While Silvio and the boys get into a major squabble with some Indians over Christopher Columbus, Janice is being singled out for being married to mob boss Tony during a church-sponsored forum on the image of Italian-Americans. If things aren't bad enough, Furio reminds the boys that northern Italians look down their noses at southern Italians -- and all of the mob boys are descended from southern Italy peasant stock, of course. The episode is pure comedy. The ending, involving a trip to an Indian casino, will have you crying with laughter as Tony -- who has tried to stay out of all this and ends up very angry with Silvio -- somehow gets to play the patsy. It's Indians 1, Italian-American mobsters 0.
