He may have been impatient and ill-tempered, but no one can say that Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli) didn’t have some serious ambition. Starting off as little more than a glorified errand boy, over the course of The Sopranos’ six seasons (available to stream anytime on HBO Now), he slowly moved his way through the north Jersey mafia under the guidance of his uncle, Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini). While it’s true that Tony always had a soft spot for his nephew (at least until near the end of the show’s run) it was Christopher’s sheer desire to better himself that drove his aspirations. So, the next time you need to prove yourself, let these snippets of his wisdom serve as your guide.
“Louis Brazi sleeps with the fishes.”
Going all the way back to the pilot episode, Christopher tries to show some real initiative by killing a rival associate. While his intent was admirable, before you take a page from his book here, try to be less murder-y about it. Also, don’t go around misquoting The Godfather. It’s embarrassing, and an almost greater offense.
