- Upstairs on the dresser.
- Thank you, - and you look beautiful.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
Well, somebody's excited about their first day of school as interim principal.
And you should be excited for your first day of class at G.
- Hey, good morning.
- My little babies are growing up - Mmm.
- And my bonus baby is about to take the music industry by storm.
Well, if "by storm," you mean, um, fighting over contracts all day, then yay me.
- OK.
I'll see you later.
- Bye.
- Good luck.
- Thank you.
- Hey.
Morning, y'all.
- Good morning, Patien Uh, is that my jacket? No, no, no.
I borrowed it from Liv.
- Ah.
- Oh.
That's where that jacket's from.
My bad, Mrs.
It's OK.
It looks cute on you.
You can keep it.
- Thank you, and I know, right? - Have you talked to Coop? Uh, yeah, we talked briefly last night.
Um, taking a little bit of space, but she's enjoying her time on the road with her dad.
It's their first real chance for some quality time together since Coop recovered from the shooting.
Um, OK, well, I got to get to campus.
- I will see you guys later.
Thank you.

OK, I need to get going, too.
Um, you should definitely do something with your hair.
- Yeah.
Love you.

- Have a good day.
- Bye, Dad.
I really love these girls, but we gotta, like, draw straws or rock, paper, scissor to decide who's kicking who out.
It's temporary.
We just need to be a little bit more patient.
Where are my Sergeant Sugar Flakes? Oh, yeah, those? - The girls threw it out.
- Huh? They said we only needed healthy cereal in the house.
Oh, hell no.
They gotta go.
Morning, bros.
M mornin'.
What are you doing up so early? Oh, I'm taking Asher to meet Coach Mr.
Montes about a job.
You really gonna keep calling him that? What else am I supposed to call him? Coach Montes is always gonna be "Coach Montes," so her husband is "Coach Mr.
" Makes perfect sense.
- Well - OK.
I'm leaving that alone.
Gotta do my morning meditation - and sun salutations before breakfast.
- Mmm, right.
I decided I'm gonna be a wellness influencer, teach my followers about being Zen.
Instead of a mentorship, I'm providing - a zentorship.
Ha ha ha! - "Zentorship.
" - Dope, right? - Mm-hmm.
It's something.
- Oh, boy.
- Fellas! - It's me! - Hey, what up, what up? - What's happening? - Good morning, good morning.
You do know that South Crenshaw High is the other way, right? I do, I do.
I just stopped by for a quick breath of fresh testosterone.
- Wow.
What is he doing? - Nope, nope.
- Don't ask.
Don't ask.
- OK.
All right.
Can I get some cereal? Thank you.
You're a little overdressed for your meeting with Preach, right? Oh, this is, uh, this is my principal look 'cause I'm a principal, speaking of which, Preach You really think he's the right choice to help tutor the football team? I know I said I was desperate, but Coop would have never passed that G.
without Preach.
Trust me.
He's your guy.
Now I gotta go 'cause it's gonna be a long-ass day and I'm already late for calculus class.
- All right.
- All right.
- Holla at you.
- All right.
Good luck.
Hold up.
Is it is this my cereal that you took from the house? Welcome to advanced molecular biology.
All right, as promised today, we will be discussing the - This isn't calculus? - Experiments.
All right, good morning, young learners.
How you doing, young man? You gonna make today count? - Yes, sir.
- That's what I like to hear.
That's what I like to hear.
All right.
My man Preach.
What's good, Coach Baker? Glad to have you.
- Yes, sir.
- You ready? - Yeah.
- Wow.
Let's get you situated, introduce you to the boys.
Uh, most of the players have study hall first period, so I'm, uh 'Scuse me.
So, as you can see, a lot of these boys are, uh, little hard to handle.
I tutored dudes on death row.
Can't be much harder than that.
The last guy ran outta here in tears, so Not everybody is built for this.
He actually served 3 tours in Afghanista That doesn't matter.
Go in there, do your thing.
Remember, they They do smell fear, so be careful.
Coach Baker, you're needed in the cafeteria.
You can go handle that cafeteria situation.
I'll introduce myself.
- You sure? - I'm sure.
All right.
- My guy, my guy.
Nice to see you again.
