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

I liked it for a different reason...
30 April 2008 | by (Staten Island, NY) – See all my reviews

I know all the critics cite this episode as being one of the best of all "The Sopranos" episodes. I guess I'm a contrarian, but the reason why I like this episode is the portrayal of Father Phil. Modern-day Hollywood tends to show people of faith and clergymen as wild-eyed nuts and naturally the leftist, areligious protagonists are the good guys. People may agree with the previous statement but may have been offended by Father Phil's lust for Carmela. In my opinion, I think this is actually a positive portrayal of a modern-day priest in this sexually suggestive society. Father Phil's discipline wins out in the end, but does admit his desires for Carmela. In the hands of a less competent creator who was trying to make a statement against organized religion, Father Phil would have slept with Carmela. Just remember, the bloodiest regimes in history were not religious ones, but rather areligious, Marxist governments which killed hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
