Also the only episode in which longtime series writer/producer Mitchell Burgess appears in an acting role. Following in the footsteps of several other behind-the-scenes, production staffers he took his fun turn in front of the camera, in this show as 'Iowa Burgess.' In real life, Burgess was a student at the University of Iowa, where he met his wife Robin Green--who is also a veteran writer/producer of The Sopranos (1999). See more »


When Tony B. is breaking down the wall with a sledgehammer, he hits it once, then twice and the hole is much bigger, then when the camera goes to the kids then back to the wall, it is the first hole, the smaller one. See more »


Sungyon Kim: So, Blondino. Why you fuck me like this?
Tony Blundetto: Fuck you talking about? I got a whole leg coated with neosporin, I just spent an hour with the cops, explaining how it went down.
Sungyon Kim: I don't forget you professional criminal.
Tony Blundetto: Lemme ask you something. If I really wanted to rob you, you think I'd have to put up with *this* bullshit?
Sungyon Kim: Well just so you know.

Passions run wild

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.
