Sam comes home and finds out that his parents have bought him an Atari system because, as his mother says, "Sometimes, it's okay to spend a little extra money on such a good kid." Dad Weir says he wants Sam to teach him about all the space invaders. Sam bursts into tears because he realizes that his parents aren't so bad and because he knows that this gift is not to assuage a philandering father's guilt. ["There seems to be some controversy about this on the forums. Some feel, as Maggie does, that Sam was crying tears of relief and gratitude for his own good parents. I, and others, think it was that he associated the gift of the Atari with the cheating dad, and figures this is Dad Weir's way of telling him." -- Wing Chun] Dad Weir is floored by Sam's crying and he remarks to Mom, "He must have really wanted that game." I admit that this scene made me very teary.
Neal rides through the dark streets still trying the remote. He finally is able to open a door. When he sees his father's 'Vette, he throws the remote at it, then rides off. As one door opens, another door closes. This is the end of the innocence. Insert your own cliché here.
Back at Laser Dome, "Freebird" is still going, which is understandable since the song is about four hours too long.

We see Ken and Amy again and she's rubbing his muttonchops. "Freebird" is still playing, twenty years later.