- What up, what up? - Have a good day.
- Wow.
It is seriously like being at Beverly all over again.
Ah, what can I say? People love me.
- OK.
- Hmm, hmm.
Have you seen Spencer? I mean, we're supposed to be meeting for snack time.
Yeah, I really wish you wouldn't refer to it as "snack time" when you're talking to me.
Oh, what, you can't handle the fact that your sister's a snack? - Don't make me throw up.
- Seriously, where is he? Look, Liv, the depth chart results are going up today, OK? He probably just stopped by the gym.
He's been working like a madman trying to make third-string, all right? No depth chart, no playing time.
Yeah, I know.
My dad's a football coach, too? - Oh, your dad's a coach, too? - Uh, yeah.
You're annoying.
- Hey, Jordan! - Wait.
Uh, give me a sec.
Hello? Yo, - we did that.
- What's all this? Hey, Coach posted the depth chart.
- I made third string.
- Oh, that's what's up.
Check the chart? Is your name up there? Hey, don't even worry about it.
You'll get your shot.
My shot? Hey, what's up? I I know we said we were meeting up today, but, um, - I think that Jenn needs me - Liv, I can't right now, all right? There's something important I gotta take care of.
Hello? Come on.
Come on, come on, come on.
Coach, Coach.
This is some B.
, man.
I don't know if this Coach Garrett dude's got it in for me or what I need you to call me back.
Something ain't right.
I mean, Jenn is technically missing! - Yeah.
- I mean, she could be in danger, and he just blew me off! I mean, he didn't even let me finish my damn sentence! And I'm just stuck with you.
OK, well, hold on.
I think the words you're looking for - are "thank you"? - Look, I I'm sorry, OK? I just I'm scared that Jenn's fallen off the wagon.
I mean, her parents have no idea where she is, and I I know firsthand how quickly she can spiral.
OK, OK, whoa, whoa, whoa, Liv, hey.
Stop worrying, OK? We're gonna find her, however long it takes.
Wait, wait.
Hello? Draymond who? Oh, oh, OK.
Yes, um, thank you so much.
We'll we'll be right there.
- She's at Slauson Café.
- All right, that's cool.
Come on.
- Impressive digs.
- Oh, my God.
Um, you're here, in my studio.
Um, - I thought you were on tour.
- Clearly not anymore.
Did you think I was kidding - when I said I wanted to work together? - You know, I just I didn't know if it was one of those things people say to, like, be polite, you know, like, uh, "let's do lunch" or "sure, I'll help you move.
" No, no, I I said it and I meant every word.
OK, well, uh, let's you know, we can set a time.
- I can do - How 'bout now? You know, I'll just call my manager real quick, I need to check in, and then we can get started on something.
Yeah, now now works.
That's great.
- OK.
- OK.
It doesn't feel right dropping in on Coach Montes like this.
Dude, relax.
You got to shoot your shot whenever you can take it, all right? You said you wanted a job as a student coach.
- Now, you get to pitch yourself - I should have called first or something.
- I've only met the man one time.
- I'm telling you, Coach Mr.
Montes is cool, all right? I've been talking you up to him.
So has Coach Mrs.
You know, you could just call them both "Coach Montes," right? Yeah.
Parker, you're late for warm-ups.
Uh, my bad, Coach.
I just wanted to bring my boy Asher here to chat you up a little before practice.
Uh, I'm sorry for the unannounced visit, Coach Mr.
M uh, Coach Montes.
It's no worries.
It's good to see you again.
How's the ticker, tin man? Uh, it's good.
It's good.
I'm feeling great.
My wife told me how well you handled the diagnosis.
Hopefully she also told you that I can break down film and how I designed plays for the championship game, which is why I think I would be an asset on your staff as a student coach, sir.
Nicky? - Here you go, Coach.
- I got to get practice started, but I want you to watch game tape from the battle for Cali in 2012.
The annual rivalry game with G.
? I remember that game.
You guys were, like, a 20-point underdog and still won.
It was my first job on a coaching staff at a D1 school under Coach Fox.
Take a look at it.
Let me know if something jumps out at you.
Will do.
I I won't let you down.
- Hey.
- Um Why do principals carry around all these keys? Why is Preach in a classroom? Oh, I put him there.
