Line(s) of the Day #TheSopranos

Gandolfini as Tony Soprano with Lorraine Bracco as his psychiatrist in 1999

Excuse me, let me tell you something… When America opened up the floodgates and let all us Italians in, what do you think they were doing it for? ‘Cause they were trying to save us from poverty? No, they did it because they needed us. They needed us to build their cities and dig their subways, and to make them richer. The Carnegies and The Rockerfellers: they needed worker bees and there we were. But some of us didn’t want to swarm around their hive and lose who we were. We wanted to stay Italian and preserve the things that meant something to us: honor and family and loyalty… and some of us wanted a piece of the action. Now we weren’t educated like the Americans, but we had the BALLS to take what we wanted!

      • I have never seen a second of it. But I’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t like it.

        I’ll presumably give it a try at some point. 😉

      • I’d put The Wire above it, but it’s an iconic show and one i will write a review of at some point. I’m not sure a drama has had a better set of actors.

      • I don’t watch enough TV to really have a list. (My free time goes to books and movies.)

        But my top 2 are:

        1. Breaking Bad
        2. The Wire

        Wasn’t a huge fan of the first’s finale, but I wasn’t a huge of the second’s entire final season. So I’d put Breaking Bad first.

      • A lot of people say that. I haven’t seen the show, so can’t judge.

        The Breaking Bad finale is sheer brilliance (like the rest of the show) for much of it’s time. And it’s never bad, like many think The Sopranos finale. I just don’t think it finishes as great as the show would make viewers expect.

        Hence, why I say I’m not a huge fan instead of saying I don’t like it. There is nothing about the finale that should dissuade you from finishing the show.
