In the courtroom, final arguments are being presented. The prosecutor says that if someone played a prank and stole a Stop sign from a busy intersection, there would inevitably be a crash and those people would be held responsible. This lottery hoax ruined his client's life and these two jokers should be held responsible. Ed says that stealing Stop signs and doing what his clients did are two different things. There's no way that they could have expected him to go nuts. For some ungodly reason, Ed finds this moment to be a perfect opportunity to tell the old story about how he was fired from a successful job, went home, and found his wife doing a naked horizontal mambo with the mailman. For some people, having a drastic life change is the best thing they can go through. Ed truly believes that Ted's better off now without his crappy job and his estranged wife, and that it was the lottery ticket that gave him the courage to change his life.
Back up on the roof of the alley, Kenny mentions that there's a big basketball game tonight and everyone in town should be there, thus the "T" should be safe. His manly instincts then lead him to believe that Shirley and he can leave their post and go watch the game. Shirley agrees to go to the game with him. Kenny says that he thinks this experience has brought them closer. Shirley dissipates any sexual overtones from Kenny with a curt "I disagree."
Back in the courtroom, the judge is convinced that the defendants could have had no idea that Ted would go nuts. Therefore, the Judge finds for the defendants. Everyone's happy and Ed's parents are finally proud of their little boy.
At the gym that evening, the Varsity girls come bounding out onto the court. When it comes time for the JV team, Ed hits the boom box, playing "Also Sprach Zarathustra." Molly dims the lights and a spotlight shines on a door. Ed announces the team in a booming deejay voice. The girls slowly come out, shielding their eyes from the spotlight.
The game begins and the girls are on fire, hitting one basket. After that, it's a major struggle for them to even look alive.
