That night in bed, Carmela can't sleep. She turns on the light, and Tony wakes up, so she takes that as a license to start bitching about AJ and the fact that he has a "dead streak" that chills her to the bone. Tony thinks that AJ's just spoiled. Carmela points out that AJ had lots of friends with money, and they're all in Ivy League universities now. Maybe AJ's just not very smart? Carm reminds Tony how AJ said God was dead on his confirmation day. Tony tries to get Carm to hush up so he can go back to sleep, but there's a knock at their bedroom door. Meadow comes in, saying that she saw their light on. She sits at the foot of the bed, and tells her parents that she's going to California and she doesn't know how long. She explains that Finn took a year off so he could be there for her when Tony was hospitalized, but now he's going back to dental school and she wants to be with him. Carmela thought she and Finn were having problems. Hey, me too! Meadow gets all defensive, which makes me wonder whether she ever talked about it with Carmela, or if Tony spilled the beans. Meadow says that she doesn't know whether she wants to go to law school or medical school. AJ listens in from the hallway and looks disappointed. Carmela points out that Meadow has "a high class problem." Meadow says that Finn's dad can get her a lab job, which would look great on a medical school application. Carmela is kind of pissed that Meadow is following a man around. She adds that Meadow is dropping a bomb on them and they might need some time to adjust. Meadow says that she had to make plane reservations. Carm asks Meadow whether she will be home for Christmas, and Meadow says that she doesn't know. She kisses each of her parents good night. Carmela stares forward, looking stunned. Tony just snuggles into his pillow and tries to go back to sleep.
Tony and Phil meet at a warehouse club, along with Sil and the Hairdo. They discuss the office park job, and Tony complains that John was willing to work with them, but Phil's not. Phil says that John is boss in name only at this point, and so Phil's decision is final. Tony and Phil argue further over the vitamin deal, when they're really arguing over whether or not Tony respects Phil's authority as acting boss. They leave with things looking unsettled.
