He asks her if shes going to say that he (Johnny) asked for it. She assesses that yes. Its about 50/50. But, she admits, since most people thought Sonny had no business airing Johnnys dirty laundry, Sonny embarrassed himself more than Johnny did. She also reminds Johnny that one more advantage he has for which he can be grateful is that nobody can blackmail him anymore. Nobody can hold the truth about Claudia over his head. Its very liberating, she tells him, when everybody knows the worst.
