Back at Ed's office, he's talking to Molly. Ed's trying desperately to brainwash Molly into seeing that he's doing the right thing here: Coach Kerwin's a good guy who just wants to keep his job. Molly says that he's holding a very smart and gifted child back. Just because Clark can't run fast, that shouldn't keep him out of college. The gym grade should be based on attitude and perseverance, not how fast you can run or how many sit-ups you can do. Granted, this argument is coming from Molly, so take it with a grain of salt and a bag full of Quarter Pounders with cheese. Molly tells Ed that Carol's mad. How mad, Ed wants to know. Molly says, "Take the word 'mad' and add about ten thousand 'very's in front of it." Ed blames the rift between him and Carol on the whole Bonnie Hane thing. Ever since he slept with Bonnie, things have been different between him and Carol. He thinks they have to find their footing again and asks Molly what to do. Molly says that she wants Ed to take this in the best way possible, but Einstein was put on this earth to discover the theory of relativity; the guy who invented Kraft cheese was put on the earth to individually wrap cheese. She's not sure what she's been put on this earth for, but it certainly isn't to be the go-between for the greatest relationship of our time. I thought she was talking about Romeo and Juliet, but she was referring to Carol and Ed. She informs Ed that she has her own life to live, which revolves mostly around Oprah repeats and ice-cream sandwiches. Molly adds that when Ed boinked Bonnie Hane, it even gave her the heebie-jeebies.
Carol's then shown standing in the doorway. Shirley comes on the intercom and says, "Carol Vessey is here to see you." Ed tells Shirley that Carol's already in. Shirley says, "Roger that" like she's an eighteen-wheeler truck driver instead of a lawyer's assistant. It's silent in the room until Carol says she was wrong about Frank. Carol says after Ed was through humiliating her in court, she did some research and found that she had failed Shawn Ellis, a promising basketball player for Stuckeyville High and one of Coach Kerwin's star athletes six years earlier. Because she failed him, Shawn couldn't go on to a college basketball team. So this is Coach Kerwin's roundabout way of getting back at Carol...destroying the life of her prize student, just like she did his. "See how this holds up in court," she says, slamming down some files on his desk and walking out. "You've got to admit, that was a cool exit," Molly says. "I'm so screwed," Ed admits.
