Storyline

An old high school friend of Tony's, David Scatino, talks him into letting him play in a high stakes poker game. David's on a streak of bad luck and he's also in debt to Richie Aprile, who has banned him from his games until he catches up a bit. When Richie sees David at Tony's game there's trouble. David's problems grow when he can't pay Tony back and has no way out but to give him his son's four wheel drive as partial payment. It puts Meadow in an awkward situation. Richie continues to be a problem for Tony who sees him, Janice and his mother together at a family funeral. Janice eggs Richie on adding to the tension with her brother. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Continuing the frequent pattern of "Sopranos" cast members having relatives also show up in the series, Tony Sirico (Paulie)'s real-life older brother 'Carmine Sirico' appears as the nameless "Dealer" in this episode's first poker-game scene spouting a few words, all of them off-camera. It stands as the one and only TV or film credit of Carmine's acting career. See more »

The Happy Wanderer (#2.6)
6 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Tony's old high school friend David Scatino wants to participate in a poker game Tony holds. Tony warns him that the game is not for him but he insists. Turns out David wants to be part of it because he already owes money to Richie from a game. This time he has bad luck as well. And Tony doesn't let their friendship stand in the way of getting money back. Which may as well have ruined the friendship of Meadow and David's son.

The episode is especially good for small moments. Such as Silvio's anger over the cleaning of peanut shells, Tony telling Dr. Melfi how he wants to hit her cause he is angry and the first encounters of Tony and his mother (even though nothing has been said yet).

And my favorite when Tony finds out from Junior that he has another uncle who was "slow". His line "My mother always used to yell at my dad about his feeble minded brother, but I thought she meant you" and Junior's reaction were perfection.
