05x13 - Always

The East Dillon Lions are going to State.

I went to prison for Billy.

Why would you do something like that?

I had the opportunity to give something to Stevie we never had.

I gave him his father.

Hey, pop.

What's up with them jackets?

Bringing gifts.

For your pretty little mama.

Whoo!

No, you didn't even make enough money to buy these...

Hey!

[Overlapping arguing]

Pop!

[Screaming]

Hey, don't put your hands on me, boy!

Oh, what's that?

This is just grown man stuff.

Don't even worry about it.

Y'all ungrateful.

Tim moved in, and he was a friend to me and when everything happened with me and you, he was there for me, and I put him on a pedestal for that.

Well, that's really pretty.

You should put that in a little poem.

Go to hell.

Go to hell!

'Cause I miss you, and I miss us, and I feel like I just don't fit in your life anymore.

No.

I've been wanting to do that ever since you showed up.

We're offering you the dean of admissions.

Well, we'd have to move to Philadelphia.

Texas is where I have my job.

There will be one football program, and that will be the Dillon Panthers.

Picture this: you got all the Dillon players with Vince.

You got the facilities.

You got all the money you'll ever need.

You got everything you want.

I have been a coach's wife for 18 years.

Every decision this family has made has been based on your coaching career.

Might we be able to speak with Eric?

Y'all come in.

18 years.

♪ ♪

Right here, gentlemen.

Let's cut through the B.S. here.

How do you feel about the shutdown of the East Dillon program?

That's a stupid question.

What do you think?

It's a conspiracy.

Yeah.

It's a conspiracy?

Vince, Vince, I've seen that Sterling kid play.

He reminds me a little bit of Ced Benson back in the day.

You two paired up in the same backfield is gonna make a hell of a tandem.

He's a Panther.

I know, but I was thinking more along the lines of next year, the formation of the so-called super team, the best of the Lions, best of the Panthers.

I don't even want to talk about that.

I want to talk about how the East Dillon Lions are gonna win State.

Is that a promise?

It's a fact.

What are your plans for next year?

I hear they're taking the cream of the crop for this new super team, so I'm gonna be honest with you.

What are you gonna do?

You are a total jackass.

Tinker, come on.

Careful. Come on, man.

It'd be a mistake if he didn't play.

Do you consider yourselves to be in the running for the next head coach of the super team?

I would think that I'd probably have a good shot.

I'm not meant for the spotlight.

How do you address the future of this team beyond the State Championship?

I'm not looking beyond State.

Knowing him, that's probably all he's really thinking about right now.

Excuse me, coach.

We've all heard a rumor here that you've been offered a hell of a deal.

You got to address that.

We want to know.

I have no comment on that, fellas.

I have no comment.

I don't want to make a comment on that.

Will you confirm or deny...

I'll end it with this: No comment.

Coach?

A five-year contract.

That's not something that comes along every day.

I'm not saying that.

A five-year contract means security.

It means you can have that his and her closet that you wanted so much.

Remember that little house over on Graham Street that you wanted?

Now you can afford something like that.

I appreciate that, but you know what? I bet they'd set us up pretty nicely in Philadelphia too, college style.

Five years is something that you have to pay attention to.

But don't forget that the people offering you this contract are also the people who fired you for no reason two years ago.

They are not the same people.

That's the McCoys.

The McCoys aren't there.

That's an entire different situation.

You're wrong.

This is not a whole different situation.

It's a completely different situation.

Who has changed in this town?

Listen.

You always said that you could coach football anywhere.

I don't see why Philadelphia's any different.

Because here is where we put our tree, not Philadelphia.

Let's... Jules, I'd love to hear what you...

That's a Texas tree.

Don't raise your voice.

We're decorating the tree.

I'm not raising my voice.

This is a family...

I'm very happy.

[Doorbell rings] It's jolly.

Someone's at the door.

Hang on!

There's someone at the door.

Are you serious right now?

[Knock on door]

Well, I can hear it.

Can you hear it?

Would you like me to...

I'll get the door.

I'll get it!

No, I'll help you.

I've got it!

