Just watched this again. One of my favorite scenes of all time. Everything is perfect: the writing; the directing; the acting; the use of music; the editing. Christopher really was one of the great, truly tragic characters. I almost cried at the end when he's embracing the dog and it made me wonder if the dog was a surrogate for the father he lost when he was a child.

The writing of the show was so good that I became invested in the character of Christopher, and to watch his descent is absorbing and meaningful.

I feel like I'm on my period.

Phil Leotardo: I'm sitting there listening to WFAN and I go, isn't it that the kid who used to drive for Tony?
Benny Fazio: I'm on my way to the hospital.
Phil Leotardo: Well that's up to you.

Great scene. Very realistic portrayal of drug addiction. From what ive heard u never truly lose the need for drugs. Especially when addicted to heroin.

Yeah, Great scene. He never stood a chance in life..

Good Topic. Obviously Chris wasnt a good guy but its clear he really stood no chance. Even though he treated Adriana horribly that choice he made kind of sealed his fate. Even getting married,becoming a capo didnt change the fact that he relationship with Tony was over because of what happened

I always thought it was kind of sloppy writing for Chris to go to the Feast in that state and not get spotted by someone.

Good point. That did kind of cross my mind.

Great scene, just drives me a little nutty when shows/movies don’t ever take the time to get drug scenes totally accurate. This was a smaller mistake but I watched it so I’m gonna point it out.

The syringe was enormous, they were using a muscle syringe, you would never attempt to use one of those on a vein to shoot up drugs. One would use a normal size syringe-identical to what diabetics use. Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine in cinema.

I wonder if they do that just so it's easier to see what's going on. Lotta dumb people watch TV and they need things spelled out for them. (though if you think about it, you could mime shooting up with a stick and most people would get what you're trying to convey)

Worse was before they went to Livia's wake, Furio, Chris and Ade are snorting blow and hitting a bong.....clearly no one in that room had used a bong before. Ha.

With the exception of Junior, and probably Christopher, I would have to agree. Vito was a ferocious earner in construction,and Ralph and Furio were tough soldiers who would be an asset to any Family. If Chris could have stayed clean,he might have been a decent mobster,but I think his personality and lack of intelligence would have limited his rise in the Family,despite his connection to Tony. Sil was a rock solid guy, and Paulie - "Forget about it", he's the guy you want on the team.

I agree with you, Goldy. I thought the same thing.

This. The syringe was HUGE. I figured they didn't want to make it look TOO real and to sway would-be users away because of the size of the syringe. Just my two cents.
