Storyline

Now Back from Italy, Tony decides it's time to re-organize. Silvio is named consigliere and Paulie is promoted to Capo, with Pussy and new arrival Furio reporting to him. Pussy's not too happy with the arrangement and complains to his FBI contact about how he's being treated. Tony and Carmella throw a party to introduce Furio but she refuses to let Uncle Junior in the house when he shows up unexpectedly. Tony is none too pleased when he finds that Richie Aprile and his sister Janice are sleeping together at his mother's vacant house. Adriana pays for Christopher to attend an acting for writers class in the hope that it helps him with his screenplay. His emotions get the better of him. Meanwhile, Dr. Melfi recounts her dreams about Tony's to her psychiatrist and still feeling guilty, decides to take Tony back as a patient. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The first of two episodes whose titles are tributes to songs by The Four Seasons. In both cases, the group's music is also part of the show's soundtrack, as it is in this show in the opening scene. Even more, both the sound and aura of New Jersey is especially evident in the later casting of the Four Seasons' iconic front man Frankie Valli as a Mafia capo. Valli also knew Joe Pesci from their early days around the Newark, NJ music scene, and references to both men's careers are sprinkled throughout the "Sopranos", including mention of the Four Seasons biographical Broadway mega-hit 'Jersey Boys', which features the character of young Joe Pesci, who also was one of the musical's producers See more »

Goofs

When Tony and Hesh are talking in Hesh's backyard, a crew member in a light-blue shirt is visible over Tony's right shoulder. See more »

Quotes

Writing coach: Welcome. Why don't you tell the group something about yourself?
Christopher Moltisanti: My name is Chris Maceviti. I work on Wall Street. Not on Wall Street, but you know, stocks.
Writing coach: You write?
Christopher Moltisanti: Yeah... I want to write for the movies. "Goodfellas", shit like that.
Writing coach: Any special reason you chose this class?
Christopher Moltisanti: I didn't. It's a birthday present from my girlfriend. I had some problems with my screenplay so, I bought that book, "how to write a movie in 21 days". That was like a year ago.

Furio comes to visit
4 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Furio arrives in the U.S. and joins Tony's crew. Pussy gets bumped aside as Tony promotes Paulie and Sil. Chris goes to an acting class for writers, a gift from Adriana, but gets a little too emotionally immersed doing a scene from REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. Furio is where the fun is in this episode. He appears to be the sweetest guy on earth, with his big smile, boyish face and ponytail. That is, until Tony sets him loose on a deadbeat. Within the space of about 30 seconds, he has the deadbeat paying up and begging for mercy, something Chris seemed unable to do earlier ih the episode. While all this is going on, Richie begins to play house with old flame Janice, who is looking to take a loan out against Livia's house. The last time we saw Janice, she was opening an $8,000 disability check from the state of California. Tony turns to Hesh for support, only to find out some interesting facts about Tony's father.
