Storyline

Christopher and Brendan return the truckload of stolen suits but Uncle Junior wants to send a clear message. Jackie Aprile is continuing with his chemotherapy and Tony has a special present for him. Meadow has been working hard at school and tries to get Christopher to supply her with crystal meth to keep her going while she studies for the SATs. A local hotel owner seeks out Tony's help in dealing with his son-in-law who is refusing to give the man's daughter a divorce unless he gets half of the family business. Silvio and Paulie pay him a visit but he's proving to be just a little hard to convince. Carmela hosts a fund-raiser catered by their friends Artie and Charmaine Bucco, who still haven't been able to collect on the insurance from the restaurant fire. Charmaine has something interesting to tell her. Written by garykmcd

Ned Eisenberg IS listed in credits
15 April 2008 | by tobers19See all my reviews

Just as a follow-up to the poster who stated Ned Eisenberg isn't anywhere to be found in the credits of the episode, "Denial Anger Acceptance"...he's actually listed in the opening credits. The Sopranos creators never list an actor in the end credits if he/she is listed up front. For someone who had a relatively minor role in the episode, it truly is an honor for Ned to be listed up front with the primary cast members. Anyways, the Sopranos creators are quite a meticulous bunch, so it would be quite a surprise if they neglected to include an actor with a speaking part in the credit sequence. Hope that clears things up.
