Episode 18 “Big Girls Don’t Cry”

Less than one episode after spending 95% of his time comatose on heroin in Itlay, Christopher Moltisanti barges into a brothel and declares that the owner is a ‘drug addict’. The writing on this show never lets me down. Christopher came to collect money due to Tony Soprano and he leaves with nothing. Maybe it’s the drugs that are making him too soft?

Episode 17 “Commendatori”

FBI Warning! I find a lot of symbolism in the opening scene, as Tony and the gang attempt to watch a bootlegged copy of The Godfather Part II on DVD and the disc is stuck on the FBI Warning title. The symbolism here is not for danger of making illegal copies of Hollywood movies, but for the lives that these made men lead. It could also reference Big Pussy’s current status, as he’s a rat who’s working with the feds.

Episode 15 “Do Not Resuscitate”

“You tell that fat fuck Baccala, you tell to come out from his mouse hole, I wanna see him tomorrow.” Episode 15 marks the first appearance of a key Soprano character, Bobby Baccalieri. Through his own misfortune, Bobby inherits care of Corrado “Junior” Soprano, and thus the Bobby / Junior era of The Sopranos begins.

Episode 11 “Nobody Knows Anything”

Episode 11 kicks off in a brothel, where Tony, Paulie & Big Pussy are gettin’ their rocks off. I don’t remember seeing these guys hanging out in brothels in any other Sopranos episode. Most of the time they are either on a yacht or in a hotel room when it comes to goomar time.
