With Big Pussy Bonpensiero no longer available to wear a wire, the FBI is desperate to get Tony on tape. They decide that bugging his house - specifically the basement where he would sometimes have conversations with Big Pussy. They obtain a warrant that will allow then to break into the house twice: once to determine where in the basement would be the best place to place the bug and then a second time to plant it. The whole exercise turns into a major operation when they assign teams to each of the occupants - Tony, Carmela, Meadow, Anthony Jr. and the cleaning lady Lilliana - to follow then and ensure they don't return unexpectedly. They decide to rebuild an old desk lamp but their first attempt to plant the bug goes wrong when most of the family members return to deal with a crisis. Meanwhile, Tony is hearing rumors about Patsy Parisi who is still grieving for his dead twin and may be out for revenge.
