Cut to Becky and her mom at the clinic. The doctor is rattling off what he explicitly says is state-mandated information, about probable gestational age and such when Becky's mom interrupts him and says that they get it, she doesn't need to hear about "the procedure blah blah blah. She's not having a baby, she's having an abortion." The doctor quietly says again that this is state-mandated. Becky's mom crazy-eyes about saving everyone some time, nobody needs to hear this. The doctor replies that after he finishes telling her the information she can decide what she wants to do. Meanwhile, the camera has focused on Becky, caught in between all this noise and all these people talking at her, nicely pointing up the absurdity of thinking that either mindless resolve (like her mom's) or "rational" information (like the doctor's) is of any help to her. Cut to Becky and her mom leaving the clinic, her mom more flouncing than walking. She thinks it's unbelievable that some right wing doctor is telling her she has to take another day off work in order for him to tell them they're trash, she thinks it's all so insulting. Becky takes her mom's ranting the wrong way and says "I'm sorry, alright? I'm SORRY." Her mom grabs her and says that "It's alright, it's alright. You are gonna be fine. You are going to do this, and you're going to live your life, and you're not going to think about this. You don't have be sorry, you're going to be fine." Oh, momma. This is a sweet sentiment, but why are you living out your messed up shit through your kid?
Vince finds a woman out at the nurse's desk to ask about the hospital's rehab program. She says that his mom -- whose name is Regina apparently, did we know this yet? -- needs the 30-day in-patient treatment. But the earliest opening the hospital has is January (and it is now, say, October, in FNL world). Vince says they must get cancellations, right? His mom needs help now. She apologizes and says that the state residential centers have a really long waiting list. She gives him a brochure for a private rehab center; Vince exposits, "This looks pretty expensive."
Coach and Big Merri are at a bar. Big Merri wonders if Coach knows what his problem is. Coach doesn't, but thinks that Big Merri is most probably going to tell him. Big Merri informs him that he doesn't know how to coach Vince, he doesn't even know how to talk to him. Coach is the first to play the race card, telling Big Merri that he simply can't be telling him that he can't coach Vince because he's white and Vince is black. Big Merri denies that and tells Coach that he's missing some things; Coach declares this conversation "supremely irritating" and then asks again whether Big Merri is making a racial comment: "Are you saying you can see this because you're black?" Screwing up his face, Big Merri says that he doesn't understand Vince because he's black, he understands him because "he's me." "Do you know what it's like to be the most athletic guy on the field and be told 'don't follow your instincts, follow the playbook'?" Coach's hair takes this information into consideration for some time before he busts out in that boyish way that he has, "What the hell am I supposed to do? Kid's gotta learn the plays!" They spar some more, Coach ordering up two more drinks.
