* NoLongerWithUs: Tony's father-in-law tells Tony that he (the father-in-law) is going to prison. But he can't bring himself to say the word "prison" and leaves off with, "I'm going to..." So Tony assumes that [[NeverSayDie "die" was the unspeakable word]] that he was having trouble with. HilarityEnsues as the father-in-law spends the whole episode enjoying the sympathy that is accorded to a terminally ill person.
