Another week has passed and we've lost another important figure. I don't want to turn this blog into obituary of the week but I was a huge admirer of The Sopranos and still think it holds up as one of the best TV series ever made. It still hasn't been topped even though the series ended in 2009. Gandolfini never matched his work on the series and he managed to create a sympathetic character despite the fact that Tony Soprano was a murderous, psychotic gangster. As a tribute to the man, who will be greatly missed, here's a few of Tony Soprano's sayings, with thanks to EW

On moms: “This is gonna sound stupid, but I saw at one point that our mothers are … bus drivers. No, they are the bus. See, they’re the vehicle that gets us here. They drop us off and go on their way. They continue on their journey. And the problem is that we keep tryin’ to get back on the bus, instead of just lettin’ it go.”

On sympathy: “Oh, poor baby. What do you want, a Whitman’s Sampler?”

On romance: “When you’re married, you’ll understand the importance of fresh produce.”

On being the boss: “All due respect, you got no f—in’ idea what it’s like to be Number One. Every decision you make affects every facet of every other f—in’ thing. It’s too much to deal with almost. And in the end you’re completely alone with it all.”
