"I got my limits, too..."
Robert Baccilieri, Jr., AKA Bobby Bacala, is a stalwart soldier in the Soprano organization. "Bacala" is salted cod, and at first glance, Bobby can appear to be a fish out of water. He's quiet and sweet tempered, and even among a bunch of guys sporting pasta bellies, his stands out. Bobby's obesity often brings him scorn from the other wise guys; Tony himself has warned Bobby "get off my car before you flip it over," and that he should "seriously consider salads." But Bobby is loyal to his deeply buried core, and doesn't shirk the physical requirements of his job. When Tony needed muscle to crack down on a demonstration at a construction site, Bobby was in the thick of the fray, wielding a crowbar with the best of 'em. When Tony needed someone to help him find Christopher and Paulie, who were lost in the pine barrens, Bobby's experience as a deer hunter was just what he needed.
Family is very important to Bobby. He's married, with kids, and was very close to his father, famed DiMeo button man Robert Baccalieri, Senior. When his father died in a car crash after doing a hit for Gigi Cestone, Bobby was inconsolable. His current assignment is as a replacement for the late Mikey Palmice. His duties mostly entail driving Junior to doctor's appointments, fixing him lunch and providing an audience for his diatribes. But despite Junior's cantankerousness, Bobby has grown to love and respect him - what more could an old capo ask for?
