Jason and Tim head to New York City to get Jason a job with Grant the Sports Agent, and then win What's Her Name back. It's like a Pace Salsa commercial. Grant the Sports Agent receives Jason chillily; apparently their mutual acquaintance, former Panther Wendell, decided to sign with another sports agency and Grant is pissed at the state of Texas and all its inhabitants. Jason hangs his head and seems ready to give up when Tim tells him he needs to go to Wendell and convince him to sign with Grant. Jason does, and it works, and he gets a job with the agency. He goes out to Jersey to find What's Her Name and his son, and they take him back, and Tim tears up, and I am settling firmly on the side of Anti-Change here. Stay in Texas, Jason!
Katie McCoy tips Tami off on a house that's been foreclosed on and is going on the market. Tami loves it and tries to convince Coach to take the plunge. Coach at first says no, then reconsiders, and then says.... no. But the second time, he explains it much more eloquently. Tami realizes she doesn't need any stinking house when she's got this man and his hair in her life.
The Panthers are dealing with some crises just before the playoffs. Mac has a heart attack and needs to be temporarily replaced. The boosters want Wade, J.D.'s private coach, to step in. Coach tries to resist the McCoy vortex, but can't. Meanwhile, Matt is tired twiddling his thumbs on the bench, and asks Coach if he can play receiver. Coach says no at first, explaining that Matt can't get injured, because he has to be the back up for J.D. But Matt persists, proves himself on the field, and then during an extremely sweet impromptu after-dinner try out at the Taylors', and Coach finally relents and lets him try.
Tyra has a college interview, but tanks it because she's worried that Cash is going to cheat on her while on cowboy tour. She sits around in various scenes looking insecure and just not at all Tyra-like, until at the very end, Cash shows up on his way out of town, and Tyra tells him she's coming with him. Just like his own tall, blond chastity belt.
Billy, Tim, Jason, and Herc continue celebrating their sale of the house. Billy can't get out a decent toast-- "To being bad-ass real estate guys who..." -- so they all just settle on Jason's simple and quick "To money!" Herc wonders what everyone is going to do with the money. Billy is going to tell Mindy she doesn't ever have to shake her ass at The Landing Strip ever again. Herc says he's going to either open an orphanage or see how many margaritas he can buy for fourteen grand. Fourteen grand? I'm thinking it's going to be less "retirement" and more "sabbatical" for Mindy. Then it's Jason's turn. He speedtalks his way through his plan to go to New York, get a job with his friend Grant, and be close to Noah. Herc is like "Who's Grant?" Jason says he's a guy he met once. Oh, dear. Tim's gotten serious, and asks Jason if he's really going to just up and move to New York. Jason tells him he's not going to LIVE in New York; no, he'll live in New Jersey with Erin and Noah and commute in to New York. This plan is really making me depressed for some reason. Tim puts his finger on it: "Why would you want to leave Texas?" Jason tells him it's not about Texas anymore, it's about Erin and Noah. Tim, always ready to just go with it, leans back and asks, "Okay. So when we leaving, Six?"
Katie and Tami flutter through an empty house. Tami loves it, Katie knew she would. Katie tells Tami she'd need to move fast because the house is going on the market in three days. Tami says it's like her dream house, and is everything she and Eric have talked about having one day. Katie says she's going to call the realtor and tell her they want to make an offer. Tami tells her to hold on a minute; Katie looks at her intently and reminds her, "Tami, it's a foreclosure." Tami says the house is a good price, but also tells Katie that it would be a stretch for them financially. Katie does not compute this talk about "finances" and tells Tami to look around: "You deserve this."
Tyra and Cash sit in the back of his pick-up truck discussing him having to go on the road. Cash wants Tyra to come with him, but she reminds him that she has school. Just a few days, Cash unhelpfully requests, and Tyra says she has a college interview that week. Cash tells her that the interview is important. Tyra says that they'll talk on the phone every day and he'll be back soon. Right? Cash unconvincingly agrees, "Yeah, I'll be back."
