Tim and Lyla, driving home afterward. Lyla tells Tim that he was rude in not responding to any questions anyone asked him. He reminds her that he hates those kinds of people and that kind of food. She snarks, "Yeah, well you ordered raw pigeon." He wants to know who she's trying to turn him into. She snarks that she must be a horrible person, trying to turn him into a person who doesn't order rare pigeon. When Tim does the expected, "Maybe I'm too simple for you, maybe we should go our separate ways" Lyla responds sarcastically, like she doesn't have the energy for it. She says maybe they should go their separate ways and gets out of the truck.
Commercials. Taylor house. Nighttime. Buddy drives up while Tami's in the laundry room in the garage. He jumps right in and tells her that the Jumbotron issue is not put to bed yet, that "they" had a meeting with the Superintendent and the funds are frozen. Tami is like "Who had a meeting?" and it turns out there was a big backdoor power grab by Buddy, the Boosters and the Mayor. There'll be a public hearing in two weeks where everyone can voice their opinion. She just stands there, stunned. As Buddy is leaving, Coach wanders out; Tami just brushes her way by him to go back into the house. Coach's cell phone rings, he answers.
Cut to Coach, knocking on the Williams' door. Smash's mom invites him in and calls Smash down. Coach tells him that they have work to do; in two weeks, he has a walk-on at Texas A&M. Smash plays it cool at first, but the minute Coach turns to leave you can hear the Williams family cheering and laughing. Coach pauses, satisfied.
Tim walks in the door of The Playgirl Ranch to find Tyra sprawled on the couch. She asks him who died (in reference to the blazer) and then informs him that she came by with Mindy to drop something off for Billy and that "soon as they're done humpin' I'll be out of your hair." Oh, "humping." Worst word ever. Tim explains his shitty day to her, saying that he was supposed to chat folks up about college, but that he doesn't think he's cut out for college. Except for right then, he takes his pants off right in front of the refrigerator and reaches in for a beer. Which looks to me like he couldn't be MORE ready for college. He sidles past Tyra and settles into the couch; he's very much in "old friend" mode, but Tyra does give him and his man panty shorts a perhaps loaded sidelong glance. He tells her about eating pigeon and she laughs; he says that he ate it because he didn't want them to think he'd made a mistake. Tyra gives a full-throated laugh just as Lyla comes through the door.
