Cut back to Tim Riggins's house, where he's still sprawled on the couch, shirtless. And I just have to say it: the body on this kid. Jeez. I love a story about wasted potential, so I'm particularly looking forward to his storyline. His older brother walks in (also shirtless, rrawwr!) and claps his hands to get his kid brother up. Older Brother looks like he might have his own story of wasted potential, with a bad case of the facial beer puffs in the unforgiving morning light. He lectures his brother that "they'll kick you off the team" as Tim just sort of moans and turns his head into the couch. The coltish Tyra (played by my old friend Adrianne Palicki) walks in, wearing a flannel shirt and not much else, and gets on the couch on top of Tim. Older Brother snaps, "You ain't that good" and Tim snaps back: "Twice the player you ever was." Another story there as well. Older Brother isn't amused, "This is life, this isn't Maxim magazine." I take a moment to pause and consider what sort of Brueghel-esque nightmare world that would be. Tyra looks at him and purses her full lips: "What's that s'posed to mean?" She is perhaps not thinking about Brueghal at this moment.
Cut to an altogether different part of town. A large, but typically misproportioned, brick suburban home. Inside, a tiny blond woman speaks in the high pitch of a suburban lady who lunches, only probably in this town she's more like a lady who boosters. She tells her daughter not to go out with Jason Street tonight, and to be home for a family dinner. The daughter, brown hair pulled into a ponytail, bangs unfashionably curled, sprays canned frosting onto cupcakes (problem #247 in the way life in a town obsessed with football might impact young girls). She reminds her mom that she has "rally rehearsal" that night; her bratty younger brother calls from the breakfast table "Yeah, rehearsing how far she can get her tongue in Jason Street's mouth." Her father -- full-figured in the way of rich men used to steak lunches with clients are -- tells the kid to "nip it." And that's the first nuclear/traditional family we've seen so far.
