Ryan Bingham enjoys living out of a suitcase for his job, travelling around the country firing people, but finds that lifestyle threatened by the presence of a potential love interest, and a new hire.
When Alex is at the Atlanta airport, she asks Ryan if he knows a good place for ribs. Ryan tells her to go to "Fat Matt's", a real rib shack on Piedmont Avenue. Jason Reitman is a big fan of the restaurant. In return, owners Matt and Kelly Harper presented Reitman with a card entitling him to a "lifetime of ribs".
So they don't ever actually do it?
Ryan Bingham: No. No. It's just talk.
Natalie Keener: How do you know? Do you follow up?
Ryan Bingham: I mean, no, nothing good's gonna come of that.
Natalie says she wants to be like Alex, when she's Alex's age "in about 15 years." But Alex is 34, which would make Natalie 19. If she graduated college with a psych degree, she should be at least 21 or older.
Over the end credits, the camera glides over the clouds. Much like the view from a plane.
