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

HBO execs were initially opposed to Tony Soprano murdering someone because they felt that it would make him an unlikable character. Producer David Chase convinced them that the audience understood that Tony is a mobster with his own sense of ethics. See more »

Goofs

The gun on the car seat next to Fred Peters is a Ruger .22 target model with a tapered barrel. When he raises the gun in his trailer, the barrel has changed to a heavy cylindrical "bull" barrel. When he steps outside the trailer, it has changed back to a tapered barrel. See more »

Quotes

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.
