    In the best episode of the season so far, Junior surprisingly takes the spotlight. The episode primarily focuses on him having a fight with Tony, and then wandering the streets alone, lost, looking for Tony’s father who has been for twenty-something years. Obviously, it becomes clear Junior is becoming senile in his old age. The friction between Tony and Junior is very exciting, but at the end of the episode where Junior sheds tears when Tony tells him he loves him, kind of seemed a little on the sappy side. Another exciting event, is the mock on female Capo Lorraine Calluzo pulled off by Johnny Sack’s right hand man Phil Leotardo. Phil ties her up, duct tapes her mouth, puts a phonebook up to her chest, and shoots through the phone book with a revolver. Just when you think she is , and hear the gunshot, Phil acknowledges the bullet only made it to the ‘R’s’ and next time, “There would be no next time.”, unless Lorraine kicks up her points to Johnny Sack instead of Little Carmine. In the shocker of the episode, Lorraine Calluzo begs for her life, by pleading with her attempted hitman by saying, “I’ll suck your s, please don’t kill me!” In the end, it’s an excellent episode, that could’ve been better if it had a different ending.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • While wondering around his old neighborhood, Junior sits on a bench and looks up at a water tower in the shape of a bottle at a nearby building. The building Junior is staring at is a Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer brewery which closed in 1985. When the brewery was in operation, the tower had a Pabst label affixed to it. The brewery was demolished approximately two years after the episode aired, but efforts were made to preserve the beer bottle/water tower.

    • The television show that Uncle Junior confused for showing him and Bobby Bacala was HBO's own Curb Your Enthusiasm, specifically the season 2 episode, "The Doll".
