After the two are finished, the waitress is seen sleeping naked while the salesman is dressed up in a suit and appears to be completing some paperwork.

The naked waitress the wakes up and tells him of her plan to leave the diner, so she can spend some more time with the salesman, with whom she has presumably fallen in love.
