    Everything's provided for

    At video gaming center, Ted is scanning Noel for recording devices:

    Ted: What's in this case?
    Noel: I brought my game-pod. Original Marway tissue architecture. I know it's kind of obsolete. I couldn't afford the Antenna 15 upgrade. I figured out this method...
    Ted: You won't need it tonight. Everything's provided for.

    How to understand the sentence ends with "for" ?

    Re: Everything's provided for

    The for at the end doesn't really fit logically, but it doesn't sound unnatural. The speaker was thinking something like "we have provided for every eventuality" or "we have provided a solution for every need."