No, I don't want you to strain yourself.

Hey, Matt.

How are you?

I'm well. Thank you.

Oh, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.

It's Matt Saracen, honey.

I see who it is, sweetheart.

Happy, Happy Christmas.

Is Juli... is... is Ju...

She sure is. Julie.

She's here.

She here?

Yeah, she's here.

What?

Come on in, sweetie.

We're, um, we're decorating the tree.

Hi.

Hey.

Hi.

Come on in.

Join us.

We're having a fun family time.

Oh, thank you.

Yeah, it's been great.

Wish you would have at least told me you were coming home for Christmas.

I mean, the surprise was nice, but at least we could have planned something or gone somewhere.

Hey, Julie.

Um...

Look, ever since you came to Chicago, um...

I've been... I've been thinking about you all the time.

And us.

And it's just that was perfect.

And...

I know how much I love you and I know that I want to be with you for... forever.

So...

This is... this is grandma's.

Julie Taylor...

Will you marry me?

[Sniffs] Yes.

Yeah?

Really?

I love you.

I love you so much.

♪ ♪

It's beautiful.

[Chuckles]

Oh, my God.

[Chuckles]

Oh, my God.

My dad must have flipped.

What do you mean?

When you asked him to marry me.

You're kidding, right?

No, you asked him, right?

No.

I thought that was just, like, an old wives' tale.

Oh, okay, okay.

Um, why don't...

Why don't we just pretend that you never asked me, and I never said yes, and you can ask him?

Why don't we just go there together and tell him, "Hey, we're getting married"?

You need to do it man-to-man.

O-okay.

Man-to-man.

Could you please not throw my tools around?

Thought you said you were gonna take care of my truck, Billy, while I was gone.

Well, I did take care of it.

If you didn't drive around like an idiot all the time, maybe it'd be running fine still.

I hate your tools.

I don't even know why you care about this truck.

You're not even gonna be here.

You're going to Alaska, I thought.

I may or may not be going to Alaska.

Is it 'cause you raw-dogged Tyra the other night?

I heard.

[Baby crying] Hey, Buddy.

Don't sleep with my sister.

That's, like, incest now.

It's not incest.

It's not incest.

No, there's no bloodline, so.

There's no bloodline.

Yeah.

It's really, really creepy.

Well, maybe, but it's not incest.

Hey, what do you think about me taking Stevie for a bit?

For the day?

Really?

Yeah.

I got him.

Some bonding time.

I'm fine with that.

There's no going back.

All right.

I'm getting a bag.

Well, you're working on the fuel line.

It's not the fuel line.

It's got to be the acceleration pump.

This is our high-dollar tree.

30, 25, and then right here we got 15 and then over here we have...

We have...

Hey, baby.

Excuse me.

Oh.

Oh.

Oh! What you...

What you got for me?

Brought you some food to eat.

Wait, aren't you supposed to be at practice throwing a ball or something?

You got to eat, right?

Yeah, I got to eat.

Oh, I got to tell you I'm riding with Moody's parents to the game.

Going to State.

How about that?

That's what I'm talking about.

That's what I'm talking about.

I'm so proud.

Oh!

Have you heard from dad?

You know...

You don't want him there.

Mom, it's State.

Once in a lifetime.

Yeah, I know it's once in a lifetime, but this is your moment, all right?

And I don't want him taking that away from you.

All right, get out of here.

Go throw some passes.

Do what you do.

I'm trying to win State.

Okay, ma.

Number five.

And so for those reasons, sir, among many others, I'm asking for your...

Your daughter's hand in marriage, sir.

[Laughs]

What?

Thank you.

Thank you so much.

No, I think it's really good.

Really? Really?

No.

Landry, this is serious, okay?

You're not helping.

Do you have any suggestions?

Any constructive criticism, maybe?

Should I talk about Chicago more, you know, and how I got promotions at the art gallery and I'm doing...

Whatever you do, do not mention the fact that you work at an art gallery.

That's not gonna be assuring for a football coach.

That's true.

I think you need to walk in there, you need to plant your feet, and you need to be assertive.

