Storyline

Tony is approached by an attractive real estate agent with an offer to buy a building he owns in the old neighborhood. The building is leased to an old established business and Tony hesitates to sell them out. Both Tony and Carmela are frustrated with AJ who has dropped out of college and is working a few hours a day at Blockbuster. Unknown to his parents he's also out clubbing and spending money he doesn't really have. He visits his Uncle Junior - but the call is anything but social. Phil Leotardo is inquiring about Vito's whereabouts. Tony tells him to mind his own business but Vito's wife is Phil's cousin and he has no intention of dropping it. Vito is still in hiding and afraid to return knowing what wiseguys think of gays. He's interested in a short order cook from a nearby diner but has a bit of trouble dealing with it all.

Goofs

The receipt for the club didn't show that they charged an entrance fee for AJ and his friends because all high class clubs in New York City charge the entrance fee separately. The entrance fee is charged immediately when the patrons first enter the club. See more »

The wrath of AJ
10 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

AJ has revenge in mind, and drops in on Junior. Unfortunately, nothing goes as planned. A commercial real estate agent makes Tony an offer he might not be able to refuse. Vito finds a potential new boyfriend in New Hampshire. And Phil is hot to trot with Vito, if he can find him. Julianna Margolies is the real estate agent looking to buy an old building Tony owns, and she has the makings of another Gloria Trillo to further mess up Tony's life. Robert Iler gets to strut his stuff a little as the man-child son of Tony. Joe Gannascolli, not the world's best actor, nevertheless gets to show off the sweeter side of Vito as he becomes infatuated with a mustachioed volunteer firefighter who looks like a reject from The Village People. I'm not sure what David Chase thought he was accomplishing, playing out in fairly graphic detail a gay "love" affair over the next few episodes. It's almost as painful as watching Christopher take the needle.
