||Tony Soprano tries to be a good family man on two fronts ? to his wife, kids and widowed mother ? and as a capo in the New Jersey mob. The pressures of work and family life give him anxiety attacks, so Tony starts seeing a psychiatrist ? which is not the kind of thing a guy advertises in the circles Tony moves in: it could get him killed.
||Hot-headed Chris, and his even hotter-headed friend, Brendan Filone, wanted to make some extra cash, so they started highjacking trucks. Ordinarily they`d be applauded for showing this kind of initiative, but the trucks belonged to a guy who paid protection to Uncle Junior. Naturally Junior demanded the stolen goods be returned and thattribute be paid to him as well.
||Denial, Anger, Acceptance
||Although Christopher and Brendan returned the stolen goods to Comley Trucking like he demanded, Comley thanked Tony for it, not Junior. Now Mikey Palmice is telling him that if Tony won`t do something about those two guys, somebody else should ? and Junior`s starting to agree with him.
||Tony is still having dreams, but these aren`t about the ducks. He`s now dreaming about Dr. Melfi. And what did this self-respecting capo do when he finds himself having racy dreams about his therapist? He has her followed, of course.
||Tony escorts Meadow on a series of visits to colleges in Maine, and the trip goes pretty well. Tony and Meadow even discuss Tony`s "business". But then Tony spots an old "friend" at a gas station, and everything changes. The "friend" is Fabian "Febby" Petrulio, made man turned rat, who entered and then dropped out of the Witness Protection Program. Febby`s now known as Fred Peters, travel agent.
||After years of playing second fiddle, Junior Soprano finally became the new Boss of New Jersey and proceed to drive everybody crazy. Not only did he refuse to honor any deals made during Jackie Aprile`s reign, he also didn`t let any of his newfound wealth to trickle down to the guys below.
||Anthony Jr. is proving to be a regular chip off the old block, and Tony`s not sure he likes it. He especially doesn`t like that he and Carmela are called to the Verbum Dei principal`s office because A.J. and his posse stole some sacramental wine and showed up drunk for gym class.
||The Legend Of Tennessee Moltisanti
||At the wedding of Larry Boy Barese`s daughter, all the wise guys talked about was the indictments coming down and how half of New York has already left for Fort Lauderdale. So the question was, what are Tony and his associates going to do, lam it or stay? The decision was for everyone to stay--but do a little "housecleaning" in case anyone shows up on the doorstep in an "FBI" jacket.
||The grand jury hasn`t indicted anybody yet, but the tension in Essex County got thicker than homemade marinara. Junior decided to get away from it all for awhile and headed to Boca Raton with his ladylove, Roberta. Junior and Roberta have been together for sixteen years and she`s the one person to whom he can show his tender and to put it delicately ? "giving" side.
||A Hit Is A Hit
||Both Carmela and Dr. Melfi thought it would be a good idea for Tony to meet new people. So against his better judgment, Tony and Carmela started socializing with the neighbors. They went to backyard barbecues and Tony was invited to play golf with "the guys" at Dr. Cusamano`s country club. Sounds nice, eh? The problem was, every time he was around these "mayonnaises" all they wanted from Tony was stories about the mob.
||Nobody Knows Anything
||Somebody`s wearing a wire.
||Since Pussy disappeared, Tony`s had a string of them. Madonn`, this is the most depressed he`s ever been. He avoided Carmela and the kids, neglected the business ? and as for personal hygiene? Fuhgeddaboutit. Dr. Melfi tried to jump start his system by having him take so much Prozac and Lithium it`s practically its own food group; but it still looked like nothing would ever get him up and on his feet again.
||I Dream Of Jeannie Cusamano
||The cat`s out of the bag, and the rat`s in it ? a body bag, that is.