And you say, "Coach Taylor, I'm gonna marry your daughter."

Coach Taylor, I'm gonna marry your daughter.

"I love her."

You can fill in the blanks with all that.

Right, right.

"She's the light of my life."

Whatever.

Exactly.

That's what I was trying to do.

Or you go in, you plant your feet, and you just start crying, and you just say...

Great, you want me to just cry to coach?

That's really helpful.

That's really, really helpful.

I'm just saying you can't just be wishy-washy like you're doing right now.

Landry, this whole thing is crazy, okay?

So if you could give me some real help.

The crazy part is that just a few years ago, we were trying to figure out how we were gonna talk to Julie Taylor.

And now here you are.

You're about to marry Julie.

I know.

See what I'm saying?

So this is just one little, you know...

This is one little roadblock.

That's just... I think you're overthinking it.

I mean, it's just coach, right?

Yeah.

I know... Coach and I, we go way back.

Yeah, he's always loved you.

Yeah.

All right, look, we cut everything in half today, all right?

We're going quick.

We're going hard.

I say we go win a championship.

Let's go win our championship.

All right.

We gonna have a bar in the hotel?

Coach, um, yes or no, am I going with you or not?

Going where?

To the Panthers, the super team?

Who said anything about that?

Coach, everyone's talking about that.

Now that's just rumors.

I wouldn't be listening to rumors.

Well, if the rumors happen to be true, will you consider it?

I'll tell you what.

I hear what you're saying, but you couldn't be picking a worse time to be bringing that up.

It's already under consideration.

Let's go! Move it out! Let's go!

Huddle up!

Boosters.

They could be your worst enemy, yet your best friend.

Even more importantly, right there.

See that?

Yeah.

Never turn away [indistinct].

No water!

Yeah, that's your old man yelling.

Special teams doesn't get water!

Line it up on the 40 right now!

Hey, what's wrong with you?

Punt team, let's go!

It's gonna be my last game, Vince.

I'm done.

I'm not going to the super team.

Who told you that?

Somebody tell you that?

What they gonna say?

"Come on"?

I got some pull over there at the Panthers, all right?

I'ma talk to coach.

I got you.

All right.

Keep your head up.

Keep working hard.

We got State to look forward to, you hear me?

All right, let's stop lollygagging!

Let's do something out here! Come on!

Run, yeah! Move your asses! Come on now!

What we got here?

Hey, coach.

How are you?

Good.

Hey, there.

This is Stevie.

Stevie, coach.

Coach, Stevie.

Billy's young'un.

How are you, son?

Coach Eric Taylor.

Nice to meet you.

A screamer like your brother.

Huddle up! Let's go!

Nah, he's a good guy.

Hey, let me ask you something.

You doing all right working over at Buddy's there?

It's a job right now.

If there's anything that you need, you damn well know to call me, yeah?

Yes, sir.

Thank you.

[Sighs]

You getting yourself another ring this year, huh?

Got a damn good chance.

[Whistle blows]

[Indistinct chatter]

Oh, don't make me do it.

What are you doing?

It's Tim's laundry.

Eww! It's Riggins' underwear!

Don't touch me with it.

Don't touch me with it.

You know what? This is Tyra's job now.

She should be the one doing this.

Shut it.

What, everyone else can talk about it but me?

Nobody talks about it, and it is gross and weird anyway, and you have Luke, and that is all that matters.

Well, they can have my room when I'm gone.

Where are you going?

My mom called...

And she's coming back into town this week, so I'm gonna be staying with her.

I figure it's kind of a good thing, 'cause it's getting really crowded around here and...

No, that's awesome.

Your mom...

Your mom's coming home.

Yeah.

So when is that happening?

Thursday.

Thursday?

Yeah.

Or Saturday or Sunday.

I don't know.

I'll find out tomorrow.

Thursday sounds really great.

Hey, if you need help packing your stuff up, that is exactly what Billy is here for.

Okay.

[Door closes]

Sir, I've known your daughter for a very long time now.

Ahem.

And... ahem.

I know... you've known me for a long time too, since I was young.

