I'll give a hint: the brand name came up when Coma Carm was talking to Tony on the phone while he was in the lobby of the convention and first discovered the briefcase anomaly. She mentions the brand and that she gave it to him for Christmas.

IIRC, it came up when Coma Carm asked, "Is it [the switched, i.e., Finnerty's, briefcase] a ____________________ [brand] too?" So I'm thinking that's how you would know the brand of the original briefcase.

I had totally forgotten about this thread.

DH, you're a lot stricter on "cheating" than I am.:icon_razz: I think casual, coincidental rewatches are fine. If they refresh the memory on trivia, that's an incidental benefit, no?:icon_biggrin:

Well done. Bally is the answer. You're up next, DH.

Sorry to jump in but I just thought of a good one, actually a 2 part answer:

When Bobby got the call that Carmine Sr. had passed away, he got off the phone and made a comment that he recalled that Carmine had invented point shaving. Uncle Jun replied with a specific game reference, and what he bought with his winnings..........


CCNY vs. Kentucky, 1951...he bought a Black Fleetwood. :icon_wink:

I remembered the game but admit I had to search for what June bought with his winnings.

Now for my question - to the best of my knowledge there are 12 different actors that were in more than one episode of The Sopranos AND had a role in Goodfellas. Each of these actors had a prime speaking role on the television show though they may have had only a bit part in the movie. Who are they?

For extra credit, there are at least two others who had roles in the movie and starred in only one episode of the television series, and these would be a major speaking role on that one episode. Who are they?

(Note - my count may be wrong, so if you think there are more, feel free to correct me. :icon_biggrin:)
