This is the first of two consecutive shows in which Rick Aiello plays fellow mobster Ray-Ray D'Abaldo. Aiello's brother, the late Danny Aiello III worked as a stuntman in one earlier "Sopranos" episode. Both are the sons of veteran actor Danny Aiello. See more »


Before Agent Harris reveals to Tony about the Phil Leotardo's plan to murder him or those close to him, we can see [his] (Tony's) Escalade in the background.

best episode ever
7 June 2007 | by ivansamprasSee all my reviews

Just one word, perfect. Best episode of The Sopranos. I can't wait for Sunday. It keeps your eyes on the TV screen for every single second. I wont tell what happens, but I want to say that I'm waiting more next episode than next Indiana Jones movie.I'm sorry that here in Italy nobody knows about The Sopranos. Everyone likes O.C. and they watch it like it's the greatest thing on TV. I've just one thing to say to this people, wake up! You're losing the best thing on TV for what? A teenager series where the story is so bad that after one minute of watching it I said "ok, I think it's better if I go to study something". David Chase invented a perfect mix between The Godfather and Goodfellas and he gave us an unforgettable masterpiece. Thank you David. PS sorry for my English, I think my teacher is wright when he says that I'm bad in grammar
