Tyra slices cucumbers next to Landry. He glances over and tells her that she really should slice the cucumbers thinner. And, also, probably tomorrow, right? Who wants drippy cucumber sandwiches prepared the night before? Landry jokes that he probably just lost some man points in lecturing her on how cucumber sandwiches should be delicate. So then he just blurts out, "Have I told you I'm in a band now?" And Tyra tells him that that's like "forty thousand man points right there." I get so nervous at any WHIFF of a relationship between these two. It's like the Friday Night Lights quality litmus test. Is the season any good? I don't know, are Tyra and Landry together? Tyra tells Landry that she got her S.A.T. scores back, and then shows them to him. He compliments her for going up like a hundred points. Tyra isn't too pleased, she felt like she needed to go up more. Landry asks if he can tell her something: he is proud of how hard she's been working for this. Most girls that look like her don't have to work for anything. Uh, except for tips? Tucked into their g-strings? Tyra accepts his compliment and then jokes "You still think I'm good lookin' though right?" and Landry stutters and jokes about how she's okay.
Coach and Buddy are on Buddy's car lot for some reason. Buddy shows Coach a car he's been trying to sell for eighteen months, but that won't move off the lot. Coach interrupts Buddy and tells him that he doesn't like what's going on with the Boosters and redistricting. Buddy tells him not to worry about it; Coach says he doesn't want to NOT worry about it. Buddy tells Coach that this is all a lot bigger than Coach, this is about the Dillon Panthers. No one is going to stand by and watch the Panthers get dismantled. So if Coach doesn't want to know: don't ask. I have to confess that I don't totally get what the big deal is about gerrymandering the district is. Obviously, it has a distasteful quality about it, but what, exactly, is the big deal about keeping the team (in its current and 5-years-down-the-road manifestation) together?
Tim has taken Lyla to church. Just like on American Idol. It's her family's old church. They go into the sanctuary to sit down; the choir is practicing Christmas carols (because the episode did originally air in the winter). Lyla thinks Buddy put Tim up to this; he denies it. Lyla is not feeling the spirit; Tim says he just thought it might cheer her up. Lyla gets up and storms back out; out in the hallway, Tim catches up to her, and Lyla turns to him and gives us a bit of a smarmy performance. She wonders -- with head shaking preciousness -- what she's doing there, in Dillon. Why did she let her family go? Now she's all alone, and she has no family. Tim quietly tells her that she does have family, she does, and then wraps his arms around her.