Mm-hmm.

But not that I'm old.

I'm not old now, but I'm...

I'm very mature for my age.

I'd like your permission to marry your daughter, sir.

[Laughs]

You... you what?

You what?

Say it again.

I would like to marry Julie.

I love her completely, and I'm gonna take care of her for the rest of her life, so I just would really like...

I'd like your blessing to ask her to marry me...Sir.

Matt, how old are you?

19.

You're only 19 years old.

Yes, sir.

Matt, how old's my daughter?

18.

She's 18.

Yes, sir.

I've got a job up in Chicago at a...

Well, I've already gotten two promotions.

The answer to your question is no.

And the answer to your question is gonna be no today, it's gonna be no tomorrow, and it'll probably be no until the sun burns out.

Is that clear?

Well, the thing is, sir, we don't actually need your permission.

You damn well do need my permission.

No, we actually don't, and I already asked her.

She already said yes, so, you know, this is really just a courtesy.

We're just hoping for your blessing.

Let me do you the courtesy of telling you that my daughter's answer to you is no.

[Door closes] Damn it!

Hey, honey.

You know, I wanted to talk to you about what you said about us not being East coast people.

I mean, you know how much I love Texas.

I love it here so much, but we will never know if we're not East coast people...

We've got a really big problem.

We can always come back.

We have got a much bigger problem than what you're talking about.

What?

Matt Saracen asked your daughter to marry him.

Julie?

What are you talking about?

No, Gracie.

Yes, Julie.

He came into my office today, and he asked for Julie's hand in marriage.

He asked me for her hand in marriage.

At least he had the decency to come talk to you about it.

No, he didn't have any decency to come talk to me, 'cause he already talked to her.

And you know what your daughter said?

Your daughter said yes.

No.

Oh, yes.

No.

Yes.

No.

Yes, yes.

No.

They're too young.

That's what I said!

Honey, what'd you tell him?

I said, "Oh, great.

Let's break out some champagne.

This is gonna be fantastic."

I don't know why you're yelling at me!

I think we agree on this!

[Knock on door]

Hey.

Hey.

[Sighs]

So your dad told me the news.

Did Matt talk to dad?

Mm-hmm.

Did dad flip?

Mm-hmm.

[Chuckles]

Honey.

Did you see the ring?

It was his grandma's.

That's beautiful, hon.

It's just y'all are so young.

I know that it seems like that, but...

I love him more than anything, mom.

Well, your dad and I would love to take you and Matt to dinner.

As like a... like a celebration dinner?

More like a conversation dinner.

Okay.

[Sighs]

[Door opens]

[Gasps] What's that?

Who was that?

Oh!

Look at who's here.

Hey.

Hi, my boy.

Hi, there, sweetheart.

Thank you for my little Christmas present.

Hello.

Thank you. Tyra!

Tyra, come on out here.

Mama?

Come on out here.

[Gasps]

No.

Hi.

Hi, Tim.

Hey, baby.

Yeah, we were in the neighborhood, so just decided to stop by.

Good, I'm so glad.

You want a beer, honey?

Sit down.

Sure, thank you.

Thank you.

What are you doing tomorrow night?

Um, I actually am supposed to go to Buddy's with, um, Matt and Julie.

Seven's in town?

Yeah.

Yeah, he and Julie got engaged.

Are you serious?

Yep.

Oh, somebody has a poopy diaper.

Honey?

I got it, mama.

Will you come take him?

Mm-hmm.

Yeah, my days of changing diapers are over here.

Here.

Come here, little man.

Yeah.

Come here, beautiful boy.

But bring him back.

So, uh... so I guess I'll see you there tomorrow night then?

Yeah, of course.

So the kid is doing a three-step drop.

I said, "No, no, no, no.

You got an arm, right?

You got to use that arm."

Now he let out a bullet right in the numbers, boy.

Yo, pop.

Crowd went crazy.

Can I talk to you for a second?

What you doing on this side of town, boy, hmm?

I heard you all West Side now, huh?

[Chuckles]

Super team, right?

You don't got to come out here checking up on me, boy.

