Storyline

Christopher and Paulie are out making collections but things get out of hand and they soon have a body to dispose of. They decide to dispose of it in Pine Barrens in South Jersey. They get to the woods only to find that their victim is still alive. He manages to run off on them and in the pursuit, Christopher and Paulie get themselves lost. As darkness falls, the cold takes over, and it's particularly hard on Paulie who has lost one of his shoes. They take refuge in an abandoned truck but have no choice but to call Tony and ask him to rescue them. Tony is still seeing Gloria Trillo, usually at lunch time. He decides to come clean and tell Dr. Melfi that he's seeing another of her patients. Gloria is something of a Jekyll and Hyde however with wide mood swings. Melfi asks Tony if Gloria's behavior reminds him of anyone. When Jackie Jr. fails to call her, Meadow is certain he is cheating on her. She sets out to find out what he's up to. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Writer Terence Winter once had an argument with a girlfriend who threw a steak at his head. Winter used this as the inspiration for the scene where Gloria throws a steak at Tony's head. See more »

Goofs

Paulie is seen pumping his own gas before he and Chris ride down to the Pine Barrens. Self-service at gas stations are illegal in New Jersey.

in the commentary, Steve Buscemi says that they knew that self-pumping gas was not allowed in N.J., but went ahead with self-service anyway 'cause they didn't want to deal with an attendant overhearing their conversation. See more »

wise guys but not so smart in the woods
12 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this episode and laughed like crazy at the usually tough and 'in control' Paulie lose his composure while stuck in the pine barrens of the title. Christopher wasn't too composed either. It's always interesting to take characters out of their comfort zone and place them in a hostile setting to see how they will react. Both Paulie and Chris learned that it doesn't matter how many bullets are in your gun when you are freezing to death.

Tony also ventured out of his 'comfort zone' with a head case like Gloria. Actually he didn't realize that he was revisiting his childhood with yet another unhappy, demanding, and manipulative woman like his own mother.
