Credits. Which I have straight up gone from feeling were just fine-- they did the job-- to absolutely loving. What was wrong with me that whole first season? That clip of Tami doing that slow turn, her arms raised above her head swaying back and forth? Perfection.
We return and we're at the Saracen's. Matt is fixing his grandmother's breakfast and engaged in the interminable discussion of what day it is; what day it is determining, of course, what foodstuffs she will eat. Grandma wants it to be Milquetoast Tuesday, but instead it is Oatmeal Thursday. Matt, in the kitchen, crushes up her blood pressure medication and sprinkles it into the oatmeal. He hands it to her, and she doesn't want it. Matt is in a hurry, and as he's leaving, Grandma wants to know who this "J.D." they're talking about on the TV is. Matt tells her not to worry, that it's just a bye week and they need something to talk about. He leaves, and Grandma promptly leans over and scrapes the oatmeal into the trash can next to her. I don't know if I'm going to be able to handle it if Grandma Saracen dies this season.
Football field. Buddy is over by the scoreboard with some guys, directing them to take some measurements. Tami comes striding out in a pencil skirt and heels. And right there, she's already doing about twenty-five things that Buddy would never be able to do: wearing heels in the grass? She sweetly asks him what he's doing, and when he tells her that he's just taking some preliminary measurements in case his side wins the Jumbotron issue, Tami trills with a smile, "You know you don't have that kind of authority." She whips her sunglasses off and gets serious, telling Buddy that she knows what he's doing, just trying to bully the issue through, but she isn't going to let him, that she is going to make sure that "Superintendent Dunly" hears what she's sayin'. The problem here is that "Superintendent Dunly" is "Paul" to Buddy, who slimily lets it slip that "Paul" really does want to hear Tami's side. "Paul" told Buddy that at the country club this weekend. Tami's face falls. "You played golf with Paul Dunly this weekend?" Buddy is like, sure I did, "I've known him forever."
