AJ gets into trouble at school yet again, this time for stealing an exam. The result is expulsion and Tony decides he has to go to military school. The three of them soon troop off to the Hudson Military Institute for interviews but Carmela is against the idea. AJ's reaction gives Tony pause for thought. Jackie Jr. is hiding out and Ralphie comes under pressure to do something about him. Everyone will soon have a funeral to attend. Paulie's mother has a tour of the retirement residence but he is upset that Ralphie hasn't paid him $50,000 that he's owed. It takes a formal sit down to solve the problem but Paulie's not pleased with the outcome. The FBI is again looking at prosecuting Uncle Junior and hopefully Tony as well. They decide to send in someone undercover to cosy up with Ariana.

When Tony, Carmela, and AJ visit the military academy, Major Zwingli makes 3 references to sayings often overheard at Alcoholics Anonymous:
1.) He says to AJ: "That's what we call..'stinking thinking' 2.) Also to AJ: "We have an expression around here; "Keep it simple". 3.) The last thing he says to Tony and Carmela "One day at a time". See more
Major Zwingli is wearing two ribbons in the wrong order of precedence. The Army Overseas Service Ribbon (bottom row, middle) should be in the place of the Army Service Ribbon (bottom row, left) and vice versa. See more
[Meadow reproves her cousin for making careless accusatory comments about how Jackie Jr. died
Our dads are in the garbage business, and it's always good for a laugh. And, yeah, they brush up against organised crime. But, do you think they control every slime ball and illegal gun in like a hundred communities? The fact that you would even say this in front of an outsider is amazing to me! Jesus Christ, some loyalty?
