Storyline

With Carmela home sick with the flu, Tony and Meadow head off to Maine visiting different colleges. They're having a good time and Tony is honest with her about what he does for a living. He's shocked however to see a one-time gangster, Fabian Petrulio, who some 12 years before testified against some fellow mobsters and is now living under the witness protection program. Tony decides he has to do something about it. Carmela gets a visit from Father Phil who ends up spending the night. She also gets a call from Dr. Melfi and learns for the first that Tony's doctor is a woman. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This is the only episode of the first ten in Season #1 in which a Jewish character, subplot or significant reference to Jews is not included. Although one mob-affiliated Jewish character--shylock Hesh (Jerry Adler)--appears in over 28 episodes, major mention, or even asides, about Judaism in later episodes of "The Sopranos" are much more restrained than in this first season.

Goofs

When Tony carries Meadow to her room, the number on the door is 22. But the next morning when they leave, it's marked room 20. Earlier, Fred Peters had read on the cleaning lady's list that Meadow was staying in room 20 and Tony in room 21. See more »

Tony Soprano: Oh, I bet he gave you communion.
Carmela Soprano: Excuse me?
Tony Soprano: Well, Carmela, the guy spends the night here with you and all he does is slip you a wafer?

While Tony is driving Meadow to college interviews, he spots an old snitch who has been in hiding under a new name. Meadow is waking up to what her father does for a living, and Tony has to work around her suspicions as he hunts down the rat, with a little help from Christopher. Back on the home front, Carmela sort of seduces her priest, who ends up spending the night at her house. She also takes a call from Dr. Melfi. Dr. Jennifer Melfi. As in, a woman shrink. Something Tony has carefully avoided telling Carm. The final scene between Tony and Carmela is priceless. A brilliant episode. We go from Tony-as-doting-father waiting patiently while Meadow is being interviewed to Tony-the-murderous maniac choking the life out of an adversary.
