Tony wants his mommy. Which, in theory, makes sense. But doesn't really make sense at all if your mother is Livia. But she's not in her room. So he stops into the nursing home's office with a stack of Mario Lanza CDs. The nursing home matron says that Livia's with the other "girls" in aquatherapy. Tony and I both choke on our coffee at the notion of Livia in a bathing suit, let alone being called a girl. It's all very strange. Tony leaves the message for Livia that her house sold, and bolts out the door. I'd run too. Wouldn't you?
Paulie's stalking Pussy. He takes him to a steam bath in the hopes of getting him to undress in front of him. Because, as I said, he's a gross, gross man. Well, all right, he wants to see if Pussy is wearing a wire. By watching him undress. Pussy fails the test. He won't do it. He says his doctor said that steam and sauna are bad for his back and his blood pressure. Paulie looks grim.
Tony meets up with Little Stevie to discuss the CWTIPO. Stevie's been doing some research, and it seems that the CWTIPO is into Pussy for close to thirty grand. He could be setting Pussy up, in the hopes that Tony will have him killed and the debt will be more or less erased. Tony wants to believe it, but the theory doesn't really explain Pussy's strange behavior.
The CWTIPO is in the shower at the brothel. He hears something, but he gets no response when he calls out. Well, no response except for a police badge shoved in his face. CWTIPO, the madam, an unnamed wiseguy, and the French maid doctor all get arrested. Tony watches the bust on the news with his family. Anthony Jr. wants to know what a bordello is. Meadow fills him in and then goes on a rant about legalized prostitution. Carmela and Tony point out that, although discussing sex may be appropriate in the nineties, in the Soprano household it is still 1954. They actually said that, I didn't make it up.
CWTIPO is out of jail already, and he's stuck in traffic. He leans on his horn until he gets the on-duty uniform's attention. He pulls out a badge, and the cop lets him through. CWTIPO wends his way through the traffic jam and heads out to the Route 1 bridge. Where he tosses himself off. Crikey.