How your mama doing?

She all right.

Tell her I said, "Hey.

I'm sorry."

Yes, sir.

What you want, man?

You just gonna stand here?

We got State on Friday.

Yeah, I know you got State on Friday.

You know? I live here.

I heard all about it.

I got you a ticket.

I want you to be there.

I got things to do on that day, man, you know?

A lot of things.

I'll be watching.

Thank you.

See you soon.

Hey, Tim Riggins.

Sproles.

How's it going?

Hi.

Hi.

I am gonna miss this little guy.

What do you mean "miss"?

Where you going?

Home.

Home?

Yeah, my mom's coming back, so...

I don't know.

It's probably for the best.

I think I wore my welcome out with Mindy.

I doubt that.

She's probably gonna miss you more than you know.

Yeah?

Yeah.

What about you?

I hear you're moving to Alaska.

What do you think?

We don't know yet.

[Laughs]

I don't know.

So, um, I did the whole high school thing.

Right.

And you were right.

And I'm really glad that I made these memories.

Me too.

And, uh, I'm finally over my crush.

Okay.

So friends?

Let's say family.

I'll see you, Becks.

See you.

[Cheers and applause]

Listen up, ladies.

Ladies.

Coach Traub here has your tickets to the State Championship game this week.

[Cheers and applause]

There's two tickets for everybody.

It's for your family, for your friends, whoever you want to bring, so when I call your name, get your ass up here. Tinker.

Tinker!

Rodriguez.

Rodriguez!

Olsen.

Olsen!

Moody.

Moody!

Can I get two more?

Martinez.

No, you can't get two more.

Go sit down.

Rocco.

Rocco!

Garrity.

Garrity!

Howard.

Howard!

Garcia.

Garcia!

Two tears in a bucket.

Luck it.

I only need one, coach.

What?

I only need one.

All right.

Ellis.

Ellis!

Eaton.

Eaton!

Cafferty!

Cafferty!

Foster!

Foster!

Davis!

Davis!

Hernandez!

Hernandez!

We just don't want you to rush into anything, 'cause you don't need to.

Right, and we're not rushing into anything.

It's not like we're getting married tomorrow, and you guys were our age when you got married.

Well, that was a different time.

Well, and we were a little bit older.

You were still in college.

That was a different time.

It's just I love your daughter.

I love Julie, and I want to marry her.

That's it.

Maybe you don't understand exactly what I'm saying, Matt.

Marriage requires...

Maturity.

Marriage requires two people who for the rest of their lives are willing to listen, to really listen to each other.

And that marriage requires the greatest of all things, which is compromise.

We're willing to make it work.

Huh.

Look at you guys.

You guys were married when you were our age.

How many different jobs have you had?

How many times have you moved and how many difficult things have you gone through?

And you guys have made it work...

So well.

You guys are my inspiration.

Would y'all excuse me for just a quick second?

It's my turn, babe.

[Sniffs]

I have loved you, and you have loved me, and we have compromised...

Both of us...

For your job.

And now it's time we...

Talk about doing that for my job.

Because, otherwise, what am I gonna tell our daughter?

You just can't...

Let's just go back inside.

[Sighs]

How do you propose that we're gonna make a decision if you're not gonna talk to me?

I believe I have talked to you...

And I've decided I'm gonna say no to Braemore.

I'm never gonna win this fight.

All right.

You guys still awake?

Hey, sweetie.

Hey.

How are you?

I'm good.

I know you guys think that I'm young and that I'm making the wrong decision and that I'm gonna drop out of college or whatever, but that's not me, and you guys should know that.

It's about getting to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.

I want you to be on my side, and I want you to trust me that I'm making the right decision.

We do trust you.

And we want you to be happy.

You know, Billy, I really...

I want you to know that I really do appreciate you.

Don't worry about it.

Really.

Don't worry about it.

I'll get it.

Mindy.

I feel like you think that I'm just gonna leave...

And forget everything that you guys did for me.

But that's not happening, 'cause I love Stevie, and I'm gonna love the twins just as much.

