Fade to sometime later, apparently after Maggie and her father have left. The Bob calls out from the kitchen that dinner is almost ready. Jack turns to Ron and tells him he'd like to go home. Ron tells Jack that the Bob's feeling will be hurt if Jack leaves, but Jack doesn't care. He thinks his own feelings should come first. Ron reassures Jack that he still cares about Jack's feelings. Jack: "Then why are you doing this to me?" Ron: "I'm not doing anything to you." Jack: "Well then, who are you doing it to?" Excuse me, I thought we had an understanding about not using those words anywhere around Ron Silver? Is that so much to ask? Jack tells Ron about the whole "Fag Baby" thing. Man, he's really going to milk that, isn't he? Let it go, kid. Jack tells Ron that if he can't stop being gay for Jack's sake, then Jack would like to go home. The Bob comes in, hands clasped daintily in front of him, to tell them that dinner is ready. Ron tells the Bob that Jack doesn't feel well, and that Ron's going to take him home. Jack demonstrates his firm moral character by rejecting this polite lie, telling them, "I feel fine. I just don't want to be here, with the two of you." I really wouldn't mind if the Bob gave this kid a little slap right now. Jack leaves the apartment.
Ron and Jack pull up in front of the house. Ron: "You were incredibly rude to [the] Bob tonight. You know better than that." Jack says that Ron has no business expecting everyone else to be so understanding after he turned their world upside down, and stomps into the house. Stockard comes down the steps to ask Ron what happened. He tells her, and then says that he doesn't know what to do. Stockard: "Well, can you blame him?" Ron: "What happened to my great defender?" Stockard: "She quit." And then she walks back into the house.
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.
