When we return, men are hitting each other. And city names are flashing past while jazzy music plays. Is this one of those apocalyptic visions I heard about? Then an ESPN2 logo appears, and apparently this is actually Friday Night Fights. Oh. Anchors appear and I have no idea whether they're actual ESPN2 people or not. Nor do I particularly care. They babble about Johnny's prediction for the upcoming "Pain in Maine" fight, although they don't call it that. They should, though. Hey, does anybody else get the feeling this episode has a lot of padding? One of the hosts suddenly quips, "Is this boxing or professional wrestling?" Huh? It looks like a joke, but I don't see the funny part. The point of all this is that Jimmy D.'s evil plan to promote the fight using Johnny has worked well. There's also a clip of Reverend Purdy complaining about, and thereby contributing to, all the publicity.
Johnny is watching the show while working on his laptop. He finds a news clipping about how Tibbs was in jail for assault at some point, and glances back at the television long enough to say, "You tell 'em, Gene." At first I read that as sarcastic, and I couldn't figure out why, and then I realized that it's because most of the things I say to my television are sarcastic. Especially if I'm saying, "You tell 'em." Johnny's multimedia fest is interrupted when the doorbell rings.
Johnny leads Danny through his house, saying he's surprised that Danny would visit him. Danny looks at the house and figures that the psychic business pays well, so Johnny briefly explains that it's his parents' house and he doesn't earn a living from his visions. Danny wants to know why Johnny's trying to ruin his big chance. Johnny says, "I'm not trying to hurt your career; I'm trying to save your life." Danny shouts, "This is my life!" and starts to stomp off. Johnny asks if Danny is starting to think the vision was true. Danny tells Johnny to shut up, but Johnny doesn't, so Danny finally shoves Johnny up against the stairway banister. Johnny's vision swims into focus in the background, while he continues talking to Danny in the foreground. Neat! Johnny describes how they're trying to revive Danny, but it's not working. Danny pulls his arm back for a punch while Johnny growls, "You want to live? Then quit! Walk away!" Danny releases Johnny, and the vision goes away. Danny hasn't changed his mind though; he insists he won't quit, and orders Johnny to stay away. Hey, you came to him, Danny. ["This is why TV is silly, because in real life, Danny would just phone Johnny up and tell him to leave him alone, rather than schlepping all the way there just so he can stomp away." -- Wing Chun]
