Tony tosses a menu by Carmela's spot. Nearby, a young couple snuggles and shares an order of fries; in the back, a group of cub scouts hangs out in a booth. The quick shots of the other people in the restaurant serve as a reminder that Tony needs to be ever-vigilant. Even though the war with New York is over, there are still people out there who want Tony dead. Or imprisoned. Tony and Carmela greet each other with fond smiles. Carmela asks what looks good tonight, and Tony asks where AJ is. Carmela says he's on his way, and that Meadow is too, because she had to go to the doctor. Tony looks up sharply at that, and Carmela explains that she's going to switch birth control. Like stop taking birth control? Did Tony need that information? Carmela asks if Tony talked to his lawyer, and Tony says that Carlo is going to testify. Carmela has been around long enough to know what this means, and she looks briefly upset, but doesn't go into hysterics. As with Christopher's death, and when Tony told her they had to go into hiding, you can see the wheels turning in Carmela's brain as she rearranges her future plans to accommodate this new piece of information.
The bell rings again. A shady-looking guy in a Members Only jacket walks in, with AJ right behind him. Shady Guy goes to the counter. AJ sits down, and Tony hands him a menu. Shady Guy glances over at the Sopranos. An FBI agent trying to eavesdrop? A potential hit man trying to figure out when to make his move? Or just a curious bystander? Outside, Meadow pulls up and tries to parallel park, but hits the curb. She pulls forward to try again. She hits the curb again. She pulls forward again.
The waitress brings the Sopranos their drinks. The couple in the corner giggles. Shady Guy glances over at Tony again. The tension builds every time the bell on the door rings because of the heavy expectations of the last minutes of the last episode of the series. Carmela asks AJ how work's going, and he complains about the menial tasks he does. Carmela says he's making contacts for the future, and Tony agrees. AJ reminds Tony that he told them to "try to remember the times that were good," which I think is a reference to the final scene of the first season, but my memory fails and I haven't seen that episode in a long time. Tony doesn't remember saying it, but adds that he thinks it's true.
Meadow is still parallel parking. STILL. Couldn't AJ have been the bad parallel parker? Shady Guy stands up and walks toward the Sopranos' table. Tony glances up, sees no threat, and looks back at his menu. Shady Guy passes them by and heads into the men's room. Meanwhile, a couple of African-American young men walk in the front door. The waitress brings by a basket of onion rings, which Tony explains that he ordered for the table. They all take one and pop it into their mouths whole, like a communion wafer. Meadow has finally parked, and she hustles across the street. Inside, her family studies the menus and eats onion rings. The bell on the door rings one last time. Tony looks up. Journey sings, "Don't stop!" And the screen goes black. For ten seconds. And then the credits flash on the screen with no background music.
