Quotes

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: That must have been devastating.

Tony Soprano: No, it turned out it was no big deal.

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: To see your father handcuffed, being led away by the police.

Tony Soprano: At the time I thought my head was gonna explode. He looked... helpless. When I got home my mother had a different perspective, which made me feel better.

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: So in her pain she reached out to you.

Tony Soprano: That's one way to put it.

Young Livia Soprano: Your father may not be home for dinner tonight. Go wash up.

Young Tony Soprano: I know.

Young Livia Soprano: What do you know?

Young Tony Soprano: I saw him getting arrested. What did he do?

Young Livia Soprano: He didn't do anything. They just pick on the Italians.

Tony Soprano: Maybe this was his chance to get out. I know Dad was no choir boy, but maybe with a little bit of support...

Livia Soprano: Oh, Mr. Sensitive now. Well, if it bothers you, maybe you better talk to a psychiatrist.

[walks away]

Tony Soprano: Whoa, what are you talkin' about, a psychiatrist?

Livia Soprano: Well, that's what people do when they're lookin' for somebody to blame for their life, isn't it?

Tony Soprano: You're a real stone player, aren't you, Ma? You threatened to smother his children.

Livia Soprano: What does that mean?

Tony Soprano: You know, everyone thought Dad was the ruthless one. But I gotta hand it to you. If you'd been born after those feminists, you woulda been the real gangster.

Livia Soprano: I don't know what you're talking about!

[walks away]

Tony Soprano: But I'll tell ya somethin', I was proud to be Johnny Soprano's kid. When he beat the shit outta that guy, I went to the class, I told them how tough my father was.

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: Do you think that's how your son feels about you?

Tony Soprano: Yeah, probably. And I'm glad. I'm glad if he's proud of me. But that's the bind I'm in 'cause I don't want him to *be* like me.

Johnny Boy Soprano: After Rocco gets the book up, he's gonna open a new supper club. He wants me to run it.

Young Livia Soprano: A supper club? Are you drunk?

Johnny Boy Soprano: Oh, bella Madonna, Jesus Christ Almighty!

[hits the wall]

Johnny Boy Soprano: Fucking albacore around my neck! Every time I try to do somethin'! Me and the kids will go without ya!

Young Livia Soprano: They are not going anywhere! I'd rather smother them with a pillow than take them to Nevada!

Johnny Boy Soprano: Always with the drama!

Peter Galani: He often has difficulty waiting his turn, is often quote unquote, "on the go" or acts if driven by a motor. Often interrupts or intrudes on others. And often fidgets with hands or feet.

Tony Soprano: He fidgets with hands or feet?

Peter Galani: That's right.

Tony Soprano: You mean, like, he fidgets?

Peter Galani: Uh-huh.

Tony Soprano: And that's a sickness, to fidget?

Peter Galani: Mr. Soprano, it's one of nine possible symptoms.

Tony Soprano: What constitutes a fidget?

Carmela Soprano: Tony...

Tony Soprano: No, no, what constitutes a fidget? I mean, so what if he fidgets? He's in school. Who doesn't fidget in school? And he doesn't wait his turn? The kid's in puberty, he gets a hard-on every ten minutes, for chrissake.

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: She was very high strung, my mother. Very dramatic. Every night to her was a night at the opera.

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: Genetic predispositions are only that: predispositions. It's not a destiny written in stone. People have choices.

Tony Soprano: She finally offers an opinion!

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: You think that everything that happens is preordained? You don't think that human beings possess free will?

Tony Soprano: How come I'm not making freakin' pots in Peru? You're born to this shit. You are what you are.

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: Within that, there is a range of choices. This is America!

Tony Soprano: Right... America.
