Cut to Melfi's office, where she's wearing a skirt that shows even more leg than normal. That's probably significant, considering that they had her in pants earlier in the episode, but it also makes it seem like she knew in advance how this particular session was going to go down, which seems unlikely. Anyway, Tony is claiming that he just broke up with a new mistress, and that he felt really bad about breaking her heart. He says that it was just a brief fling, and that after a while, he felt like he "had to cut off the leg. Not leg, affair. Did I say leg?" Hee! Now that's a Freudian slip. And also probably why Melfi's skirt is so short. He explains about the brooch, and describes it as something he sends to every girl when he's "easing out the door." Well, yeah, but he didn't send one to Irina. Or Gloria. Or the blonde lesbian Icelandic trivia freak, for that matter. Anyway, he thinks for a moment, and then finally comes clean and admits that it was Svetlana who dumped him instead of the other way around. "You know why she didn't want to see me anymore?" he asks. "She said that I was 'high-maintenance.' And this is after all the time, and all the money, and all the fucking Prozac, and all the fucking cocksucking motherfucking dream interpretations. And she said she didn't want to prop me up? And this from a broad who walks around on crutches half the time. Nice, huh?" Whew. You know, I'm not sure why, but I really get a kick out of being the only recapper who routinely gets to transcribe things like "fucking cocksucking motherfucking dream interpretations." It's just fun for me somehow.
