I thought it was a pretty good episode. I loved how Homer wanted to be called Johnny Undercover or Melvin Mafia. Got a kick out of when he was talking to Fat Tony and said anyone could be a rat, that he barely knows Homer and let him in the organization.

I actually couldn't believe they killed off Fat Tony, but I like how they brought in his cousin and nothing will change. Seemed a little unnecessary, but it was sort of funny.

One of my favourite parts though was at the end when Homer acknowledged that he didn't even have to shoot anyone, so the baby was the only one who had shot a man. Nice throwback reference.

I was really hoping "Fit Tony" would've been the permanent replacement instead of "Fit Fat Tony. Fat Tony for short".

Props for "killing" off a character though. It's been a while.

I liked it, too. The "Fuggetaboutit" callback was great. Nice twist to the ending, and a great Goodfellas parody.

I liked it but I also wish they would have kept him as Fit Tony. Oh well maybe they'll do a call back to it in a future episode like they did with Principal Tamzarian in the episode where Snowball 2 died.

Ugh, I hate how they killed off a character but really didn't. Always feels really cheap...