I wanted to test him out as a, uh, a possible replacement tutor for the football team.
He's a convicted felon with two strikes.
He is not allowed on school grounds.
Well, actually, as principal, it's left to my discretion who is and isn't allowed here.
Interim principal.
Look, anyway, I'm having a great time at this job.
Uh, thanks for asking.
- Billy - But I wanted to talk to you about incorporating my financial literacy course into the - The main curriculum.
- Billy And Preach, he's off to a really great start, so the the only thing I'm not really feeling are those keys.
Well, you won't have to carry them much longer 'cause there been a very strong candidate who has emerged for the principal slot.
Oh OK.
For real? Yes.
Change is coming, so don't get Preach's hopes up.
Oh Oh Oh I it's cool.
It's not me, though.
It's giving Timbaland vibes, and I am just I'm looking for something different.
Um, ahem.
Uh, check this out.
It sounds too much like Swizz Beatz.
Um You just have, uh, like, a bigger sound, so I'm trying to cater to that.
By not being you? If I wanted Timbaland, I'd be working with him.
You wrote "Trust" for Patience Robinson, right? Trust in the moment Trust in the future Trust in my people - But I trust in me first - You know "Trust"? The vibe of that song, the blend, Patience's essence, her voice There's nothing out there that sounds like that right now.
What you did for her with that song is what I want you to do for me Cultivate a unique sound, take my essence and put a twist on it.
How 'bout we just take a break from music for a second - and grab some lunch? - Uh, no, we got work to do.
Look, you're right, and part of the reason I'm able to do that for Patience is because I know her so well, so I think it's time that I get to know you.
First love, last love, greatest heartbreak I want it all.
- And if I'm hungry? - That's what takeout is for.
- There she is! - Ha ha ha! Whoo! I've been waiting for this Layla Keating all day.
Let's hear it.
- Hmm.
Ha ha! - Gonna write this down.
Coach! - Spence, what's up? - I've been busting my ass trying to make this depth chart, but I never stood a chance.
Coach Garrett clearly got his favorites.
Whoa, son.
It's not favoritism.
Isaiah's a better player.
If anyone should be pissed, it should be him.
- Look, Coach, this is - No.
That scholarship you're here on? That was Isaiah's.
Coach Kenny would only come work for me if the scholarship went to you.
Is that true? It's slightly more complicated than that, but Look, Spence, I believe in your talent.
And you're lucky he does, 11, 'cause I haven't seen it yet.
Can you play? Sure.
So can everyone else on this team.
I've been coming in and I've been putting in the work, Coach.
There's a saying: "Success is rented, not owned," and that rent is due every day.
Your problem is you're trying to pay it with the currency of what you accomplished in high school, but your ego won't allow you to see that.
The truth stings a bit, doesn't it? Now that it's out there, how are you gonna respond to the challenge? Aw! - That was right there! - Gotta catch it.
Let's hear it.
What do you got? The opposing QB had a tell.
His left shoulder dipped whenever it was a running play, it stayed level when he was passing.
Watch it again.
I've been floating in my Oh, God.
Don't you dare answer that.
Are you really gonna put me in the middle of this? OK.
There she is.
We've been looking all over for you.
Your parents called.
They were scared.
I was scared.
I mean, why aren't you in school? It's your first day.
- I'm fine.
- That is not an answer.
OK, I think I know how we can get it out of her.
Are you seriously trying to bribe me with ice cream like I'm 5? Ice cream? No, no, no, no.
This this is not just ice cream.
This is a family concoction, the Baker delight.
If you're so tough take a bite.
Go on.
- Mm-hmm.
- Mm-hmm.
Now Spill it.
Why'd you cut your first day of school? I skipped 'cause I was afraid of being back.
All my friends there They're who I used to party with.
Sounds familiar.
Really? I've been working so hard to stay clean this summer that I kind of Didn't think about what it would feel like when summer was over and had to be around them again.
Well, unfortunately, there will always be triggers everywhere.
Even I was worried about starting at G.
and being triggered, but that's why we work the program.
It acts as a defense against that first temptation.
And if you're worried about being triggered, I mean, call me.
That's what I'm here for.
