Storyline

Christopher and Paulie are out making collections but things get out of hand and they soon have a body to dispose of. They decide to dispose of it in Pine Barrens in South Jersey. They get to the woods only to find that their victim is still alive. He manages to run off on them and in the pursuit, Christopher and Paulie get themselves lost. As darkness falls, the cold takes over, and it's particularly hard on Paulie who has lost one of his shoes. They take refuge in an abandoned truck but have no choice but to call Tony and ask him to rescue them. Tony is still seeing Gloria Trillo, usually at lunch time. He decides to come clean and tell Dr. Melfi that he's seeing another of her patients. Gloria is something of a Jekyll and Hyde however with wide mood swings. Melfi asks Tony if Gloria's behavior reminds him of anyone. When Jackie Jr. fails to call her, Meadow is certain he is cheating on her. She sets out to find out what he's up to. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The episode's idea came from a dream 'Sopranos' director Timothy Van Patten had about Paulie and Christopher being lost in New Jersey's Pine Barrens. The dream stemmed from childhood memories of stories Van Patten's father used to tell him about a creature that lived in the Barrens. Van Patten and co-writer Terence Winter each received Writers Guild and Edgar awards for the script, plus an EMMY writing nomination. See more »
