Stepping off soapbox now. Tim and Jason are in a cab, Jason rehearsing what he's going to say to What's Her Name when he shows up on her doorstep. "I got a job, and want to live with you, and Noah, if you'll have me... No, no, that's not right" and the like. Tim listens quietly, and then says, seriously, "Jason, I'm pregnant." Jason asks him what the hell he's talking about, and Tim explains that he was just "being your gal," asking Jason what he'll do if she throws him a curve ball like that. The cab takes the exit onto the 1 and 9, heading from NYC to Jersey. Oh, the 1 and 9, how much I have not missed you over the past decade.
Football field, practice. J.D.'s making the passes, his dad and the Boosters stand around on the sidelines. Coach nonchalantly calls Matt onto the field, telling him to step in as receiver. He jumps in and runs down a beautiful pass. Zoom in on Coach, in hair and face lockdown.
Cut to a state-sponsored advertisement for New Jersey. Tim and Jason ride along in the cab through rolling hills and golden arbors and horses. I think they might have done better to just rent a Zipcar for the day. Seriously? A cab? Even to Summit or someplace close in to the city that looks this nice, this ride has to be a couple of hundred dollars. Anyhow, they both look out the window, each realizing that this is where Jason is going to be living from now on. They pull up to the house and Tim remarks on how nice the neighborhood is -- cute little Cape Cods set along a quiet street -- while getting the wheelchair set up for Jason. Tim helps him in -- the camera once again lingering on his motionless and heavy legs, a nice visual reminder of what we've been through with Jason -- and then quietly says, "Hey, J-Six. Ummm." He starts telling Jason that he hopes he gets everything he wants, but sort of chokes up halfway through and has to start again. He tells Jason that no matter what happens, he'll always be his best friend, and that Jason deserves to be happy. Jason looks teary, and tells Tim thank you. He starts to wheel up to the house, but turns around after a moment and reaches his fist out to Tim: "Texas forever?" Tim laughs and fist bumps him, "Texas forever."
