Carmela disregards Rosalie’s advice and goes to Furio’s to offer decorating advice for the apartment he is creating for his mother. They even make a “date” to go to Colortile, and she’s very excited about it.

Because of “the horse and all” Tony decides Carmela needs a break and springs a last minute vacation on Carmela. When she isn’t completely thrilled he angrily tells Furio she can be a moody bitch, but it doesn’t fall on the sympathetic ear he’s hoping for. Furio is exhibiting more and more distain for Tony and his behavior, especially after the drunken carousing at the Indian casino. Brian is puking everywhere when the perfect opportunity to take Tony out arises, everyone would think he just accidently stumbling into the whirling blades of the helicopter propeller. But for some reason, at the last moment, Furio doesn’t push him, he covers it up by pretending he was saving Tony from possible injury. Then he packs up everything he owns and heads back to Naples with hardly a word to anyone. Carmela is devastated by the news and Tony isn’t too happy either. At least it’s something to take his mind off that damn horse.

Florida’s king of mispronunciation, Little Carmine, comes to visit and talk to his stubborn father about the HUD situation. The Soprano family is disparaged and called a glorified crew during their golf game. Negotiations are still going nowhere, and fast, and when Carmine refuses to make any further concessions The Sopranos crew trashes his new restaurant and deface the painting that had hung in the office of former New York Mayor, Fiorello La Guardia. Carmine retaliates by calling the union and shutting down work on The Esplanade project which is going to cost everyone money. Finally Johnny and Tony meet again and surprisingly John hints that if something were to happen to Carmine all the unpleasantness would simply go away. Madonn’!

Paulie complains to Silvio about being out of the loop on recent events, so Sil tries to warn him that “people are wondering were his heart is at” and reminds him that he is only as good as his last envelope. His confidence is shattered when he sees Carmine at a wedding and realizes Johnny Sack was just using him for information and never mentioned him at all. He’s got to figure something out quickly.

When Minn, Cookie and his mom get in a car accident, Paulie drives the old ladies into the city to see “The Producers.” After the ladies cram everything they possible can into their restaurant doggie bags, there is an argument over two dinner rolls. Paulie lets his dislike of Minn show repetedly, but once there’s the mention of her not keeping her money in the bank he gets an idea. An idea that may keep him on Tony’s good side after all. He goes to rob Minn empty house, but it turns out she’s there so he ends up killing her. However, he’s able to present Tony with a nice fat envelope of cash that just may save his ass. For good measure he calls Sack a prick, and then evesdrops while Tony is on the phone with him. He can be such a weasel.

Meadow invites the family to her apartment for Sunday dinner and we meet her new boyfriend, Finn, along with her roommates. Carmela gets weird about the “Infanta De Gracia” princess thing, but exhibits some strong homophobic tendencies when the dinner conversation turns to Melville’s book, Billy Budd. To celebrate Meadow’s upcoming birthday she and Carm agree to meet for their old tradition of tea the The Plaza. The conversation turns back to Billy Budd and they have another argument just before Meadow is due to leave for a ski trip in Canada. Meadow never knew Tony was going to therapy, but after talking to him and AJ she seems to know exactly what’s going on with her mother, and it ain’t menopause like her father thinks.

Bobby’s cases the jury during the trial proceedings and finds a hard-working family man who has two kids to “influence.” Hopefully the guy makes the right decision.
