    • TRIVIA (1)

      • During the Season 1 episode, "Do You See What I See", Tony tells Carmela a story about how he was too short for the academy and so his father and brothers would pull on his arms and legs every night to "stretch" him.  In this episode, flashbacks show that Lou was also part of this process.

      • Ecclesiastes 3:1-8


        The title of this episode refers to the first lines of Ecclesiastes, one of the books of the Old Testament.  The lines were also made famous in 1965 by the band, The Byrds, who used them as part of their song, "Turn! Turn! Turn!".

      • Tony: You ever seen Vertigo?


        Vertigo is a 1958 Alfred Hitchcock film starring James Stewart in which he plays a detective who suffers from the condition vertigo and a fear of heights.

      • Tony Scali: To us kids, oh, he was Eliot Ness, Pope John, and Mickey Mantle, all rolled up.

        Eliot Ness was the Prohibition agent whose team, nicknamed "The Untouchables," brought down Al Capone in 1931. Actor Robert Stack played Eliot Ness in the television series The Untouchables, which ran from 1959 to 1963 on ABC. Pope John XXIII was the leader of the Catholic church during that time (1958 to 1963); while Mickey Mantle played for the New York Yankees from 1951 to 1968.
