"All due respect, you got no fucking idea what it's like to be number one. Every decision you make affects ever facet of every other fucking thing. It's too much to deal with almost. And in the end you're completely alone with it." That one famous quote by Tony as he lectured the family about the tough decisions and how to is to be the captain of the ship. Sometimes, you will end up making tough decisions, to assure that the ship stays afloat.
With all the volgarity language in the show , The Sopranos, and all the hard core violence, the show just grabs always to watch it and watch all the reruns of it. There is so much in that show for a Bo3Bo3 to simply not pay attention to. I mean it's like the perfect show. You have the family, leadership, violence, survival, story, and much much more great lessons of life. Ok, I know that violence is no the kind of thing you want to learn, but this violence is from our world that we live in and we simply can not deny it's existence.
My favorite seen is in episode 65 where Tony stands in front of the family and explain to them how leadership goes. He just has to make the tough decision and execute his cousin "Tony B". he is under pressure to give his cousin up to Phil Leotardo. Phil intends to torture Tony B before killing him since Tony B was responsible for murdering one of Phil's guys. What to do now? He is the captain and he knows that Tony B must die to prevent an all out war between the two families.
Tony made his decision clear, he will not give up his cousin to be tortured. So he lays out the decision. Silvio (The concigiliore) , however, doesn't agree. When he and Tony are alone, he tells him "It's about you don't want to eat shit from Johnny" , "There's seven deadly sins and yours is pride." Tony disagrees and executes his son before Phil gets to him.
