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

Simply one of the finest episodes that ever graced not just modern-day television but TV full stop! Buscemi did a sublime job in adding sympathetic moments to comedic ones. Tony & Gloria's match-ups are fantastic but Paulie & Chrissy show every actor how it's done. Who knows what eventually happens to the Interior Decorator, just absorb the beauty that is Pine Barrens. The music is spot on and the hilarity of the lines make this one to savour. "Put remote back on docking station" and revel in the performances of some truly great actors. A true masterpiece in the annuls of TV. Do not mix relishes either, it just don't taste good!! R.I.P Big Jim.
