Tim Riggins is in traffic court, asking if he can just pay the fine and get on with life. The judge says he's been dragged in not for the ticket but for failing to appear in court the first time. He says he'll let Tim keep his license only with the consent of his parents. Tim turns around to the chairs behind him to see Billy macking on some random lady and asks the judge if his brother could sign. The judge asks if Billy's his legal guardian, and Tim has to yell Billy's name to get him to look away from his traffic court hook-up. Billy stands and says that he is not Tim's legal guardian, and the judge insists that he needs a parent's or legal guardian's signature. Tim says he'll just get his dad to sign it, and Billy winces in disbelief.
Tyra and Julie are at the Pharmacy, Gift, and Grill. (Truthfully, they're probably at Kohl's, but you can't really tell, and the shop does have that mid-century Woolworth's feel, so I'm going with the PG&G). Julie tells Tyra that last night was the first night she'd ever set foot in a strip club. Tyra snarks, "You don't say?" Julie wonders if Ole Sis ever gets freaked out by all the creepy guys in there. Tyra says she can take care of herself, and then gets a mischievous look on her face as she leans in: "Guess who her biggest customer is?" Pause. "Buddy Garrity!" They erupt in laughter and Julie's truly disgusted "GROSS!" is perfectly delivered. The camera catches Julie looking kind of longingly at Tyra; longing for her experience, her attitude, her toughness. Tyra looks down at Julie and tells her the lipstick color she's tried on looks good on her. Julie says she doesn't have the money to buy it, so Tyra looks to her left, then to her right, and nonchalantly slips the tube into her purse and heads out the door. Julie looks stunned, hops off the chair by the make-up counter and scurries after Tyra. Once outside we overhear Julie urgent whispering "What are you doing?!"
At the Playgirl Ranch, Tim rushes around packing a bag up while Billy tells his little brother to just let him forge the traffic court signature. Tim says he doesn't want to risk his license, but Billy knows what's up: "What is this, some sort of work things out with Dad thing?" Tim pays no mind to his brother, who tries one last ditch effort to keep his brother from going down the lonely deadbeat daddy road. He grabs a postcard from the fridge and reminds Tim that they haven't seen their father for two years and don't know if he even lives "there" anymore. Tim yoinks the card from Billy, stuffs it in his bag, and tells him everything will be all right. Realizing his little brother is on his way, Billy stands between him and the front door and tells him to not trust anything their father says "cuz he is a liar. And do not get drunk with him, cuz he's a mean son of a bitch when he's drunk." Tim looks at his brother intently and tells him he's only getting a signature. Billy moves aside to let him through, all the while clucking like a mother hen. He hands Tim a wad of cash and tells him, "under no circumstances" should he give that money "to him."
