Cut over to a dive bar with some live country music. Landry and Tyra sit in a corner, Tyra looking on at her sister and mom both dancing drunkenly with their various paramours. Tyra tells Landry that what they're looking at is her future: "I'm gonna become my sister. And then my momma." Camera cuts over to Ole Sis and Momma, and the prospect is not appealing. Billy drunkenly crashes up onto the stage and takes the microphone, a huge margarita in his hand. He starts slurring into the microphone, addressing Mindy Collette (aka to us as Ole Sis), saying that even though they've only been dating five weeks he sees a future for them, with three or four little Mindy's and Billy's running around, "uh, or maybe less." How sweet! I can see them now: ears pierced, weary miniskirts and wedge heels at four years old. Aw. Billy continues, "So, I humble myself, here at Seven Senoritas Canteena" -- cut over to Landry whose jaw is just hanging over -- "So I ask ya, will ya marry me?" Mindy shrieks yes and there's hugs all around. Tyra looks green, and her mom, shockingly, not quite sharp enough to understand why she looks that way, tries to reassure her daughter not to worry, that there's a man in Dillon for her -- "maybe even here in this room!" Tyra's life continues to flash depressingly before her eyes and she sort of lurches over to sit back down.
A knock at the door, Tami opens it to find Tyra standing there. Tyra jumps right into it, telling Tami that her sister and Billy Riggins just got engaged. Tami naively congratulates her, but Tyra sums it up, telling Tami there's nothing to celebrate, they're just going to have a kid, get divorced, and Mindy will spend her life going after Billy for child support. Tami: "Oh." Tyra then tells Tami that she doesn't want to end up like her sister, that she wants college for herself so badly, that she knows that the Vice Principal thinks she's a moron, and she knows Tami is super busy now, but that: "I need your help." Slight break in verisimilitude here; as if any teenager in the history of the world has ever actually asked for help when she needs it. But, obviously, super sweet, because these two ladies could rule the world if they wanted (especially once Tyra grows her damn hair back out). Tami invites Tyra in, and we get a long shot of the Taylor's front door, Tami dressed in the greatest little boxer shorts and t-shirt evening lounge wear.
