Commercials. Tyra and Julie sit on the trunk of a car in the parking lot of Fran's drinking beer out of plastic cups and watching the madness go by -- kids hanging out and "wooo"ing from windows of speeding cars. Tyra jokily "wooos" back at them and Julie snarks, "Welcome back to Dillon!' Tyra laughs and then observes that Dillon is like a drug. When you are outside it, you can see it for what it is, but when you are in it, it seems like there's no other reality. Julie says that it's a hard place to shake and Tyra agrees, "Yeah. Didn't see that one coming." Tyra asks Julie whatever happened with her and Matt and Julie platitudes that they're good. She says that she doesn't really know what they are or aren't. "I just kind of really miss him." Tyra says that life is harder when you really love someone. I mean, c.f. Tami and Eric, right?
Buddy and Eric lean on a fence and look out onto the Panther football field. Buddy tells Coach that he did his best, and Coach lets himself a moment of emotion: "Sons a bitches." A car drives by on the road, honking and shouting and interrupting Coach. Buddy tells Coach that now his job is to "get them." He needs to win the State championship so that next year, the Panthers will want him for Vince. Coach tells Buddy that he could never come back to this school and coach. They did, after all, royally fuck him over, and for no good reason other than Guy Smiley's himself. And this truth just doesn't set right with Taylor.
