New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie speaks during a ceremonial signing event of the 'Dream Act' legislation at Colin Powell Elementary School in Union City, N.J., on Jan. 7. / Justin Lane, epa

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie "woke up this mornin" to a sea of newspaper front pages questioning his involvement in a scandal over closed lanes on the George Washington Bridge.

E-mails and texts have surfaced, showing Christie aides may have plotted to cause traffic jams because a local mayor did not support the governor.

One character from the Garden State (may he rest in peace) knows all about how to handle allegations of corruption.

Here are 10 life lessons from Mob boss Tony Soprano of HBO's The Sopranos for Chris Christie to remember.

1. "If you can quote the rules, then you can obey them."

2. "A wrong decision is better than indecision."

3. "Those who want respect, give respect."

4. "This isn't painful. Getting shot is painful. Getting stabbed in the ribs is painful."

5. "You know, let sleeping dogs lie."

6. "All due respect, you got no [...] idea what it's like to be Number One. Every decision you make affects every facet of every other [...] thing. It's too much to deal with almost. And in the end you're completely alone with it all."

7. "Even a broken clock is right twice a day."

8. "It's good to be in something from the ground floor."

9. "How come I'm not making freakin' pots in Peru? You're born to this [...] You are what you are."

10. "You chose this life. You don't want to work in the rain, try for the [...] Yankees."
