    The most exciting part of this episode is watching Tony beat Boon from Animal House with a belt. Boon from Animal House, is Peter Riegert, who expertly plays Assemblyman Ron Zellman, who periodically works “illegally” with Tony. In this episode they both work together on a H.U.D. scam. The reason Tony beats him with a belt, is because Zellman is seeing Tony’s ex – Irina. But that really isn’t the main importance of this episode (although it will precede on to the rest of the episodes this season). The real importance of this episode, is Paulie getting out of prison (where he was since before season four started.) He continues airing family business to Johnny Sack, behind Tony’s back. However, the episode gets a little sappy towards the end when Tony is driving home in his car and crying in the car because of a song on the radio. The reason this episode gets such a high rating is because it is such a step up from last week’s piece of sh*t. Overall Grade: A-

    Ranking in season: # 7 / 13
