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

The snow in the woods was not written in the script. It was originally planned that Christopher and Paulie were suffering through the cold temperature. A blizzard occurred right before filming. The light snowfall when they first enter the woods was the last of the blizzard. See more »

Goofs

When Chris and Paulie open the trunk with the Russian inside, Chris mentions that he chewed through the tape. Why would they put tape on his mouth if they thought they had killed him. When they are walking through the woods with the Russian at gun point you can see that the Russian is wearing snow boots. Why would he be sitting in his own home in pajamas with boots on. Obviously the actor put the boots on so he could comfortably walk through the snow. See more »

Tony Soprano: Yeah. Nice, huh? He was with the Interior Ministry. Guy's like a Russian green beret. He can not come back and tell this story. You understand?
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: I hear you.
[hangs up]

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.
