Outside, Tony checks his watch.
"I don't wanna go out," Livia mumbles. Carmela just stands there, smiling brightly. Livia asks if it's Anthony, "those indictments," and she goes on to say that "his father could take it in stride but he can't." Carmela's smile tightens, and she mutters at Livia, "I don't believe you."
Tony stews in the car.
Carmela tries to hurry Livia up. Livia fusses with the bedclothes: "We just went to a wedding." Carmela, trying to keep the impatience out of her voice, says that "that was a big to-do -- this way, we get to spend some quality time together." Livia ignores her. Carmela prods, "The Manor is gonna stop serving brunch any minute." Livia approaches Carmela, her eyes wide: "Did he cheat on you again?" Carmela rolls not just her eyes but her whole head, then objects to Livia's thinking that she has "some other agenda that I have to talk to you about" when she just wants to do something nice for Livia, finishing, "Don't flatter yourself." Duly chastened, Livia agrees to "throw something on." Another eye-roll from Carmela.
Outside, Carmela nags Livia to buckle her seatbelt. Tense music. The Benz wagon pulls away, past the Suburban with Tony lying down out of sight in the front seat. As soon as he sees them go, Tony gets out of the car and grabs a gym bag out of the back.
Inside Livia's apartment, Tony checks the place over, then stashes the contents of the gym bag in a series of sweater bags and hat boxes. More tense music.
"It's not definite, I just -- thought I'd tell you. In case I don't show up for an appointment," Tony tells Melfi. Melfi confirms in a dry tone of voice that he's planning a vacation, "but you're not sure exactly when it will be." "Right," Tony nods, adding as an afterthought, "I may never go." Melfi looks puzzled. Tony says that there's "a strong possibility that it could happen." Melfi closes her eyes for a moment, then decides to go ahead and ask if Tony's vacation has anything to do with "what's been on the news lately." Tony doesn't answer, which Melfi takes as a yes, saying pointedly that if he suddenly stops coming to his appointments, "I will assume that you are on vacation and I should wait to be contacted?" "That would be a good assumption," Tony says, not meeting her eye.
