High school gym. Cheerleaders are warming up as the fans fill the stands. Maggie, the alpha girl, sits in the middle of her tribe. (How is she not a cheerleader?) Stockard and Michael arrive and sit with Mrs. Berka, Max, and Max's little brother. Stockard notices that Ron and the Bob have walked in the door. They're both wearing suits. Everyone waves to Ron and the Bob, who wave back, as Stockard mutters, "He's not going to sit with us, is he?" But she's spared, as Ron and the Bob find seats on the other side of the bleachers. The teams come out and warm up, and then the game starts. Basketball stuff happens. Jack scores the first basket. After several minutes of unrecappable action, everything goes into slow motion as Jack makes a run for the basket. As he goes up for a shot, he runs into another player and goes crashing to the ground. He lies there, clutching his ankle. Ron and the Bob and Stockard and Michael go running down toward him. Jack walks off the court with the help of a couple of coaches, to the applause of the crowd.
Hospital. Jack V.O.: "Life is funny. One minute I was running to the cheers of the crowd and the next I'm being wheeled down the hall in a gurney by my parents and their boyfriends." He's lying in a hospital be with his foot wrapped and elevated, while said parents and boyfriends cluster around him. A nurse comes in and throws out the boyfriends. A doctor enters and announces that Jack has a sprain, and prescribes an aircast and a day of bedrest.
Jack's bedroom. Jack is lying in bed while Stockard gives him some medicine. She wonders if the accident was caused by having all of the parents and boyfriends at the game. Perhaps they distracted Jack? He reassures her that it is not their fault. Michael knocks on the door and tells Jack that he has messages from the coach, Maggie, and Mrs. Berka. Mrs. Berka has volunteered to come stay with Jack the next day while everyone else is at work. Stockard: "Oh, that's so nice. She adores you. She thinks you're very special." Yeah, we'll see just how special Mrs. Berka thinks he is. Jack asks Stockard, "What's it mean when your father picks a boring boyfriend?" That he's Ron Silver, and that's really the best he can do? I think it's pretty miraculous that he has any boyfriend. Jack takes the last of his pills and prepares to sleep.
