Tony is highly depressed and can hardly get himself out of bed in the morning leading Dr. Melfi to add to his medication. He practically lives in his bathrobe and the only ray of sunshine is the beautiful and voluptuous Italian dentistry student house-sitting for his next door neighbors, the Cusamanos. He later realizes that the beautiful woman next door is not really as she appeared to be. He drags himself to his sessions with Melfi and it's after one of these that Uncle Junior's less than capable hit men make their try against Tony. He survives and for public consumption, Tony tells the police it was an attempted car-jacking. The attempted hit seems to invigorate Tony who is pretty sure he knows who was behind it all. All he needs is proof to start settling accounts. —garykmcd

It's a hit!
Tony spots a beautiful young woman next door named Isabella, a student who is staying at the Cusamano's house while they are away. Tony eventually takes her out for coffee, and her description of her native town sends the poor, stressed-out guy off into la-la-land, where he pictures Isabella sitting in a rocking chair with a small baby in her arms. The look she momentarily gives the camera is as enigmatic as Mona Lisa's smile. Or maybe Tony's mother's. Carmela discovers Tony's new interest and reads him the riot act. Later, he will discover things are not necessarily what they seem. Meanwhile, Junior's hit on Tony (triggered by Tony's indelicate remarks about Junior being a tuna eater) comes to fruition. The episode at times has a dream-like, elegiac quality and proves once again that this series can do anything it wants, thanks to smart writing and high production values.