So how pissed are my parents? Oh, let's just say, um - Enjoy that while you have the time.
- Yeah.
Yo, I'm telling y'all hey, hey! I'm telling y'all! I'm telling y'all, he had bars.
Look, there's a lot of similarities between Shakespeare and hip-hop.
Your boy Shakespeare used to dwelleth in ye olde traphouse? All right, I'mma give you a line, and you tell me if it's Shakespeare or hip-hop.
"Men would rather use their broken weapons than their bare hands.
" - Easy.
NBA YoungBoy.
- Nah, that's Moneybagg Yo.
- That's YoungBoy, bro.
- Look, both of y'all are wrong.
That's Othello.
That's one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies OK, here's another one: "And their love for it is the reason that I have become this praised.
" That's definitely Shakespeare.
- You sure? - Who else? Man, you're wrong again.
That's Lupe Fiasco, "Put You on Game.
" I see I'mma have to put both y'all on game, man.
- Fight! Fight! - Hey! Hey! Y'all stay right there! I'll be right back! Out the way, out the way.
All right, coming through.
Clear out, clear out.
Excuse me.
Quiet! Quiet! Aw, come on, now.
Not again.
Jojo and Vernon, you Y'all know better.
Pick up your stuff, get your behinds in my office.
Look, don't worry about it, Coach Baker.
Let me handle 'em.
Cool When you say, "handle it," you mean Take 'em back to the classroom for tutoring.
For tutoring.
Gentlemen, you're gonna go with Mr.
- Get your stuff.
- Everybody else, get moving.
- Man, y'all heard him.
Let's go.
- Get to class.
Robinson? I don't know if you remember me.
Detective, um, Poworski.
Oh, good.
You do remember.
I was hoping to speak to your girlfriend Coop.
I have some questions about Monique Moore's murder.
Um, I thought the case was closed, like, investigation done.
- Is Coop available? - She's outta town right now.
Well, that's convenient.
Maybe you could help me.
You see, some new information has come to light.
I gotta say, it's always baffled me how Coop made it to the hospital after she was shot and passed out.
- Good Samaritan, I guess.
- Yeah, OK, but wouldn't a good Samaritan stick around and make sure she was OK? Maybe just a semi-good Samaritan.
You're funny.
I I didn't know you were a comedian and a singer.
Speaking of, it would be a shame for you to ruin your blossoming career because you were covering for your girlfriend.
See, we call that accessory after the fact.
I think that's a conversation you should be having with her attorney, and that would be me.
Oh, sorry.
It's not "D.
" anymore, right? - We were just having a casual conversation.
- Mm-hmm, a conversation that is now over, and if you'd like to converse with my client again, you can reach out to my assistant and schedule a meeting, if Patience is available.
All right, I got a few minutes before the coaches' meeting.
Tell me what you saw on the game film.
Well, um Your D-lineman led the conference in sacks, but he was frustrated all game 'cause his bull rush wasn't working.
Should have switched technique.
Still not it, but you raised a solid observation.
Tell me more.
Um, OK.
Uh There are a lot of gifted athletes out there who don't realize that just because they've had success with one approach Doesn't mean that they can apply it to every situation.
You have to have self-awareness a-and versatility to know when to change your method of attack 'Cause ultimately, like, if all you have is a hammer, everything's gonna start looking like nails.
Keep trying.
Coop, call me back! For real, please call me back, seriously.
She is still not answering, and I know that her dad said cell service is crappy out there, but, like like, damn! OK, honey, I need you to calm down, OK? - Here, drink the tea - Thank you.
And I need you to tell me everything about that night.
Start talking.
- I want to hear how it goes.
- All right.
- All right, man.
- 'Sup, Coach? - Hey, now, what's happening? - Look like we both survived day one.
Yeah, yeah, I heard you were a big hit.
Plus, Jabari's English teacher did a double-take after his quiz today, said he was quoting Shakespeare.
- I guess that's 'cause of you.
- Man, it ain't that deep, man.
Look, these kids just need to know that you really care about 'em, - got they best interest at heart.
- Mm-hmm.
I mean, when they feel that, they'll give you they best, man, even run through a wall for you.
But I ain't telling you nothing that you don't already know.
