Back up on the roof, Shirley is admiring Kenny's handiwork, saying that this "T" is the nicest "T" they've ever had. Kenny is visibly disturbed (more so than usual) and asks Shirley to accompany him on a stakeout that evening on top of the bowling alley, to capture the "T" thieves. Shirley mentally checks her social calendar, realizes she has nothing planned for the entire millenium, and agrees to join Kenny in the stakeout.
In the school hallway, Carol asks Molly whether she's signed up to teach the JV team yet. Molly says she was just on her way to sign up. Carol says that she wants to coach the team. As if stealing all Molly's thunder through high school and now adult life were not enough, Carol wants to steal the limelight from her once again by taking the position that Molly had wanted. With friends like Carol, who needs sharks? Molly asks for some motivation behind Carol's request and Carol just says she has a "Basketball Jones," which is an obscure Cheech and Chong song for you kiddies out there. Molly knows that it's all because of the Agnes Incident, and Carol starts whining that Molly shouldn't always be the champion of the underdog. Carol constantly felt like an underdog in high school. Molly corrects her by saying she was an "overdog," not an underdog. Carol considers telling Molly she was an "uglydog" but chooses to keep her big trap shut.
Back in Ed's office, Ed asks the two gentlemen about this prank that went horribly, horribly awry. The older guy says that it's a little complicated, but a videotape demonstration may help the explanation go quicker. They pop the video in, pop some popcorn, close the curtains, prop their feet up, and watch the video. It's a video of some winning lottery numbers coming up on the screen. Ed is given a lottery ticket to pay attention to while the video rolls. All six numbers are on the ticket. "This is a winning ticket," Ed says. His mom screams, "Oh my God!" while Dad tells Ed to run away, it's his ticket now since the guy gave it to him. The pranksters tell the Stevens family to relax, explaining that what they just witnessed was the prank that they pulled on Ted. I'm beginning to think there hasn't been a bigger family of suckers on TV since the Clampetts. The video was from last Wednesday, they bought the ticket on Friday with the winning numbers. It seems that Ted is a lottery freak, they bought the ticket and slipped it into his weekly pile of tickets. When the time came for the numbers to be drawn, they secretly slipped in this videotape to make Ted think that he won. These are two devious sons of bitches. I was taking notes like a madman in hopes of someday being half as evil as them someday. Ed thinks that Ted just needs a few days to calm down over the incident. However...there's more. As soon as Ted saw that tape, he went nuts. He quit his job and left his wife. Now he's holding them responsible. Ed agrees to take the case. His parents are sick to their stomachs, thinking Ed has gone off his rocker in deciding to represent these yahoos.
