The final line "...And a silver sixpence in her shoe" is all-but-forgotten nowadays, at least in part because sixpence pieces aren't used anymore in Britain and never were in the USA. Some people buy antique coins especially for the purpose (and for considerably more than 6p); whether that also counts towards their Something Old is up for debate.

bar. This is somewhat a prank by another veteran bartender to the apprentice Tsubasa, because Ryu and Tsubasa opening a new bar together is kinda parallel to starting a new married life together. Even their nameplate has "R&T" in it.
