Jess is trying to manage her little brothers, who are running shouting around a grocery store. Over in the next aisle, Vince picks one of the kids up and carries him back to Jess, big smile on his face. Jess's jaw drops. Vince tells the kids to run a post route and sends them running for a bag of pretzels he spins down the aisle. Jess scolds him for teaching them to throw food in a grocery, but she's smiling the whole time. Vince's mom comes around the corner and makes Jess and Vince go on edge. She's still looking good and she greets the boys warmly and then declares that she's cooking dinner next week and she wants Jess to be there. Jess protests weakly, she wouldn't want to impose, but Mrs. Howard insists and then walks off with Vince, who looks like he'll take what little his mom can give right about now.
Back in Boston, Tami and Julie stroll a campus with an official woman who remarks to Tami that before Tami was guidance counselor they never got any applications from that district to Boston College. Tami was just happy to put a face to the school name when BC came down to their college fair a few years ago. The woman tries to loop Julie in, who's been lagging behind the older women as they walk and chat. All Julie can say is that the school looks exactly like the brochure. The woman asks if she's sat in on any classes and Julie taciturnly says she sat in on an English class and it was "good." Tami expounds: "Oh, it was great!" and the older women coo and sigh over how great reading is, it's just like being at a fabulous cocktail party! Julie remains silent, and Tami keeps ventriloquizing her -- "Jules loves to read. I think she got that from me."
And now for the scene we've all been waiting for. Tim Riggins. A puppy. A beer can. Tim Riggins fake interviewing a puppy using a beer can as a microphone! I repeat: Tim Riggins fake interviewing a puppy using a beer can as a microphone! He asks Skeeter: "You got a big game coming up this weekend, what do you have to say about it?" Skeeter only whines a bit (apparently not prepped by his PR guy) when there's a knock at the trailer door. Tim sort of lurches over to answer and finds Becky, bitchily saying some crazy lady named Mindy is on the phone for him. Tim takes the call and we cut over to Mindy, amped up and lying in a recliner in a pink bathrobe. The toilet is backed up over at the Riggins Ranch and she can't get hold of Billy. She needs Tim to take care of it; only Tim tells her that he's had too much to drink and can't drive. Mindy reminds him that this isn't about him and his drinking problem, it's about her baby and how it's getting an amniotic noseful of toxic fumes every time she goes to the bathroom. Alright then, Mindy. Tim suggest she just go in the bathtub but Mindy is shocked (as if she has never peed in an inappropriate place before; isn't that, like, one of the initiation rituals for becoming a Landing Strip stripper?). Mindy screams at Tim and hangs up; Tim drunkenly looks at Becky and asks if she can drive stick. Cut to them lurching along the road, Tim trying to teach her from the passenger side how to manage the clutch. I bet she wishes he'd teach her that. They stop at a light, and Becky asks why Tim was in a suit earlier. Tim declares that, well, some guys are meant to be in a suit and some guys aren't.
