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

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

Welcome. Why don't you tell the group something about yourself?
My name is Chris Maceviti. I work on Wall Street. Not on Wall Street, but you know, stocks.
Yeah... I want to write for the movies. "Goodfellas", shit like that.
Any special reason you chose this class?
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.
