Lions practice. Buddy hangs next to Coach who asks him if he's seen Mayor Rodell lately. Buddy says no, she's mad at him since the mailbox incident. Coach tells Buddy about how a 12-year-old kid got shot at Carroll Park and he wants to turn the lights on. Buddy is immediately psyched about this idea, "Take back the park, I love that!" Coach quickly says he's not trying to take anything back, he just wants to clean it up a bit. Buddy says he'll talk to the mayor and see if they can raise some money or something; Coach wonders how, since Buddy just said she's mad at him. Buddy: "Well, you know we go back. We have a little history. Before she started playing for the other team? You know what I mean?" Together with Buddy's flashing recently-whitened teeth, that is some imagery I would like to have cleaned up a bit out of my brain.
Julie is laying tile. An extremely douchey "looker" comes over and Dutch-blondes to her that her work is good. She is pleased, "It's Ryan, isn't it?" They make conversation about how hard the work is, until he leisurely crouches down and says that he hates to tell her this but she's tiling the closet when she was supposed to tile the kitchen. And then he points his thumb back over his shoulder and makes a terrible "ccchhk" sound with his mouth. Hate. Julie is semi-embarrassed, she apologizes for not focusing better, there's just so many things going on in her life! He blabs about building and meditation and keeping your brain in the moment and I just want Julie to mount this kid already, since he's clearly the hump (har har) she needs to get over to get over Matt.
Vince knocks on Coach's office door. He sits down and tells Coach that he is in need of cash, and has been trying to find work but there's not a lot of jobs that are cool with him having a record. Can Coach help? Coach wonders if Vince is asking him to look around for him; Vince says, sure, and that also he wonders if he can put Coach's name down as a reference, so when they call he can just say that Vince plays football for him and is doing good and stuff. So sweet. Coach tells him to go ahead and do that, and he'll look around for him. Vince is surprised and delighted -- too heartbreakingly surprised, as if no one has ever done anything for him in his entire life.
