Carmela and Hugh reconciled enough for him to attend Christmas celebrations at the Soprano home later that year - after Carmela's spec house started to go ahead again. Mary has been married to her husband Hugh De Angelis for over 40 years.
Mary and Hugh have a long marriage, but she does nag her husband quite a bit and tends to treat Hugh as a subordinate rather than a husband, a theme that reappears in Hugh's relationship with both his wife and his daughter Carmela.
To bring peace with Johnny Sack (and to avoid Tony B.'s being tortured to death by Phil Leotardo), Tony S. Quintina, or "Aunt Quin" as people call her, is first seen when she and Livia are planning to board a plane for Arizona.
However, because the tickets are stolen, the FBI questions her and Livia.
That year, Janice took Domenica to Satriale's Pork Store to demand that Tony make Bobby a capo.
Their feud leaves Mary meeting with Tony and Carmela alone while Hugh stays home.
Almost everyone in the Soprano family consider Hugh a classy, old-school gentleman for whom tradition and respect are very important values.
He has an affable and kindly manner, but does not hesitate to speak his mind on points of disagreement with family, particularly his wife.
Hugh became involved in a real estate investment with Carmela involving a spec house.
However, construction of the spec house was halted after a building inspector found that low-quality wood had been used.
