Landry gazes at Tyra sleeping in his bed in the early morning light when the alarm clock goes off, the ever-arousing sound of Slammin' Sammy Mead jolting both of them awake. Tyra looks at Landry with a furrowed brow and just mutters "Landry?" Landry responds by saying he's sure whatever she wants to say will certainly be "practical" and that it will ruin what was the most perfect night of his life. Tyra tells him that "this" can't happen again and that she'll see him "in school. I'll see you in school." Then she climbs out his window. Classy. Noting the classiness is Landry's dad, who is around the side of the house taking out the trash. And one hopes that is not supposed to be some sort of pathetic fallacy.

Across town, Tim Riggins gets out of bed wearing nothing but his bare chest and a pair of shorts that certainly have pie weights hung from the bottom they're hanging down so low. Mmmmmmm. I mean, for the pie of course. "Mmmmmm, pie" is what I mean. Tim gets a peek out of his window and sees his brother kissing a be-robed Jackie goodbye after a long night of, uh, pie eating?

The Taylors lay in bed with Baby Grace between them. Eric tells his wife he has to get going, and she says "Well, that sucks."

Eric stops to pick up breakfast for the road. The radio plays, and we hear the local commentators talking about Coach Taylor as "he who shall not be named" and "Judas." A woman hands Coach his to-go order and apologizes for the radio. He just shakes it off and heads out to his car. Where Matt Saracen catches up to him in order to "apologize." Coach wants to know what he's saying sorry for, and Matt explains that it's because he and Julie broke up. Coach tells Matt he didn't know that they broke up -- which just adds insult to injury for Matt; he's not even important enough for the news to have reached parental ears? -- and he stutters, trying to make excuses that Julie probably just doesn't want to bother Coach while he's down in Austin. Eric looks perplexed as Matt walks away.

At practice, New Coke McGregor is giving Tim a hard time again, making him run back and forth in front of the other players while holding a truck tire over his head. He shouts a variety of things at Riggins -- "candy ass" "whiskey breath" "dirty-haired attitude" -- and then tells him to praise the game of football. The rest of the team looks on in complete fear of Coach "Alberto Gonzalez" McGregor until their attention is diverted by Tim Riggins keeling over on the field. The assistant coaches start calling for a trainer but McGregor keeps yelling at Riggins to get up. Cut to the paramedics loading Riggins onto an ambulance.
