Tony lies on the operating table, unconscious for his surgery. Dr. Rachel Green's Dad peer into Tony's wound and says, "Oh my God! I just found Jimmy Hoffa!" Everyone chuckles. Do kids nowadays even know who Jimmy Hoffa is?
Meadow reads to Tony from his dinosaur book. Paulie walks in with Jason Barone, and Tony gives his condolences. Tony reintroduces Jason to Meadow, and they seem to share sort of an interesting look, but who knows if anything will ever come of that. Tony and Jason reminisce about their trips to sporting events, and Meadow says that she has to go. Tony says proudly that Meadow wants to be a doctor, and Paulie adds, "Also considering law." Tony gets down to business, despite the fact that he can't even sit up on his own. He heard that Jason wants to sell Barone Sanitation to Chuckie Cinelli. Jason thinks it would be the best thing for his widowed mother, and adds that Tony would get a severance package. Tony strongly suggests that Jason not sell the business right now, and offers to help Jason to find a better buyer when he gets out of the hospital. Jason -- clearly not in the loop on what happens when Tony strongly suggests something -- isn't convinced. Paulie asks Jason if he even knows what his EBITDA is, and clearly Paulie has been watching CNBC in his spare time. Jason seems confused. Tony tells Jason, "You let me handle this. I don't want to see you get hurt. The carting business -- it's a different corporate culture." Paulie says that they should let Tony rest, and Jason leaves.
