The Spaghetti dinner scene with that Italian bitch


When Mike was making fun of her at the table with the head movements and puffed cigarette smoke in her direction... so damn funny. He was onto her game from the start. Hated how Miss Italy lured Scott away from his one true love with her damn coyness and then made sure Mike could hear them going at it. What did you guys think of her? I thought she was very calculating!

Wow...you're joking right? No one lured Scotty away, Scotty was a cold calculating son of a bitch who used that Italian girl.

He was going to inherit a fortune and marrying was a way of re establishing himself in his social circle.

If anyone is a "bitch" it's Scotty. I don't believe he loved Mike at all, I think he used him a great deal. He led Mike on.

Scott seemed very much infatuated with Carmella. Like he told Mike: He only has sex with guys for money. And I do believe he was a straight guy slumming it with gay hustlers to yank his father's chain. And I also believe that Scott was not leading Mike on. I believe that their friendship was real. He did look concerned when he saw Mike lying on the pavement at the end of the movie.

I don't think she was terribly "calculating." She and Scott were just attracted to each other, and Mike was resentful.
