Becky works on posters for the dance when Mindy comes in the door, wearing a short skirt, heels, and the baby on her hip. Sweet look. (Seriously). Mindy tosses her bag and baby down and commands Becky to "evaluate me." She turns around, lifts the skirt to reveal little ruffly boy shorts and tells Becky to judge her ass. Becky is understandably confused. Mindy emotionally says that she just went back to The Landing Strip, after losing every ounce of baby weight, and all she got offered is a day shift. Becky doesn't quite get it and so Mindy breaks it down for us: "Do you know what it's like dancing for a bunch of farmers with their mouths full of breakfast buffet? And the worst tippers, the worst!" Oh, man. That sounds not good. Becky tells Mindy that the manager is crazy, because Mindy looks amazing, and then suggests that she go back in and negotiate -- one day shift for one night shift. This idea is soothing and proactive-seeming to Mindy, who seems to buck up a bit. "Yeah, I have regulars!" Becky: "And I bet they totally miss you." The ladies pause a moment to bask in stripper-business-success related bonding until Becky reminds Mindy that her father is coming back tonight. "Can you give me a ride over there tonight?"
Julie. Julie Taylor! Her story line is so sadly misplaced and chopped up. She's hanging out just minding her own business when Head T.A. Derek Bishop shows up and asks her what she's doing tomorrow. She says (lies?) that she has a date. Then he, pinnacle of douchery says, "Good, that's good" like a pat on the head. She asks him what he means by that and he says all he means is "good." He gets up, apologizes for bothering her and leaves. She looks confused.
East Dillon practice field. Vince's dad shouts encouragement to Vince during a break, Vince grabs Hastings to run back out on the field and keep tossing balls, either to keep impressing his father or to get away from his father. Probably a little bit of both. Coach goes over to one of the standards (who IMDB tells me is named Deacon Floyd) in the bleachers and asks about Vince's dad. Deacon tells him that he was in jail for aggravated assault and used to be a drug dealer, "one of the baddest cats in town." Coach sort of grunts at the news, but Deacon reminds him, as the camera films Vince's father walking in slow motion away from the field, that people can change.
