Tyra in a waiting room. Her phone rings just as a woman comes out to tell her to come on back. Tyra commits the first mistake, asking if she can take the call first. The woman looks displeased, but says fine. Tyra goes into the hallway to talk with Cash. Cash "baby girls" her this, and "I'll miss you" that, and Tyra meeps out her question, "Are you gonna be faithful to me?" Cash tries to laugh the question off, but Tyra's silence prompts him to be honest. He tells her he'll be gone a long time, and there's going to be a lot of cold, lonely nights. What is this, a Journey song? He says he's going to "try" to be faithful to her, because he loves her. Ooooo, this Cash, he makes me soooo mad! Tyra tears up but just tells him she has to go to her interview. He wishes her good luck. She walks into the woman's cubicle and sits down. The woman asks her to tell her about herself and Tyra starts, warbling voiced, "I'm from Dillon. I'm seventeen. And, I would love to go to college."
Commercials. Tyra walks into Tami's office and asks if she heard from Weston College. Tami is bright and positive, telling Tyra that she thinks the interview went "fine," they won't know anything until after winter break, so Tyra needs to keep on with the application process. Then she puts the nail in the brightly-colored coffin: "This interview process is a learning experience." Tyra can read between the lines, and she sort of sulks out of the office.
Football practice. Wade is running some kind of drill that Matt is included in. Coach stalks over because his sole aim in life is to make Matt's miserable. He asks what Wade is doing, and Wade jabbers something about running some drills he picked up at a USC camp and the boys like it. Coach asks what Matt's doing over there and tells Wade the risks of him getting injured. Wade tells Coach he isn't playing Matt "live" -- he won't let him get hurt. Coach instructs Matt to get his red shirt back on.
Coach walks out of the locker room to find Joe McCoy lying in annoying wait for him. If Coach's hair is sometimes suave, sometimes frustrated, sometimes full of joy, Joe McCoy's hair is like a cloud of gnats, Urkel, and a run in your stocking, i.e., just ANNOYING. McCoy tells Coach that he's glad Coach put their differences aside and hired Wade. Coach looks horrified, and then just nods his head, deciding the cloud of gnats isn't even worth a swat. "Good" he remarks, and then walks off.
