Background: The poster was a waitress waiting on a table with two obnoxious customers. The kid waved an empty cup at the waitress. She came over and asked if he wanted anything. His mother, rather than correct his behavior, took a jab at her for asking the obvious. Some busy body at the next table couldn't stand their attitude and taught them a lesson about respect.
Hi, Since the waitress and the other customer had the last laugh on the kid and his mom, I wonder if it'd be okay to use "after that scene" (from the phrase "make a scene of themselves") in place of "after that episode"?
