Tony Blundetto is working hard preparing for his masseur exams. He's also proving to be pretty lucky as well. His current employer, Sungyon Kim, is impressed with his dedication and offers to front the cost of opening a massage parlor with Tony in charge. Then while out for a walk with his wife, he sees a bag thrown from a speeding car in which he finds $12,000. Setting up a business however is proving to be more of a challenge than he expected. He turns to Tony. Carmela's relationship with Wegler has gone to the next step but she is shocked when he breaks it off suddenly accusing her of just using him to get better grades for AJ.

Passions run wild
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tony B. is given a golden opportunity to start his own business, with backing from his current boss. In addition, he comes across a sack containing $12,000 (don't ask). Within a few days, he has gambled away the money and ends up in a physical altercation with his employer. The violence as always is sudden, and in this case, on the slapstick side. Meanwhile, Carmela is grooving with David Straitharn's highly educated Mr. Wegler -- that is, until Wegler expresses serious misgivings about Carmela's motives (as well he should). What an episode. It doesn't get much better, even if Tony is in and out (mostly out) of the picture. A delicious moment: Carmela discovers AJ is copying a book report from an old report that got an A-Plus. Carmela is horrified while Tony smilingly wonders if AJ paid for it.
