Coach cuddles up with a stuffed bear behind his head on the couch, sleepily telling Tami that he meant to get back up and help with the dishes but he got stuck to the couch. Oh no, mister. If she did the cooking, you do the cleaning! Isn't that, like the third commandment or something? How else do relationships last? This is probably why Al and Tipper have broken up!! Anyhow, Tami comes over and they get cozy on the couch together loving on each other and basking in the success of their near-miss of a dinner party. Coach sweetly tells Tami that she is good at what she does, "You wear a lot of hats," which is something she probably needs to hear about now. The phone rings and Coach picks it up with the always worrisome immediate "Yes, sir?"
Cut to the police station where an officer tells Coach that "the white kid" can go because he doesn't have a record, but "the black kid" is going to juvie. Coach is like "His name is Vince" and tells the officer that he'll vouch for Vince being a good kid, albeit one prone to mistakes. The officer says that Vince has used up his mistakes but lets Coach in to go talk with them. Coach enters the room to the boys both talking about how they can explain. Coach tells them to "Shhhh. Just listen." And then he tells the boys that they are at a crossroads. Luke is going to admit that everything is his fault-- Luke starts to protest but Coach immediately shuts him up. Then he tells Vince that he is going to cut the tough guy crap. They are both going to say exactly what Coach tells them to, and they are going to fix this. American pragmatism at work! Work with what you've got, not with moral absolutes! I can get behind that shit.
