Tami breezes into her office, only to be informed by ASSistant Principal Clint that the phones are ringing off the hook. She takes a few more steps and is greeted by Lady Mayor and Buddy in her office. Lady Mayor lays it on thick at first, saying that Tami is new and excited and that she appreciates it. But then she informs Tami that Tami has made a mistake and she needs to admit it and fix it. Tami, hand on hip, tells the Mayor that she hasn't made a mistake. Buddy is sitting on the couch in the background, head thrown back as he listens to these ladies get into it. Lady Mayor lowers her voice and growls at Tami that the boosters raised the money for a Jumbotron, and it isn't up to Tami how to spend that money. Tami retorts that technically it is up to her and wonders how, given the test scores at this school, she can't believe the mayor hasn't jumped on this bandwagon. As the mayor turns to leave, she tells Tami that she is sorry to hear that Tami feels that way, and that she just hopes things don't turn ugly. I have a feeling Tami is going to wake up in the middle of the night and find a pair of dentures scarily winking at her from her bedside table. Dun dun duuuun!
Buddy is plating up steak and foil wrapped baked potatoes and crowing to his daughter that this is about forty dollars worth of meat on her plate, pan fried in butter, "the way God intended." They sit down and Buddy tells Lyla that the McCoys want to have lunch with them on Saturday. Lyla says that's fine, she'll see if Tim can come. Buddy takes a breath and says that he wants to talk to Lyla about Tim Riggins. Lyla looks right at her father and tells him that Tim is a good guy and he's going to college. Buddy laughs right in her face and declares that Tim Riggins going to college is like him teaching yoga classes: "It's not gonna happened." Lyla tells her father that maybe Tim just needs someone to believe in him; Buddy reminds his daughter that there've been plenty of girls in Dillon who've believed in Tim Riggins. He tells Lyla that Tim comes from white trash, and is going to bring her down. From where? This trashy apartment-complex bachelor pad? Then Buddy goes a bit too far: "Lyla, are you using protection?" She gets up and stomps to her room as Buddy calls, "The last thing we need is to be raising Tim Riggins' baby."
Tami and Coach lay in bed. Tami tells her husband that the encounter in her office that morning was crazy, they were threatening her, like the mafia. Coach grunts. Tami continues, marveling that Buddy just sat by like he didn't have anything to do with the confrontation. Coach grunts. Tami can't believe that everybody is acting like she's done the worst thing in the world. Coach grunts. Tami: "What do you think I should do?" Just then, Gracie raises a cry down the hall, and Coach jumps out of bed to go get her, the way I'm sure he does every night when he isn't being asked a question by his wife, the answer to which is certainly: "Lady, you're CRAZY!"
