Storyline

Tony is in a coma in hospital after being shot by Uncle Junior who, with his deteriorating dementia, thought he was an intruder. Doctors are pessimistic and have told Carmela to prepare for the worse. Syl takes temporary charge of the family and with Tony's poor prognosis, sees himself as his natural heir. Carmela, Meadow, a somewhat reluctant AJ and several captains maintain a 24 hour vigil. As for Tony, he dreams he is a businessman on a trip to California. Unfortunately, he seems to have taken someones briefcase and wallet by mistake. He has no identification and only a small amount of cash on him. As a result of the mix-up everyone thinks he someone by the name of Finnerty, including two Tibetan monks who are dissatisfied with the heating and cooling system he sold them. Written by garykmcd

"Urban Critic" has no idea what he's talking about
20 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The poster "Urban Critic"'s review of this episode was ridiculous. While the episode wasn't a classic, I found it enjoyable because it showed Tony dreaming about life out of the mob. The dream sequences were also full of metaphors, very allegorical. A bit too much sap with the hospital scenes, but the few "family" dealings scenes were good. The seeds are being sown for some turmoil within the family. "Urban Critics" thought that The poster "Urban Critic"'s review of this episode was ridiculous.

"Urban Critics" thought that "Perhaps, another suicide would have made a substantial positive difference in this episode?" was the sickest thing I've ever read on IMDb.com. Get help, Critic. If suicide scenes are what you want from your T.V. shows I feel sorry for you. I've had someone close commit suicide and it's not something to take lightly.
