Vic finds David drunk at a bar. David thanks Vic for coming. Vic says that Chris has been worried about him. David apologizes for everything. He says he's broke and not gambling anymore. He's crying again, saying he screwed up. Vic says they'll get him back on his feet. David asks Vic where he and Christine were when he needed help in the first place. Vic tells David not to ever talk about Christine like that. "Oh, fuck her. Fuck you!" David whines. Vic asks how much David lost. David says that he lost everything. The car, the business, everything. Vic informs David that Eric got into Georgetown today, and tells David that as soon as Eric's out of the house, David's got to go as well. David snuffles, and Vic quickly realizes that David must have gambled away Eric's college money as well. He curses out David and says he'll pay for Eric's college. David puts his arm around Vic and calls him a good man. He thanks him. Vic realizes that David shouldn't have been able to gamble away the business, since it's in Christina's name. David says he got mixed up with some bad people. He says that he owes Tony Soprano lots of money, so Tony and his guys came in and ate the business from the inside like termites. "It's a bust-out." Vic asks about the cops, and David scoffs. "They're animals, Vic."
Tony watches some war propaganda films as A.J. does homework on the floor in front of him. Tony's phone rings. It's Paulie. He says the other party that said he saw something that they know didn't happen now knows that he didn't see what they know didn't happen. "Sleep well, my friend," Paulie says to Tony. Tony holds back tears as he looks over at A.J.
Tony walks into the powder room and sits down. He is in shock. He is upset. He is happy. He sniffs and blinks and sighs. He laughs and cries.
"You seem relieved," Melfi says to Tony. Tony says he is. Melfi asks if the witness just changed his or her mind. Tony says he doesn't know what happened. Melfi looks skeptical. Tony tells Melfi that he met a woman in Italy that reminded him of her. She was smart. The woman told him that he's his worst enemy. Melfi scoffs that it's a bit clichÃ©d to say something like that. Tony says that you had to be there, that this woman was one of those "witchy broads." Melfi says she didn't mean to sound "disparaging." He says it's a different culture over there. "Like sybils." Melfi: "Sybils?" Tony says you had to be there. "Okay, so I wanted to fuck her." Melfi blushes as Tony says he brings all of this on himself, and that's what she keeps telling him. Melfi says that's what's at root, but the question is, how does he stop. Tony smiles, nods, and says he dodged a "very big bullet" today and he's feeling good, so he doesn't want any more psychiatry today. He gets up and leaves the room.
