What’s the best ‘Sopranos’ one-liner?
Another day passes during our Sopranos love-fest, as the show gets ready to kick off its final nine episodes next Sunday.
Since 1999, the HBO series has given us a whole lot of drama: The whacked characters alone could fill an entire cemetery.
But Ã¢â‚¬Å“The SopranosÃ¢â‚¬? has given us a lot of laughs, too. Rarely does an episode go by without making me crack up at least once.

Conversations like this one are pretty commonplace:
Acting New York mob boss Phil: As coincidence would have it, [Fat Dom] was last seen in New Jersey.
Tony: So was the Hindenberg. Maybe you want to look into that too.
But my all-time favorite comes from the fabulous Carmela in Season 2, when she shows that sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not above flinging around her husbandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reputation to get what she wants.
In Ã¢â‚¬Å“Full Leather Jacket,Ã¢â‚¬? Carmela asks Joan OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Connell, the twin sister of her neighbor, Jean Cusamano, and a Georgetown Law graduate, to write a letter of recommendation for college-bound Meadow.
Joan tells Carmela no, because she doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know Meadow at all. Not one to take no for an answer when it comes to her kids, Carmela shows up unannounced at JoanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s office with a ricotta pie Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with pineapple.
Tell me if this exchange doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make you chuckle:
Carmela: I don’t think you understand. I want you to write that letter.
Joan: Excuse me?
Carmela: I said I want you to write the letter.
Joan: Are you threatening me?
Carmela: Threat, what threatening? I brought you a ricotta pie and high school transcripts so you could write a letter of recommendation for my little daughter to Georgetown.
So after six seasons, what line from “The Sopranos” made you laugh out loud?
