Trivia

In this early trial-and-error period of the series, this is one of the very few, if not the only one, of all 86 The Sopranos (1999) episodes in which both the writer (Mark Saraceni) and the director (Nick Gomez were one-time contributors. That is, neither man worked on the show again, though both went on to write/direct numerous other TV shows in their careers. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Jennifer Melfi: [about Jackie's condition] From what you're telling me it doesn't sound very good.
Tony Soprano: From what I'm telling you? Well, what the fuck do I know? I'm not a doctor.
Dr. Jennifer Melfi: You're angry. Who with?
Tony Soprano: Let me tell you something. This man has had chemo every day for three fuckin' weeks and he still has every last hair on his head.

Ned Eisenberg IS listed in credits
15 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just as a follow-up to the poster who stated Ned Eisenberg isn't anywhere to be found in the credits of the episode, "Denial Anger Acceptance"...he's actually listed in the opening credits. The Sopranos creators never list an actor in the end credits if he/she is listed up front. For someone who had a relatively minor role in the episode, it truly is an honor for Ned to be listed up front with the primary cast members. Anyways, the Sopranos creators are quite a meticulous bunch, so it would be quite a surprise if they neglected to include an actor with a speaking part in the credit sequence. Hope that clears things up.
