The Taylors dine out, which for some reason I find adorable, particularly the shots of Julie looking utterly superfluous. Ahh, the intersection of public mortification and a free meal. Coach is still conflicted about the locker search, and Tami, as ever, is talking him through it. She asks what he would have done if the cops had wanted to search, say, Landry's locker; Coach doesn't know. Tami's second pointed and insightful question is whether Coach thinks Vince really does have a gun. He certainly doesn't know THAT. "Seems like you oughta just ask him," she says, eyes barely lifting off the menu. That is some vintage Tami. "Seems like you oughta" needs to go on the plaque that will one day adorn some hallway in Dillon, commemorating Tami's awesomeness (hey, don't think Glenn's not already on it). That or "Come on, y'all..." Anyway, Tami says there's no way Vince is going to be able to trust Eric is if Eric trusts Vince.
Smackdown. Julie is a predictable house afire as she, Landry, Jess, and some poor son of a bitch practice in the library. I say Poor SOB because the guy misses the Battle of Stalingrad by a year and is thus subjected to a screechy tirade from Julie about "WRRRRONNNG" and not being able to handle the pressure of...a half-full auditorium populated mostly by teachers? Landry yanks her off to the side and tells her to chill. He knows she's in a lot of pain and all. Julie cuts him off and says it's NOT about Matt. You can tell because of how crazy she gets when he says it is. She just wants to do well at the Smackdown! Climb off her back! What would Landry do if he wasn't getting yelled at? If he was actually able to relax and chill out for a minute. ...Oh, right, when that happens, he kills people.
Coach spots Vince at his recently-violated locker and calls him into the office. This secret word for this week's installment of Coach Chat is "gun." Does Vince have one? Does he own one? In his locker, on the premises, otherwise, whatever. "Gun. You got one?" Coach points out that he's asking Vince "straight-up," which he clearly hopes will earn him some points. Vince goes through a whole lotta thinking in a relatively brief close-up, and says "Nah, I ain't got no gun." Coach looks him back right in the eye and says that's all he wanted to know.
