The best Sopranos moments (in gifs)

We love The Sopranos. You do as well. We figured you wouldn't be here otherwise.

As such, you'll likely share in our joy at the news that every season of the mob series is now on Sky Box Sets. 

Sure, you've got the physical DVD set sitting on the shelf in your living room - but this way, you get to skip the faff of changing discs every few hours, right?

To celebrate the return of Tony et al, here are 10 of our favourite moments from the show in all their gif glory. 

Paulie and Christopher get lost in the woods 

(Season 3 Episode 11)

One of the most memorable episodes and definitely the funniest. After killing (or so they think…) a member of the Russian mob, Paulie and Christopher take the body to the New Jersey woods in order to dispose of it. However, the mob member is still alive and outsmarts the both of them and makes his getaway. This leads to Paulie and Christopher wondering the woods hungry, cold and most importantly, incredibly lost. 

Tony and Carmela’s big fight 

 (Season 4 Episode 13)

All of Tony’s extramarital relations come to boiling point. After Carmela receives a call from one of Tony’s old girlfriends accusing him of sleeping with his mother’s one legged nurse, years of neglect on Tony’s behalf surfaces in this monumental argument.

Dream sequence with Pussy as a fish

(Season 2 Episode 13)

In one of Tony’s darkest and deepest dreams, his former associate and best friends, Pussy, appears to him as a fish in the market. This is just after Tony had shot and killed Pussy for being a ‘rat’ and dumped his corpse into the sea. 

Christopher’s Intervention

(Season 4 Episode 10)

Christopher’s heroin addiction has left him increasingly unstable, so in an effort to save him from himself, the family organise an intervention. However, due to the meeting turning more volatile as it goes on, Christopher ends up being taken to hospital after disrespecting Tony and his own mother. 

Ducks in the pool

(Season 1 Episode 1)

This shows both the sensitive and vulnerable side to Tony, when he sees beauty in nature and the ducks, whilst his regard for humanity leaves much to be desired. 

Janice whacks Richie

(Season 2 Episode 12)

Whilst arguing with her future mob husband, Janice gets punched in the mouth. After he mocks her further, Janice shoots him in the chest over dinner. This shows that the Sopranos are a family that do not like to be pushed around. 

 

‘We’re with the Vipers’

(Season 6 Episode 9)

A strong bonding moment between Tony and his nephew (though not by blood) where they hold a comical, impromptu heist on a biker gang called ‘The Vipers'. This shows Tony’s quick thinking abilities, as well as the child within him.

AJ gets his eyebrows shaved off

(Season 5 Episode 4)

After a wild night in New York, Tony’s son returns a day late with no eyebrows. This shows how Tony’s only son is going through his teenage years, with as much care as the average teenager, and with Carmela and Tony reacting in classic Sopranos style.

Silvio does Al Pacino

(Season 2 Episode 1)

Tony’s right hand man Silvio re-enacts one of the most famous lines from the Godfather films to the delight of the family. This impression then goes on to become one of the most loved phrases from the entire series.
