Ben Stiller gets arrested for being rude to a stewardess and for saying "bomb." Robert De Niro races to the airport and does a quick interrogation. De Niro approves of the wedding and asks "will you be my son-in-law?" Stiller proposes to Pam. She says yes. Pam's mother says that all that's missing is for her and De Niro to meet Stiller's parents. De Niro watches a surveillance recording confirming his suspicion that Stiller did in fact flush the toilet.

Jack Byrnes: Sure. Interesting color. You pick it?
Greg Focker: Oh, no, the guy at the counter. Why?
Jack Byrnes: Well, they say geniuses pick green. But you didn't pick it.
