Chris and Little Carmine head out to Hollywood to pursue Chris' dream of making a movie about his life. They manage to get an interview with Ben Kingsley, but the star isn't impressed with their idea. While in town, Chris falls off the wagon and starts drinking and doing drugs again, and also mugs Lauren Bacall before returning to New Jersey. Back home, the families are celebrating as the books open again to induct two new members, Gerry Torciano and Burt Gervasi. Amidst the festivities, however, Artie gets into a confrontation with Benny, one of Chris' crew-members, first over his affections for Artie's new waitress Martina, then later when Artie discovers that Martina and Benny have been stealing credit card numbers from the restaurant's customers. When things turn violent between the two, Tony must step in and mediate, saving particular criticism for Chris for going to Hollywood rather than keeping his men under control.
