AJ takes his mother's car out without permission and sideswipes a truck causing considerable damage to her car. He's in a rebellious mood, pushing all of his parents' buttons, threatening not to go through with his confirmation and saying that God is dead. Pussy is AJ's confirmation sponsor and Tony asks him to have a talk with the boy. Pussy however is forced by the FBI to wear a wire to a party at Tony's house to celebrate AJ's confirmation and he is deeply conflicted by the situation he finds himself in. Christopher meanwhile starts hanging around movie people, including Jon Favreau. He's decided he wants to be a player rather than a writer in the movie business but when Tony hears about what he's been up to, Christopher has a choice to make. Written by
Did You Know?
A future movie project about "made men" like the late mafioso Joey Gallo that Jon Favreau
talks so passionately about in this episode is one he actually brought to some life in his 2001 film Made
(2001). And fittingly, three The Sopranos
(1999) cast members make cameos in that Favreau movie about would-be wiseguys: Vincent Pastore
as Drea de Matteo
as "Hot Girl 2" and Federico Castelluccio
as "The Bouncer". Pastore, along with several others actors who eventually showed up in future "Sopranos" episodes, also appeared in the mob comedy Mickey Blue Eyes
(1999). And in both this "D-Girl" episode and in Favreau's "Made" movie, characters make disparaging comments about "Mickey Blue Eyes". See more

I'm gonna go back in there and be with my guests. Exactly ten minutes, I'm gonna look up, if you're not here i'm gonna assume that you went to look for whatever the fuck it is that's calling you out there. And then I will never see you again. If you are still here, then I'm gonna assume that you have no other desire in the world than to be with me. And your actions will show me that every second of every fucking day. You understand me? Don't answer me. Take the ten minutes, you think about it.
