The score is 31-7 Lions with just about 20 seconds to go. Coach sends Vince out for the last play of the game, telling him to take a knee and run the clock out. Vince runs out and catches his father pointing his finger at him from the stands. The team at first takes their Victory formation to take a knee, but Vince changes it up at the last minute. He takes a snap and throws the ball all the way downfield to Hastings who catches it and runs it in for a very unnecessary final touchdown. Coach watches in dismay, the announcer talks about the chip Eric Taylor has on his shoulder, Ornette celebrates in the stands, the scout talks about what a nice throw that was. And as the kids celebrate and Tinker shouts at the Panthers to get off his field, and Crowley shouts over to him that "this isn't who we are, Eric," Coach's hair is at a loss, like he suddenly found himself at a party full of people he despises, a bunch of cokeheads and braggarts.
Commercials. Lions locker room. Major celebrations while Eric full-out YELLS at Vince about his father orchestrating that bad-faith final touchdown and Vince breaking down and yelling back that yeah, so what if he did? His father is looking out for him. Vince joins the chanting celebration while Coach and his hair (which looks like a cartoon character, pointing right and left simultaneously) slam the door to their office behind them.
Outside, Luke signs an autograph for a kid and then sees Becky walking by. "Hey, fours!" he calls, because she is wearing a shirt with his number, "44" on it. She comes over, smiling and gives him a hug which he doesn't really respond to. She finally asks him, "What are you doing?" and he replies that he's going to Buddy's, maybe catch a keg somewhere. But she's like, no, why are you acting weird toward me? He plays dumb and she mimicks him tough-talking at her. She says that she figured it was just testosterone pumping before the game, but... She says that he's usually friendly and call her by her name and that is all it takes to crack Tough Luke Cafferty. His puppy dog ways come right back as he asks, "Wait, you like it when I'm nice to you?" and she's like "YES!" He explains that someone told him that if he liked her, he had to ignore her to get her to like him. "Becky, I hate acting this way toward you. I really like you." She tells him that she really likes him, too and then leans in for a kiss, which he breaks by smiling and laughing, "It totally worked." Which, yeah, it totally did. Chalk one up to the Surprising Wisdom of Billy Riggins.
