Jennifer goes off on a laundry list of her own, complaining that she's being conned by Tony, and that Richard is "protective and patriarchal," which she feels shouldn't have been a surprise, since she married a man ten years her senior. Towards the end, she "accidentally" names Tony as her patient, and Dr. Bogdanovich is pretty nonchalant about it. "I always thought it was that other guy in the news, that Augie Aprile." Oh god, not other Aprile family member who's name I'm gonna have to learn. Enough is enough already. It's called The Sopranos for a reason, you know, and it ain't Meadow's vocal talents. Anyway, Melfi is at a loss to explain why she divulged the name, but points out that Richard is especially worried because Tony is so high up in the mob. "So if he was just some button-man you wouldn't be treating him?" he asks. "[Boggie], please, huh, with the terminology?" is her only response. He ticks off yet again all the reasons why she should refer Tony to another therapist, and Melfi seems finally to be in agreement.
Gerald Levin: I don't know I thought you said this was gonna be shocking?
David Chase: Oh, it will be. It's shocking, and best of all, it's real. It's the true story of two people picked to sit in a psychiatrist's office and find out what happens when people stop being nice and start breaking the social compact.
Gerald Levin: Yeah. Thanks, Dave. Way to rub it in AGAIN that we're the only family of networks without a successful reality show.
David Chase: You mean G-String Divas doesn't count?
George Lucas: You know, I find reality to be highly overrated. There's never enough Ewoks.
Cut to Livia's basement, where Janice is giving the place a once-over with a metal detector. Upstairs, Tony starts banging on the door, and she has to run up to let him in because she changed the locks "the instant that Ukrainian dye-job moved out." Tony warns her about messing with the Russians, and points out that he's been involuntarily dragged into the whole leg imbroglio. Janice refers to the record collection in question as "a window into Ma's soul," and professes her desire to make a documentary about World War II music. Dude, I'd be surprised if Janice can even spell "documentary." When she tells the still angry Tony that she has work to do, he replies. "Yeah, good luck finding the lost Dutchman's lost gold mine," and while the meaning of that particular reference escapes me, the meaning of the hand gesture he makes while saying it is unfortunately all too clear. Anyone with a tape of the episode and some time to kill now has the opportunity to be really disgusted by that joke. Which by the way, it was. A joke, I mean. I would never actually do that. Well, almost never. Anyway, Janice is convinced that he plans to tear the house apart looking for buried treasure as soon as she's gone, but Tony just feels sorry for her. I gotta say, though, stashing money around the house is a very Livia sort of thing to do, so I wouldn't be too surprised if something does turn up.
