Paulie's out of jail and his friend's throw him a party at the Bada Bing. He's still not very happy about he's been treated both before and after he went to jail and the fact that Tony did little while he was there. He turns to Johnny Sack who lends a sympathetic ear. Adriana, still under pressure from the FBI to provide more information, learns from a TV show that a wife can't be forced to testify against her husband. Christopher's not having anything to do with it, especially after she tells him she may not be able to have kids. He relents but not before Adriana learns that she could be called to testify after all. Carmela's cousin, financial analyst Brian, tells Tony of a way to scam the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Carmela's feelings for Furio may be mutual but he starts to avoid her. Assemblyman Zellman tells Tony he's seeing his old girlfriend Irina. Tony seems to take it okay but he's obviously irritated. It's all too much for him in the end. Written by

Adriana is advised during a legal consultation that, in order to claim "marital privilege," the communication must have been made during the course of the marriage (communications before the marriage don't count,) must involve only the spouses, and must not be made in furtherance of a crime. Though this is true of the "spousal privilege" exception to the Federal Rules of Evidence (which would allow either Adriana or Christopher to both refuse to repeat communications made to each other during marriage and prevent the other from doing so in either a criminal or civil case,) it is not true of the "spousal immunity" exception, which would indeed have allowed Adriana to refuse to testify in a criminal proceeding against Christopher, even to communications made before the marriage, so long as the two were married at the time the state attempted to compel Adriana to the stand.
