305: “Another Toothpick” with Jay Gordon



Matt and Vince are joined by Sopranos twitter luminary and fsckd podcast host Jay Gordon (@jaydestro) to talk about one of his favorite episodes of the Sopranos, season 3 episode 5, Another Toothpick. Not only did Jay watch the episode in preparation for the show, he took notes and he’s not afraid to refer to them. Jay understands rule #1 of Pod Yourself a Gun: when you want respect from the pod, you give respect to the pod.

Like an Am/Pm on the Jersey turnpike, this episode has too much good stuff and a bunch of guidos. Carmela and Dr. Melfi finally meet face-to-face during a couples counseling session, Tony is bad in a familiar way (racism), good in an unexpected way (gives a dying man a sense of purpose), and Bobby Bacala Sr. takes Mustang Sally for one last ride with a Marb Red. On top of all that, we get Artie Buco’s disastrous friendzone-cementing dinner with Adriana. The scene is discussed at length in 2020 without a single utterance of the word simp, and someone deserves a Whitman’s Sampler for that restraint.

The star of the episode is a toss-up between Burt Young as Bobby Bacala Sr. and Artie Buco’s divorced-guy earring (he’s had it for years – he just doesn’t wear it a lot). Tell us your choice in a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts.
