Christopher Moltisanti Sticks Up a Bakery

Christopher, played by Michael Imperioli, certainly had a number of ridiculous scenes — from the time he waxed poetically about the smell of Blockbuster Video to the time he helped Janeane Garofalo and Jon Favreau film a shootout. But there's something about the pettiness in the episode where he’s ignored at the bakery and ends up robbing the clerk for a couple of cannolis, then shooting him in the foot out of spite.

Silvio Dante’s Rant About ‘Anti-Italian Discrimination’

Silvio (Steven Van Zandt) complains that the cancellation of Columbus Day is an example of “anti-Italian discrimination,” in a moment that has subsequently been immortalized as a meme, best employed in the service of complaining about Chris Pratt’s casting as Mario.

Ralph Cifaretto Becomes A Jerky Boy

Ralph suspects Paulie of squealing about him telling fat jokes about Ginny Sack. As payback, he prank calls Paulie’s mother under the guise of “Detective Mike Hunt, Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania Police Department,” in the middle of the night to inform her that her son has been arrested for lewd acts with a Boy Scout and a small rodent.

When Tony learns that his uncle is surprisingly skilled at oral sex (which Junior views as a “sign of weakness”), he relentlessly taunts him on the golf course and eventually bursts into a rendition of “South of the Border (Down Mexico Way).”
