Vince is in the Cadillac, getting lectured by the head bad guy car stealer. Calvin pulls them up in front of a house, and Vince has to go in and watch the Head Bad Guy beat someone up with a tire iron over not being able to pay for whatever car parts he's gotten from him. Vince watches, looking vulnerable and young, and when the Head Bad Guy hands him the tire iron, Vince can't do it, opting instead to just kick the guy over a bit. Out at the car, Head Bad Guy yells at him for not participating, and Vince pleadingly asks how much longer he has to do this for, how long until they're even. Head Bad Guy: "Rehab ain't cheap, man."
Coach drives by Panthers field, listening to his radio interview taped earlier that day. On the radio, sounding bitchy and superior, he insists to Buddy that he's only focused on the game right in front of him, not the Panthers game; but his obsessive stalking of the lavish field that used to be his home tells us something different.
Credits. Lions practice. Coach lectures his team to focus on today, on practice, on Friday. He sends them onto the field. Vince passes to Luke, who then takes a big hit to take him down. Luke goes crosseyed with pain through his helmet and struggles slowly to his feet. Tinker comes over to see if he's okay, he swears he is. Coach notices ("You alright?") but doesn't really heed his obvious injury. The kids take five, Luke runs under the bleachers to pop some pills that he's got wrapped in newspaper and tucked into his waistband.
Tim marches into the real estate office and dumps a bunch of cash on creepy Real Estate Lady's desk. She's shocked and jokingly asks if he robbed a bank; Tim deadpans, "You're not gonna tell anyone are ya?" Then breaks into a wide grin. She tells him that she'll submit his offer on his dream Texas Forever land and let him know what they say.
Tami's in a meeting with the weaselly superintendent. He tells her that Luke Cafferty's mother is trying to get her fired. Tami assumes it must be about making Luke transfer to East Dillon, but Paul clarifies that it's because "you instructed a girl carrying, in her words, her grandchild to get an abortion." Tami is flabbergasted and says she had a conversation with a girl but never instructed anyone to do anything. Paul pushes to hear exactly what she told the girl and Tami reminds him that the conversation is confidential, and then explains that the girl sought her out, it wasn't on school property, and Tami followed protocol. Paul says there will be a school board hearing, which flabbergasts Tami even more -- "Well, why?" -- and that this is a hot button issue with a parent who really wants to be heard: "This is turning into a very serious situation, Tami."