I mean, that's what makes you a great coach and great principal.
I mean, your job is basically the same, right? The teachers are like your coaching staff, and the students are your players.
- You're back here tomorrow? - Fa sho.
I told the boys I'll break down how "The Great Gatsby" is like "Love & Hip Hop.
" Heh! What? Atlanta, not Hollywood.
Of course.
Ha ha! All right, man.
- Hey.
- Hey, I been trying to call.
And I've been busy, just like you.
- Hold up.
Are you mad at me? - Spencer, I needed you today, and you were nowhere to be found.
My entire college football career is falling apart, Liv.
- I was dealing with that.
- So you couldn't be here with me here today because you were dealing with football, and yet Jordan is right by my side.
Jordan and I are not walking the same path.
We don't have the same struggles.
You know what? It's whatever.
It doesn't even matter.
I'm here now, so - What's going on? - Nothing.
I've I've handled it.
I mean, I I thought Jenn had relapsed, but I found her and she's OK.
But, I mean, this This could have been life-or-death.
- But you just said she was fine.
- Right, and you had more important things, like almighty football.
And what happened to you looking forward to our snack breaks together? Don't do that.
Don't act like you not a priority to me.
Things here have changed.
Look, my football dreams are shattering, Liv.
I'm not here playing games.
I got to make this D1 thing work, and right now, that is not happening! Coach Garrett admitted that he ain't even want me here! - Spencer, I I didn't know.
- Nah, nah, nah.
It's cool.
It's cool.
You good.
You with Jenn, right? Yeah, you should go take care of her.
Tell her I said what's up and I'mma holla at you later.
- Ha ha ha! - You really pawned the ring? Hell yes, I did, gave the money to charity.
Took a lot longer for the heart to heal, but that's life.
Well, I think I have the beginnings of something.
What? OK, Keating! - Oh, I see you.
- Took me long enough.
What do you want? Big dream, wishes granted, you could just reach out and touch it.
What is that thing? Uh, I'm doing it.
No, you're playing it safe, and I'm trying to figure out why.
Look, if you can honestly tell me this small, indie thing is legitimately the dream, then I'll leave it alone, but if you're playing it safe because you fear what it'll take to dominate as a female producer with a major label, that's a whole 'nother story.
Maybe your nerves just got the better of you today, not your talent, but then you pushed through and look at the sound you created.
So just gonna ask you one more time: What do you want? I want the empire.
There it is.
I think I spent so long trying to carve a path separate from my dad that I I convinced myself that small and indie was the dream.
- But it's not.
- But it's not.
Then stop being scared and take the leap, baby girl.
The industry needs you.
- Ooh.
I gotta get going.
- OK.
Uh, well, thank you for today, for everything.
Um, I'm gonna keep working on this for you, and then I'll send it to your manager or Or you give it to me in person when I come back tomorrow.
- OK.
- You're building that empire, Layla, and it'll start with our first collaboration.
You just gonna keep banging stuff, or you want to actually say what's going on? Isaiah made third string over me, and I ain't even sniffing the depth chart because the coach has got it out for me, and then, me and Liv got into it 'cause she don't understand how important all this is! You're talking to the guy whose spot you took in high school and his girlfriend, too, twice, so, yeah, I I get it, man.
- Ash, listen, man - Bro, after the day I've had, I'm not trying to have that convo tonight.
Look, you've just never faced this kind of adversity on the field.
Come on, man.
I faced adversity before.
Not like this; Not on a D1 level, not where you work your ass off and things still don't go your way.
So what do I do? What, just give up? Change your whole approach.
Get outta your head.
And how am I supposed to do that? Relax, dude.
Just clear your mind, like a blade of grass.
- It's grass, man.
It don't have a mind.
- Just focus, all right? Feel the energy around you and flow with it.
What does that even mean, bro? Your life is one big, powerful river, and you're trying to be a salmon and fight your hardest to swim upstream, but it's OK to be a regular fish and go with the flow.
That actually makes sense.
Especially since there's a hungry bear waiting upstream to turn you into Sushi.
A'ight, you lost me again.
Bro, just trust.
Just flow with it.
Yeah, that's it.
Be at peace with the universe and your surroundings.
Be nimble.
