It seems as though we have (purposely) come into the middle of his conversation with agent Harris; We weren't shown what prompted this trite observation by Goddard. I have been having a little tickle in the back of my brain that thinks maybe the rest of this season will come full circle to this very point in time and that finally we will be allowed to know the "lead-up" to this statement.
This little tickle in my brain is fed by another line in episode 1. When agents Harris and Goddard arrive at Satriales, Tony greets them by saying.."Oh Agent Harris, where have you been? I've had some other federale in my rear view for the past 6 months."
It could be just a throw-away line without significance. But it also could signify that the "lead-up" to Goddard's opening line will be the 6 month period preceding it. And, somwhere along the way, we would see Tony going outside in robe and slippers to pick-up the Star-Ledger off the driveway.
I think I am punchy!!!!
