I don't know, my user name just always pestered me. My name is Garth, and I figured no one else on the board has that name, so why not just shorten it and make it easier.
Upon viewing this episode again, I still think my vote for 6 is correct. But, there are some really great scenes, they just dont mesh in a way that creates a great episode. It is a good, seamless intro for Johnny Sac. He is immediately likeable and joins the club, which is essential for his character.
I also think the conflict between Tony & Carm really does a great job of illustrating, in a realistic manner, the nature of their relationship. Tony and Carm are still struggling after the reveal of Dr. Melfi's gender in the last episode as well as Father Phil spending the night. It just seems very realistic. The argument during their anniversery, and then Carm purchasing furniture to make herself feel better and to hurt Tony's wallet. And finally culminating in their make-up, by the pool. Of course Carm doesn't completely buy it, she knows who Tony is and to that extent has no illusion of him.
I also like the scene with Tony & Junior at the baseball game. It is interesting watching Junior ask Tony how he is doing. It is one of the rare times we see Junior care for anyone except himself. It adds an extra layer of irony, to know if it would save him a dollar Junior would have Tony killed.
And a final note, watch the scene with Tony at the horse ranch with Hesh. Besides our brief look at the ducks, this is the first time we see Tony's undying love of animals.
