Tony is thrown for a loop when the crooked cop on his payroll, Vin Makazian, tells him that Big Pussy has made a deal with the Feds and is wearing a wire. Pussy, Jimmy Altieri and others were recently arrested and Tony knows how much Pussy worries about money and the cost of his son's college education. Tony confides in Paulie but tells him to do nothing until they have absolute proof. A good thing since someone else is the rat. Livia meanwhile continues to moan about Tony's treatment of her and manipulates Junior into thinking Tony is conspiring against him. He tells her he has no choice but to eliminate him and Livia tells him she has no objections. Written by

When Tony tells Dr. Melfi he feels as though a safe might fall on his head, she replies, "a feeling of pending doom." A woman of her intellect and education should know the proper word is "impending".
"Pending" means something awaiting a conclusion. "Impending" means about to occur. See more
Why the fuck would Pussy run? I mean, the guy's outta breath liftin' his dick up to take a leak.
