Tony sits in Melfi's waiting room. If Tony has gained some weight recently, and doesn't have Carmela around to do his clothes shopping, it's nice that all of his clothes seem a little too tight. His pants in this scene are easily about three inches too short. It's a nice touch. Melfi wordlessly shows Tony into her office. Once inside, Tony sighs and rubs his eyes, looking like he doesn't really want to be there. They both sit silently, and the camera pulls back to emphasize the distance between them. Tony fidgets, and Melfi waits him out. Finally, Tony thanks her for taking the appointment. Melfi doesn't speak. Tony says that he knows he's on probation, and adds that he deeply regrets what he did. He points to the hallway, in case she forgot where it happened. Melfi just nods and waits. Tony shifts around and then says, "My nephew's fiancée." More silent Melfi. Tony says he knows what she's thinking, and tells her that nothing happened, but that it could've very easily. He says that "this young lady" really got to him. Melfi kind of smirks, and Tony bleats, "What?" Melfi proudly says that this is a very big step, because Tony came to discuss his impulse instead of acting on it without thinking. Tony says he always thinks. Melfi reminds him about "having sex with [his] mistress's cousin, like the mistress wasn't enough to piss off [his] wife." Tony has no comeback, and Melfi leans back, a little too self-satisfied for my taste. Yes, we all know that you are morally superior to Tony. Congratulations. What an accomplishment. Maybe next you can take pride in the fact that you're smarter than AJ.