I'm gonna be over at y'all's house all the time whether you like it or not.

We're family.

[Sniffs]

You're my sister.

Becky!

Ahh!

Becky girl!

Oh, it's so good to see you.

Did you have fun?

I had fun, but I missed you so much.

You look really pretty.

I do?

Yeah.

You look beautiful.

Oh, baby.

[Overlapping chatter]

Hey, okay, really?

At y'all make this mess for?

We're going to Dallas.

Yeah, we're going to Dallas.

What are y'all talking about?

Your daddy called.

You know the franchise he started in Dallas?

Well, that thing took off, so he started another ray's down there, and he's moving you all to live with him.

What?

Here you go.

[Overlapping chatter]

You ain't gonna make that.

Mm-mm. Mm-mm.

Mm-mm.

Too much green, huh?

Too much green.

Young man gets a chance at that maybe once in a lifetime.

No, I don't want to hear it.

I'm sorry.

Well, it's the truth.

[Laughs]

What is he doing here?

Who's that?

That's Luke.

He's a little hottie.

Mom.

Well, he is.

Well, he is.

Be cool.

I'm cool.

[Chuckles]

What are you doing here?

What's all this?

Good evening.

How you doing?

I miss you.

I'm crazy about you.

I'm...

I was stupid.

I'm really sorry.

Uh, hi.

I'm Cheryl.

I'm Luke.

Very nice to meet you.

It's nice to meet you too.

Welcome back.

Thank you very much.

He's a sweetheart.

As long as he learns how to wear a condom.

I'm serious.

Yes, ma'am.

I'll kill you.

Yes, ma'am.

Nice to meet you.

Very nice to meet you, ma'am.

[Door opens and closes]

Hey.

I love you.

I'm so sorry.

It's okay.

I want to be with you.

You are with me.

I want to be with you forever and ever and ever.

[Overlapping chatter]

All right.

[Laughter]

All right.

To Mr. and Mrs. Saracen.

Cheers, guys.

Congratulations.

I always thought you'd be the first person to say that.

[Laughter]

So where'd you do it?

Um...

The Alamo.

Freeze.

[Snickers]

You serious?

Wow. That's amazing, actually.

Well, it was amazing.

It's sentimental is what it is.

Of course.

Whatever.

This is crazy.

Look at us.

Y'all are engaged.

I'm halfway through college.

Kicking ass, by the way.

And I'm out on good behavior.

Hear, hear to that.

Sweetness.

Cheers on that.

Here's to that.

Let's dance.

Let's do it.

Come on.

[Indistinct].

[Sighs] What do you say?

This feels right.

You're just lonely, Tim.

No, I'm not.

I can't do this again with you.

I got plans.

I don't.

[Cell phone rings]

What?

Hmm. Stop that.

Honey.

Stop it.

Can you turn that off?

Mm-mm.

[Sighs]

[Groans]

What?

Morning.

Hey, Buddy Junior's staying... with me el permanente.

What the hell are you doing?

Yeah, his cast comes off in four weeks.

He's rehabbing, he's getting ready for summer ball, and then he'll be ready to be on the super team.

Yeah, that's great.

Why you calling this early waking my whole damn family up?

I mean, I just needed to talk to you before you left for State.

Can you believe it, Eric?

State Championship?

Yeah, I know.

Listen.

Anyway, they wanted me to get you to sign before you left for the game.

Sign what?

The contract with West Dillon with the Panthers.

So I thought maybe I could just stop by the field house and you could look over the contract and sign it and then that'll just clear your mind.

You can just focus on the State game.

You don't have to think about anything.

That sound like a plan?

Hey, you know what? Do me a favor.

Don't ever call me at this time in the morning again.

I don't care what you've got to talk about.

You hear me?

Okay.

Sorry I called so early.

Bye.

Who is that?

Who do you think?

I don't know.

Buddy.

That's who it is.

They want me to sign the contract...

Before I go up to State.

Today?

I'm taking Gracie Bell to see Santa Claus today.

Mm-hmm?

Coach?

My dad's starting another business in Dallas, so after the semester, I'm gonna be living in Dallas.

