Soprano: What are you talking about?
Carmela Soprano: I'm talking about this. This "poor mother, nobody loves me" victim crap. It is textbook manipulation. And I hate seeing Tony so upset over it.
Livia Soprano: I know how to talk to people.

Carmela Soprano: [in prayer for Christopher's life] Gentle and merciful Lord Jesus, I want to speak to you now with an open heart, with an honest heart. Tonight I ask you to take my sins and the sins of my family into your merciful heart. We have chosen this life in full awareness of the consequences of our sins. I know that Christopher's life is in your hands... and his fate is your will. I ask you humbly to spare him. And if it is your will to spare him, I ask that you deliver him from blindness and grant him vision. And through this vision may he see your love... and gain the strength to carry on in service to your mercy. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
