Carmela has somehow wandered herself into a paint store and right into Vic. She acts like she just bumped into him looking for a paint roller, but she quickly confesses that she just wanted to see him again. He apologizes, she apologizes, he apologizes, and she tells him that she wanted to thank him for being so strong. She says that if he had come over that day, she would have done something that she would regret for the rest of her life. She says that one day she might not be married ("Maybe someday, I will be free."), but for now, she's thankful that he was strong enough for the both of them. Vic is still flirty with the eyes, but looks like he's thankful to be alive. She kisses him on the cheek and leaves. A kid that looks like A.J. on a bad day walks over, carrying two Styrofoam cups of coffee. They sell that in a paint store? And when did Ramon turn into Evil A.J.? Vic thanks Christ that he's still alive. He asks Evil A.J. if he knows who that woman's husband is.
Melfi's office. Tony asks for the number of a good shrink he can give to Irina. He tells Melfi how she tried to kill herself. "Cost me three grand," he said. Melfi says that Irina should have seen the attending psychologist in the hospital. Tony explains that the doctor was Romanian, and there's "some beef that goes back centuries." Melfi asks if Tony feels responsible for the suicide attempt. Tony: "I was banging her for two years." Melfi: "Was that a hardship on her?" Tony: "That's cute." Tony says he's been through so many women, and he doesn't know why he can't just let her go. He says she's a good kid, and he thinks she's seriously depressed. Melfi wonders why Tony's ending it. Tony says that's what he's supposed to do, that's the right thing. Melfi says she's never passed judgment on his or any patient's sex life. Tony says he's been married for twenty years. "What's wrong with you?" he asks. "Why now?" Melfi asks. Tony confesses that it's not fun anymore, and asks again for her to recommend somebody for Irina.
Richie and Jackie are back at Junior's. "Larry's out," Richie says. Junior curses and says he knew this would happen. "Larry and Albert are not the problem," Richie says. "Tony is the fucking problem." He says that if he takes Tony out of the picture, everybody will come along. Jackie Jr. says he'd do it himself if he could. "Who's that speaking here?" Junior asks as he looks around the room. "Is somebody speaking?" Jackie shuts up. Junior says that he needs to think about this right now. "We gotta screw our courage to the post," he says. The same words that Lady Macbeth once used. Junior hugs Richie and tells him he's a good boy. He tells them to go home. Richie and Jackie leave. Junior watches them go. He calls Richie a "fucking loser." He says that Richie couldn't sell it. He tells Bobby to pay attention so he can learn something. He says they're best off with someone who knows how to split his enemies. Richie couldn't sell it because he's not respected. Tony's respected, even with his impulsiveness and selfishness. "I'm better off with Tony," he concludes. Bobby beams at Junior. Jun says he wants to see Tony at the doctor's office tomorrow. "I'm in awe of you," Bobby says.
