Commercials. Jason, Tim, and Wendell in Grant's waiting room. This time, Jason's not in a suit. Grant comes out, all surprised, and Wendell tells him that Jason brought him in. Grant smiles and jokes with Wendell a bit, asking him to come back to talk. He pauses and then turns to Jason and says that he needs him back there, too. Jason and Tim exchange glances, and Jason wheels after Grant, Tim realizing that it's now a done deal.
Taylor's, dinner. Matt is over, and compliments Tami's chicken. Tami snarks that it's nice to be complimented over a dinner one's slaved over. Coach snarks back that he told her before it was a really nice meal. Julie realizes that no time is like the present when it comes to annoying your already-annoyed parents, and asks her father why he won't let Matt play receiver. Coach declares they don't talk football at dinner; Matt tries to get Julie to stop, but she's on a roll, brushing aside her father's disingenuous claim -- "We talk football at breakfast, lunch, and dinner" -- and then says all they are doing is being a family, talking about work. Coach's hair looks like "What hath I wrought in this girl?" Julie could give Jason Street a run for his sports agent money, telling her father that Matt deserves the chance, he's done so much for the Panthers, it's his senior year, he knows all the routes, and thinks like a QB. Tami, at the other end of the table, just shrugs at her husband. Coach tries to change the subject to the house they can't afford, but Matt senses that this man has so much on his plate right now, he's the family-man equivalent to an injured gazelle: "I do know the routes better than anyone." Matt says that he'll prove it; they should go outside and Coach can call ten routes, he'll make them all, and if he doesn't they never have to talk about it again. Coach decides to put an end to it -- he either needs to escape the death grip of these teens, or rise up against them -- and says okay, if Matt misses one, they never talk about it again, if he doesn't, Coach will think about it. "That's it." They head outside.
