He Is Risen - S3-E8

He Is Risen - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Ralph and Jackie are in Rose's kitchen talking. After Jackie pours a box of Trix cereal, he sets it down with the front of the box (Trix is showing) facing the camera which is set awkwardly on the counter - it is not set down flat on the counter. For the remaining shots of the scene showing Jackie, the cereal box is now flat on the counter with the back of the box facing the camera. (00:31:55)


He Is Risen - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Tony and Gigi are sitting at the poker table at The Bing where there is a stack of money left from the other's card game. At the end of their conversation, the stack of money is gone. Neither Tony nor Gigi grabbed it. (00:28:00 - 00:28:35)

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: You know where I was yesterday when you called?.. I was outside a whorehouse, while a guy that works for me was inside beating the shit out of a guy that owes me money. Broke his arm. Put a bullet in his kneecap.
Dr Jennifer Melfi: How'd that make you feel?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Wished it was me in there.
Dr Jennifer Melfi: Giving the beating or taking it?

Trivia: Whenever the mobsters in the Sopranos pay they almost always take a wad of cash out of their pocket and pull off the top 3-4 bills and hand it over. If Tony is paying for a pizza he pulls off 3-4 bills. If he's bribing someone he pulls off 3-4 bills. No matter what the amount is for that particular situation, it's always covered with the top 3-4 bills of the cash wad.
