J.D. is driving Luke and some other rich kids around in his fancy S.U.V. They're listening to rap music and bitching about how Luke's wallet is still missing and Luke isn't doing anything to get it back. J.D. smarms that he knows East Dillon is like a prison, but he never thought Luke would become someone's bitch. Conveniently, they drive right past Vince walking on the side of the road. Luke tells J.D. to stop the car, and gets out. Vince shit talks a bit until Luke reaches out and knocks the paper plate out of his hands and Luke snaps into action and punches the shit out of Luke. They're on the ground grappling for a while when a police siren sounds and the S.U.V. boys all run back to the car and take off. Vince and Luke keep going at it (in front of a shack-y taqueria -- making everyone wonder once again where the Latinos are on this show about TEXAS) until the policemen drag them apart.
Commercials. The Taylors. Three black ex-football players are at the table. Tami makes conversation with Deacon about how long he's been at Bethel Baptist, when Deacon cuts the shit and asks Coach why they are there. The man next to him moans that he's just trying to enjoy his meal, but Coach -- with his "trust me, I've got this" hair on his head-- tells him that it's a good question. He starts to explain that he's been coaching at the school, which he imagines they think of as their high school, and that he's facing a lot of challenges and problems. Deacon doesn't let him go any further than that and tells Coach that with all due respect, "people from your part of town pretty frequently tell us about our problems." PREACH! He gives us all a quick lesson in how those problems came about: in the 80s, the west side got all the money, malls, and development, while the east side got forgotten. He tells Coach that he's going to pass on the lecture about their problems right now. Tami and Eric stare wide-eyed for a moment before Tami starts trying to smooth things over: "I'm sure nobody needs a lecture here!" she smiles. She tells them all she wanted was to get to know them and have them know her husband and how much he loves football and those kids. Coach just says that it's been hard playing football when nobody's in the stands to appreciate the effort. Deacon cracks, "You like losing with everybody watching?" and Coach tells him that that's what they're trying to fix. The doorbell rings, and moments after Tami goes to answer it, Eric realizes that it's Buddy Garrity. This does not seem good, right? Buddy Garrity? Symbol of white privilege? You see all that flit across Eric's face for a moment before one of the guests exclaims, "Is that Buddy Garrity?!?!" Buddy comes in to cheers all around; the former East Dillon players recall him fondly -- nobody could hit harder than Buddy Garrity! -- and they all clasp hands and greet heartily. Tami codes a comment to her husband, "Hunny, Buddy Garrity is here!" like "can you believe this shit?" and Eric is like, "I surely cannot!"
