Didn't see Artie in the episode...Where and when did he appear?

Artie was at the funeral of chris m

Episode Recap[edit]

I have added in something several times but it kept getting deleted. So now, I join Wikipedia and add in a fact that I think is important. Christopher did not struggle while Tony was suffocating him. Isn't this significant? He is leaving a young woman a widow, a child an orphan, a lot of problems unresolved and he does not even struggle. (Tal123 (talk) 02:21, 30 December 2007 (UTC))

Christopher was incapacitated after the crash. He was already gasping for air, so he was likely too weak to put up any kind of defense against Tony. Hoof Hearted (talk) 12:06, 24 July 2017 (UTC)


There has to be some title significance with "heidi" perhaps the littler orphan storybook character of Heidi (an orphan) representing the now fatherless child of Christopher.

It refers to the names of the driver and passenger of the car that Chris almost collides with. Mrfridays 18:26, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
It should be noted that symbolism is frequently in the Sopranos and therefore many names and events are open to interpretation. Tony had always been a big fan of JFK so naming a girl Kennedy would make people scratch their heads. Also, some may argue that Kennedy (the girl) was the first catalyst leading to Christopher's death and one may laugh at the irony that someone named Kennedy was responsible for killing someone else. (Tal123 (talk) 02:19, 30 December 2007 (UTC))

As for the Heidi thing, again, we'll never know. We do not know if the writers knew of the orphan Heidi. Personally, for Caitlin (Christopher's daughter), the death of her father will benefit her in the long run. She is too young to have a memory of it. Christopher abused women and was a big materialist. It is likely that Kelli will remarry and hopefully a better family will come about.(Tal123 (talk) 02:19, 30 December 2007 (UTC))

I'm not sure about the significance of the name Heidi, but the name Kennedy was almost certainly chosen in reference to Chappaquiddick. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:22, 4 May 2016 (UTC)


Also, the Vegas trip paralleled tony's coma dream as well as the intro credits to the show.

Not sure what you are getting at here. How do you think the intro parallels his Vegas trip?Mrfridays 18:26, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Tony Soprano actually yells "I get it. I get it." Not "I did it." (According to the subtitles). I've made the change. Cwirtanen 17:05, 7 November 2007 (UTC)


Anybody know what that song was that played for the short period from Tony on the plane, then driving to the Casino? Cheers, Rothery 15:27, 16 May 2007 (UTC).

Why did Tony kill christopher? I can't see what the reason would be unless it was the baby seat —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:44, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Character and episode name?[edit]

After Kennedy (at the wheel) narrowly misses the car Christopher is driving and the car swerves off the road, Heidi says something like, "Kennedy, maybe we should go back and see if they're okay." But Kennedy refuses. Is this an allusion to Ted Kennedy's not going back for the drowned girl at Chappaquidick? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:29, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
