Melfi gently explains that she does, in fact, like the cut of his jib, but nevertheless demands to know why Tony has suddenly decided to fall in love with her. "My training teaches me to go fairly quickly to the idea that what you really want is to come back to therapy," she explains, which is probably true, but still misses the point that he wanted to fuck her even when they were in therapy. Which is why I'm sort of surprised that the costume department broke with continuity here and gave Melfi a skirt that goes below the knee. Unless maybe we're meant to think that she made a conscious decision not to dress provocatively for this session. "I want you," insists Tony. "And not just for the smart things you say. I want your skin. I want your mouth. I want your eyes." I was actually surprised that there weren't a lot of women in the forums swooning over that line, especially when I remembered how many were finding themselves a little damp and aromatic at the sight of Tony driving a bulldozer last year. I guess you all only find him sexy when he's burying a guy he just beheaded. But don't worry. I personally only like to stalk fictional TV redheads, so I'm not going to judge you for it. Melfi continues with some psychobabble about this being a normal occurrence between doctor and patient, but Tony interrupts her by planting a kiss right on her lips. She doesn't kiss back, but she doesn't really pull away, either. When Tony finally breaks the liplock, however, she whispers a very forceful "Don't do that." Tony's face instantly goes cold, and he steps back. "Forget about the way Tony Soprano makes his way in the world," he says, "That's just to feed his children. There's two Tony Sopranos. You've never seen the other one. That's the one I want to show you." And with that, he leaves, and Melfi breathes a huge sigh of relief.