Be nimble.
Be nimble.
So, um, I want to lose "interim" from the title.
I want to be the actual principal of South Crenshaw.
- Excuse me? - What? - Oh.
You serious? - Yeah.
I I've given it a lot of thought, and and I think I'm the best candidate for the job.
Might I remind you, a job I had to trick you into taking.
Uh, but that was before I knew how great of a fit I'd be, and Ahem.
I'm ready to do this for the long haul.
You mean before the D1 schools and the NFL comes knocking.
Don't forget, Billy, I know you and your dream.
Why are you giving me such grief? - Because I care about South Crenshaw! - OK.
So do I.
And I care about you.
Look, let's keep it real.
You're a good man with some selfish tendencies.
Well, that's true of a lot of people, but I'm I always rise to the occasion.
Well We've found someone who doesn't need to rise to the occasion because she's already there.
She works at the school, she has tons of experience, and she's committed to these kids and she lives right here off of Crenshaw.
She's the best choice for the school, Billy.
I'm sorry.
And then she flat-out lied to the cops and said that she shot Mo, and there was nothing I could do about it.
Coop stays putting herself in these situations.
Well, it wasn't the wisest decision, but I'm sure she was just doing what she thought was best.
Yeah, and now it's coming back to bite her in the ass and me, too.
Well, we don't know if there is anything or if Poworski's just throwing darts - at the wall to see what sticks.
- Yeah, well, it's pretty clear that he has me as a bull's-eye, so If he or anybody tries to approach you again, do not say a word, OK? In the meantime, I still have some old friends at the D.
's office.
If there's any real evidence, they'll know, and I'll make some calls first thing in the morning.
- Until then, breathe, OK? - OK.
And I'll let you know when to worry.
Look, all I'm saying is he's on scholarship.
I'm a walk-on, Liv.
The stakes are different.
Hey, guys.
- Fight with Spencer.
- Oh.
Hey, man.
Sorry to interrupt.
JJ just let me in and said something about a zentorship? Ha ha! Yeah, nah, you good.
I was just clearing my head a little.
- Turns out meditation's for me.
- Ah.
- Who knew? - Mm-hmm.
Uh, sorry about missing all those calls.
Uh, I guess I kinda got caught up in the principal thing.
But, uh, what's going on with Garrett? Your voicemail said that something ain't right? Yeah.
I mean, I was just in my head about the whole situation, but I'm good now.
- You sure? - Yeah.
I was trying to be the salmon, swimming upstream, but I just got to be nimble, take a beat, figure out what I really am.
- That actually makes sense.
- Right? JJ.
You're scared to go home to all them women, ain't you? Spencer, it's it's so many of 'em.
- Do you hear that? - Silence.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
What you working on? Uh, I'm praying nothing.
How was your day, Mr.
Principal? Uh, interim principal.
And it was exhilarating, yeah.
- That's amazing.
- Yeah, so much so that I think I might set my sights on this as a permanent gig.
I mean, Grace has already shot me down because she's She has a candidate, and she has experience and she lives in the neighborhood So what's the plan? I mean, come on, Billy.
I haven't seen you this excited about anything in a while.
- You can't just give up.
- Yeah.
I shouldn't be a salmon.
I should be nimble.
What does that even mean? I don't know, but it sounded really cool when Spencer said it.
All right, well, if Grace and the search committee are so high on this principal candidate because she lives in South L.
, then maybe being nimble is moving you there.
I mean, moving us there.
's house is empty.
and Mrs.
OK, ahem.
I had the most amazing day.
- Mmm.
- Um, so - I'm interrupting.
- Ha ha ha! OK, um, I'm really sorry.
I'm just I'm gonna go up to my room.
No, sweetie, it's OK.
Tell us about your day.
No, no, no, really.
It it's fine.
It can wait.
- OK.
- OK.
Like I said, G.
's is empty.
You mean to tell me you would actually move to South L.
, permanently? Of course I would.
I mean, this obviously means a lot to you, so I'm willing to do whatever it takes to fight for it.
Baby, you make me fall more and more and more in love with you every day.
Plus you'd get to have your own bathroom.
- Oh, God.
- Yeah.
- There's just so many of them.
- Uh-huh.
