Storyline

With Christopher out of town for a few days Adriana and Tony spend some time together at the Crazy Horse. Tony develops feelings for her but he does his best to resist his urges. He feels quite guilty about it all, which sends him back to see Dr. Melfi after a long break. After the club's closing early one morning they set off together to find Adriana's coke dealer but have a car accident when Tony swerves to avoid an animal on the road. They're not seriously injured but it doesn't take long for rumors to surface, all to the effect that they were having sex in his car. When Christopher returns from an out of town business trip and hears what's happened, he goes berserk, forcing Tony to take a drastic and near-fatal step. It's Tony Blundetto who comes up with the evidence needed to convince Christopher that everything is above board. Carmela meanwhile is now sleeping with AJ's school guidance counselor.

Goofs

In the scene where Christopher confronts Tony about the accident, Tony is wearing a tan sportscoat, yellow shirt, dark pants, and brown shoes. At least one full day passes, as evident by the change in Tony's clothes to a short sleeved shirt. Later, when we see Tony in Dr. Melfi's office he's wearing the sportscoat outfit again. See more »

Uh-oh
22 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tony and Ada have a car accident on their way to score some coke, while the unknowing Christopher is driving back from down south a truck full of contraband cigarettes. Tony gets off without a scratch but Ada is pretty banged up. Word gets around she was giving Tony a little gift while they were driving, and Chris goes off the deep end. The absolute highlight of the episode has Tony getting within an inch of his nephew's face, and demanding he say along with Tony that nothing happened. The look in Christopher's eyes, highlighted by a very old-fashioned lighting technique, is frightening to behold. Steve Buscemi gets the best lines as the cool-headed referee between these two hot-headed gangsters. Tony also has some choice dialog with his shrink regarding his motives toward his nephew's gal pal.