I won't be a part of your super team after all.

You'll be missed.

I mean that sincerely.

You will be missed.

Coach...

I can't tell you how much this season's meant to me.

Being a part of the Lions has been the greatest experience of my life.

I think it's been mine too.

I happen to know the, uh, coach down at Dallas Walker if you have any, uh... any interest in, uh... me giving him a call and putting a word in for you.

Thanks, coach.

Consider it done.

Appreciate you.

Thanks.

It's for the tree.

I'm not the tree.

Come here.

I found it.

I knew I would.

It was in that back bedroom under all that junk.

Oh!

Julie, you've got to see this, honey.

Oh, I'd forgotten how pretty it is.

Huh?

Ha-ha!

It is.

I can't believe it's this white.

Look at it.

Oh, man.

You know, I think Julie might actually want to get her own dress, grandma.

Oh, nonsense.

This might need a little washing...

Nonsense?

But I can do it...

I think I can do it in the kitchen sink.

Oh, I'm so glad I found it for you, honey.

Could I... could I look at the ring on you?

Yeah.

You like it?

It's beautiful, Mrs. Saracen.

Honey...

You got to call me grandma now, you know?

We're family.

I love you.

I love you too.

Now I have got to look for some shoes and a veil.

I don't know.

I don't think...

My feet have always been extra small.

Well, you just find 'em and then we'll check it out, okay?

Yeah, we'll have to see.

Hey.

What's the matter?

Do you think we're making the right decision?

I mean, we're still really young and everything my mom and dad said and we don't even live in the same state, Matt.

Julie, it doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter if we live in the same state.

Doesn't matter how old we are.

We know we love each other.

And we know we're perfect together.

You really believe that?

Yeah.

It's gonna be perfect.

Ahh! Look!

Lookie here!

Oh, wow.

What do you think?

It's extremely too tight.

It's too tight.

[Indistinct chatter]

Miss Merriweather, can I talk to you for a second?

Yeah, what's up?

Come here.

What?

You smiling for?

At first, I hated you on this team.

Look how far we've come.

We're getting ready to go to State.

I feel like one of the luckiest men in the world who gets a chance to...

Who gets a chance to share it with his girlfriend.

I love you.

I'm so glad that you're a part of this team.

I'm not sure what I want to do yet.

But don't laugh.

I'm thinking politics.

Are you laughing right now?

Nope.

Inside?

No.

Yes.

Yes, Tim Riggins, you are laughing.

No, I'm not.

I'm not laughing inside.

You are lying to me right now.

Okay, when you say, like, politics, do you mean like Sarah Palin kind of stuff or...

No, you ass.

Out of all people, really?

No, I'm thinking more along the lines of, um, Mrs. T., you know, except bigger.

I can see that.

[Sighs]

Tim...

I've been in love with you since I was five years old.

And being here with you...

It's the greatest feeling I've had in a really long time.

Me too.

It scares the hell out of me.

I have dreams, Tim.

I know you do.

I have dreams too.

I'm gonna build a house exactly where we're sitting.

I will get a job.

And I will never do anything illegal for the rest of my life.

Guaranteed.

Maybe one day, our dreams can merge together.

Say hi to Santa.

Hi, Santa.

This is Gracie Bell.

There you go, honey.

Merry Christmas to you, sweetie.

Smile, honey.

Aww, smile, Gracie Bell.

Tell Santa what you want for Christmas.

Oh, your daddy's gonna love that.

Smile, Gracie.

Oh, my lord!

Oh, my lord.

Hey, how you doing, kiddo?

Come on, get her picture now.

Hey, Santa Claus.

My hands are shaking now.

Come on, smile.

Smile. There you go.

All right, smile.

All right.

That a girl.

Okay, we got 'em.

Thank you, Santa Claus.

All right.

Talk to you real quick?

You scared me half to death.

Is everything okay?

Yeah.

You're supposed to be on your way to State.

What's going on?

I turned the contract down.

It's your turn.

I want to go to Philadelphia.

Really, babe?

Will you take me to Philadelphia with you, please?