Look, this'll only take a minute, I promise.
Come on.
I just need to grab one thing.
Jordan, I told you that I don't want to be here.
Good luck, bro.
I'm sorry.
Yes, I had a bad day.
Yes, my football career feels like it's falling apart at the seams, and yes, the pressures of being an athlete at this level is something we both need to understand.
But But I should have never came at you like that.
My mind was all cluttered with everything and I just didn't take the time to see things from your perspective, but I'm gonna do better.
So What declutters your mind? Meditation.
- Medi really? - Yeah.
That is so not the answer I was expecting.
Yeah, me, too.
Um I'm sorry, too.
Yes Today was scary when I thought Jenn was in trouble.
And yes, being a sponsor scares me, but But I should have taken a second to consider things from your perspective because I know what it takes to achieve the dreams that you have, and I know the sacrifice that comes with being an elite athlete and I guess that I just hadn't readied myself, you know, - to become a part of that sacrifice, so - Hey, hey, it's a balance, OK? I'll find it.
I'll find it.
We'll find it, OK? For the both of us.
We will.
That was our first big fight.
I guess it was.
Well, you know what that means.
- What? - Makeup sex.
Yes, ma'am.
You're looking a little rough.
You look like you could use a morning jolt.
You drink matcha? You look like a matcha man.
I stayed up all night looking at both sides of the ball, every single play, and I cannot figure out what it is that you want me to find.
It's like I'm looking for a needle in a haystack that probably doesn't even exist.
So no matcha? Green tea? Look, if you didn't want to hire me, you should have just said so instead of wasting my time.
You pick up anything from our QB? Other than the fact that he wasn't connecting with his deep passes, no.
Exactly, and the reason he was off-target - is because he wasn't properly - Planting his back foot, yeah.
Turns out he couldn't plant it because he was injured.
He had a broken bone in his foot, and he hid it from us.
We should have picked up on that.
As the QB coach, I should have picked up on it.
I don't understand how it's your fault if he hid it from you.
Part of being a coach is being able to protect the players from themselves.
I was a young assistant coach, and I should have caught that.
Now, look, son, you have phenomenal instincts.
There's no doubt about that, but you're not ready.
You'll get there.
All right, I don't have a coaching position open, - but I do need someone to wash jerseys.
- I'll do it.
No hesitation, huh? If I'm serious about wanting to coach, which I am, I'd be a fool not to do whatever it takes to learn from the best, which you are.
- I'll get a load started right away.
- Mmm, one more thing.
That tell you picked up from the quarterback yesterday? Nobody's ever caught that.
Good job, son.
'Sup, Coach? - Oh, OK.
- I had to step it up.
Heard a few people ain't happy about me being here.
They ain't too thrilled about me being here, either.
I ain't going nowhere, though.
I appreciate you taking a chance on me, giving me that shot.
A lot of people wouldn't.
Hey, as long as I'm principal, you'll always have a job here, if you're willing to rock with me.
Just say the word and I'll run through a wall for you.
My man.
- Spence.
- Hey.
What's up? I saw you out there hitting the jugs machine.
- Yeah, yeah.
I wanted to get some catches in.
- All right.
Listen, I wanted to apologize to you for my behavior yesterday.
It was outta line, me coming at you and Coach like that.
Well, like I said, what are you gonna do about it? I'mma show Coach Garrett why he's lucky to have me on his team.
Changing my whole approach.
- It's time for me to be the bear.
- Heh heh! Yeah.
- Ha ha! - That's what I'm talking about, man.
That's what I like to hear.
So what's up? You about to hit the weights? No, I'mma hit up our game film in about a hour, with you if you got the time.
- Uh-huh.
- I'm serious, man.
I'm trying to study every single one of our players, inside and out.
Oh, fa sho.
I'll make the time.
- Why not now? - Nah.
Something else important I gotta take care of first.
I'll holla at you.
Good morning.
Hey, Patience.
Uh, we need to talk.
Um, I spoke to my friends at the D.
's office, and they've found some incriminating evidence against Coop.
They wouldn't get into specifics, but remember when I said that I'd tell you when it's time to worry? Mm-hmm.
It's time.
Coop needs to get home, like, now.
Greg, move your head!
