After Tony Blundetto's good friend Angelo Garepe is killed by Phil Leotardo in retaliation for the killing of Joe Peeps, Tony B. sets off to get his revenge. He and the older Angelo had become good friends in prison with the older mobster becoming something of a father figure to him. Tony B. kills Phil Leotardo's kid brother Billy and then goes on the run. Tired of it all and realizing that they're on the verge of an all-out war, Tony goes into New York City and books himself into the Plaza. There he has a strange dream, one that includes the living, the dead and even Annette Bening. It all helps him to decide that the time has come to eliminate his favorite cousin. Written by

The quickly shown clip on TV of High Noon
(1952) is at least the fourth reference in the series to the "strong, silent type" of character portrayed in this classic American western by Gary Cooper
. Tony mentions it several times in therapy and conversation, and the phrase even serves as the title of an episode in Season 4. If Tony Soprano can be thought to hold high any hero, it would be Gary Cooper. See more
