Goofs

When in the family's safe house on the shore, discussing Bobby's funeral, AJ questions going, stating they are at "DEFCON 4". That is actually the 2nd least "dire" number, as DEFCON 5 is peace time, and DEFCON 1 is the highest state of alert and actually at war, in the military lexicon. See more »

Quotes

Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: [Waiting in a van] "Half an hour" he says, fucking hour and a half already.
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: He is busy, enjoy the music.

David Chase ends the saga in his own common way, he makes the viewer think and form their own conclusion.
15 June 2007 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

"Made In America" took all of us "Sopranos" fans by surprise, or did it really? If your like me and have watched every episode from the start over the years you learned that creator David Chase likes to make the viewer think, and he doesn't always tie up loose ends. With the way this episode ends it leaves the viewer to form their own conclusion and think of different things that could have happened in the diner. All other things seem to have been answered Uncle June is mind crazy from dementia, A.J. is now maybe an up and coming film student, and Meadow seems happy with her new flame. As for Tony's crew well Paulie is still around and takes the job of construction boss, and Sil appears down for the count as he's shown lifeless in the hospital. Well the big answer how's it gonna end for Tony the build and tension is classic in the diner with the Journey song "Don't Stop Believing" playing it's so fitting because it's tells the ups and downs of Americans, the love of thrill and chill and some win and some lose. Anyway the entire family joins in as each is shown entering except Meadow has problems parallel parking something that everyone can relate to. Stranger after stranger enters the diner some look shady like the guy in a black cap, the other with the members jacket who stares at Tony, and who entered just before A.J., plus the entrance of the black kids just add to the drama. Then the screen goes pitch black just after Tony has one final glance up! So what happened form your own answer because the master Chase didn't want to reveal it all in the end. One thing that art and drama should do which Chase does so well is to cause the viewer to think and become educated. And who's Carlo? Really a pretty good way to end the best family drama in TV history.
