Tony, on the other hand, feels that therapy has "gotta start showing results, or end." He wants to know the story on his panic attacks. Melfi responds to this with a lot of big words like "cognitive behavioral therapy," but Tony balks at her suggestion that he begin seeing someone else. "If you're ready to commit to mental health, I say that's great," she says, but he'll have to "delve deeper and focus." He starts talking about his recent panic attack, telling her that it started when "[his] daughter brought home a black," and he caught them "snuggling" on the couch, which they probably were but he never actually saw. Anyway, he recaps last week's rewind and restart, and Melfi gets excited when she learns that he was grabbing his meat. That's actually a lot less disgusting than it sounds. Although they do use the Italian pronunciation of "capicolla," which is "gabagool." All I can say to that is, thank god for closed captioning. Melfi makes the connection to his first attack (the one featuring the "penis-eating ducks"), which also involved meat. She's all ready to deconstruct this oddly disturbing little quirk of Tony's psyche, but his cell phone rings, and of course he has to answer it because "it's the busy season." He stands in the corner, but Melfi is still perturbed to be overhearing an obviously criminal conversation. When he sits back down, she tries to get him back on track, but the moment is lost.
Bookie HQ. Christopher and a couple of guys have some TVs and phones set up and are taking bets on college football. Furio likes Iowa, but Christopher bet it all on USC, presumably because he didn't know that their opponent (Oregon) has an All-American field goal kicker. A last-second kick blows the spread, and the guy running the show tells Christopher that he should have laid off the action on Philadelphia, which Paulie always used to do. Suddenly, that $6,000 Chris owes Paulie is looking pretty big.
