adj. May involve a disappointing sibling, a one-way rowboat ride, or...uh, what else did Fredo do?

Real citation: "A shadow hung over the show from the opening scene, in which menacing knocking drives Tony and Carmela from bed, and Carm expresses her first half-conscious thought: "Is this it?" I'm sorry to say that it is. And knowing that this is it, it was hard not to read the tea leaves: Tony's Fredo-rific rowboat talks with Bobby, that creepy story about a kid drowning in a swimming pool, so like the swimming pool from which the Soprano family saga first took flight."

Made-up citation: "I'm an only child, and I avoid the sea, so I can never be Fredo-riffic. Never!"
