Tony, his spirits crushed after b-lining to the fridge first thing in the morning: "Who ate the last piece of cake?"

People say things like " that Ritchie, he's a creep" or " Phil Leotardo, jesus what a hard case", things like that. But guess what, who personally has killed more people than anyone else on the show? Anyone? Well, it's Tony. By a long chalk. Something like seven murders at least that I can think of off-hand. But of course he likes ducks, horses and small dogs so that's ok. And he takes care of his children! Jeez, what a guy! Welcome to the site.

"The man's a criminal Jennifer, and after a while finally ,you're going to get beyond
psychotherapy with it's cheesy moral relativism, finally you're going to get to good and evil ,and he's evil"
To me one of the sanest things I have heard on the Sopranos ever

dsweeney wrote:Fly, I am simply pointing out that a lot of viewers seem to gloss over the fact that Tony is a career criminal, a multiple murderer and a sociopath. A cheating husband, a racist and somewhat homophobe. Oh and in case I forget, a fat greedy bastard.
Maybe this is the point though , that the viewer, like Melfi to at least SOME degree, is somehow charmed by him. Taken in by him. If this was Chase's intent then he succeeded in spades. But I find it strange for instance that not many people like Christopher but find things in Tony they can like. What did Ritchie do, apart from make Beansie a cripple ? Did he murder anybody ? No. As a person is Phil any worse than Tony ? No, he isn't.
Because Tony is broken up about Pie people feel he is at some level a good person. Because he is so upset over Tracee people think he's a good guy really. They forget though how he had Adriana killed like an animal in the woods. Melfi finally realises this is all part of his profile as a sociopath. "The crocodile tears" etc. I ,for one, am not taken in by Tony Soprano's charms. That's all I was saying.
