The Sopranos: Funhouse

Tony is more than thrilled that both Janice and Richie are out of his hair and plots to soon get Livia out of the way as well. After a plate of bad food, Tony begins having hallucinations of sex with Dr. Melfi and one of Pussy as a fish, which convinces him that Pussy has gone to the Feds.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Melfi: After two years treating you I've learned things. And I pick up sorrow coming from you.

Tony: It's fuckin' graduation day, so I might as well take this opprotunity to say I'm proposing you to get your button.
Christopher: I fucking deserve it. Got no spleen, Gene!

(During a therapy sesson)
Tony: I had a dream I fucked your brains out. Right on that desk, and you loved it.
Dr. Melfi: (Surprised) Well, you threw that at me like a rock.



Episode References
Silvio's Godfather impersonation is the same impersonation he did in "Guy Walks Into a Psychiatrist's Office."



Analysis
The episode contains several instances of foreshadowing of Salvatore "Big Pussy" Bonpensiero's murder. While dreaming, Tony sees Pussy as a fish, a hint that he would soon be "sleeping with the fishes" as he does after Tony, Silvio, and Paulie toss him into the ocean. Throughout the episode, a creaking sound can be heard every time Tony dreams. This same sound is later heard on the boat when Tony, Silvio, and Paulie murder Pussy.
