The Sopranos

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.

In Camelot - S5-E7

Trivia: About halfway through the show there is a poker game. There is a shot of the dealer dealing out cards, but he's dealing from the bottom of the deck and doing it obviously.

Japan-Games

Trivia: This was Steven Van Zandt's first acting job. He was previously a guitarist with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. Interestingly, in the season 5 episode "Long Term Parking," Chris Moltisanti turns up late to a meeting, and comments ". . . the highway was jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive." This line comes from Springsteen's song "Born to Run."

I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano - S1-E13

Plot hole: In the scene where the FBI plays the tape to Tony and reveals the conspiracy between his mother and Junior, it is stated that the bugs were placed at Green Grove. However, the second conversation played in the sequence actually took place outside a movie theater the episode prior, which would not have been recorded as part of the Green Grove surveillance. The conversation involves Livia telling Junior that Tony reminded her of her cousin Kiki after she had her lobotomy.

Proshai, Livushka - S3-E2

Question: In the credits a character is shown as "2 to 5 / 7 to 9". Who is this character and what is the significance of her name?

Answer: I'm not sure which person you're referring to here specifically, but the meaning is someone who makes a habit of constantly going to funeral calling hours (normally 2pm-5pm and 7pm to 9pm) for morbid entertainment or gossip purposes (elderly ladies, for example).

Ryan Grubb

Answer: In "Proshai, Livushka", she's the person talking to Meadow in the hall, while Tony watches, and says to Meadow, "I'm so sorry about your grandmother." She also appears and is credited in s03e05, "Another Toothpick" and s03e13, "Army of One." In s06e18 "Kennedy and Heidi", one of Tony's men points her out (although refers to her as 3 to 5, 7 to 9) and when someone asks why they call her that, he says "she never misses a wake." Although in this episode, Marie Donato is not credited.
