All American (2018) s04e20 Episode Script

Champagne Glasses

1 Let's go, I want this group moved in tighter.
Let's go, now! Move him up front with this group.
I want him back! Let's go, let's go.
Come on, move.
We received a 9-1-1 call that there was a slasher party happening at this address tonight.
- Wait.
What? - Yo, man, face down.
According to this caller, there's a person of interest threatening people with a knife, putting multiple lives at risk! I I'm the one who actually threw the party, Officer, but it's not a slasher party, I swear.
You guys don't see what's happening? We're being swatted.
What, you're saying someone pranked the cops into coming here? Why? Just a Halloween party.
- Nothing's been confirmed.
- Sergeant? Until now.
What are you doing? Wait.
That cop just signaled that the back was all clear, so we should be good to go, right? We're done when I say we're done.
Last I checked, no-knock warrants were illegal in California.
You didn't properly announce yourself before entering.
I'm pretty sure one of my friends got that on camera if you need proof.
You might want to call your boss 'cause I'm calling mine.
- Man, my bad, you guys.
- Why? Us getting swatted had nothing to do with you, bruh.
Thank God you guys are OK.
- You're good? - Yeah, yeah.
Hi, honey.
Uh, where's Jordan? Layla needed fresh air.
He went with her.
- You OK, baby? - Yeah.
I'm just pissed more than anything.
- How did this happen? - I don't know, but if it wasn't for Coop, we would still be face-down on the floor.
Guess working for Mrs.
Baker's paying off.
She pushed hard to end those no-knock warrants.
I can never forget that.
OK, the cops are tracing the call, so we should hear something soon.
Yeah, well, when we do, I'm pretty sure Wade Waters' name will come up.
Why Wade? What's going on with this kid? All night, someone has been calling me from this unknown number, and then right after SWAT arrived, I got a text with a devil emoji.
That's Wade.
- Honey, are you sure? - Yes! He's trying to shake me up because I dug into his past for my N.
- Wait, I thought you scrapped that article.
Well, he doesn't know that, and I found out some crazy stuff about him in high school, - like some messed-up bullying - All right, look, it's late, and we all just had guns pointed at our heads for what felt like a lifetime.
Baker said they tracing the call, so let's just take a beat and wait on whatever evidence.
- What? No! This - Olivia, this isn't a story anymore; This is a criminal investigation now.
In the meantime, I don't think it's a good idea - for you girls to stay here alone.
- Yeah.
Y'all can stay with us at the beach house for a few days.
I'm gonna stay with my parents.
Seriously, you didn't have to walk me in.
Uh, I kinda feel like I did, especially after tonight.
- So, Layla, I was - So oh.
- My bad.
You first.
Go ahead.
- It's it's all you.
Look, what I said to you at the party tonight I meant every word.
- Jordan - Please, just Hear me out? Tonight reminded me that life is too short, OK? And I don't want to waste a second of it.
I want to be present, I want us to be present, laughing, connecting, pushing each other to to find the best part of ourselves.
But w-we are doing that as friends.
OK, but I want more.
Jordan, um I tried the "more than friends" thing with Clay, and I ended up hurting him.
- Yeah, but this is different.
- I dated Asher and Spencer.
You know, I can't be the girl that dates everyone in the vortex.
OK, I hear you, and that is totally valid, OK, but forget about the vortex for a second.
Tell me how you really feel about me, about us.
I feel, um Lucky because I found a best friend where I least expected to, and I don't want to screw that up.
Best best friend.
Rise and shine for the mighty Condors ♪ Flying high ♪ Watch 'em soar, all hail ♪ Ah, oh, look at Spence, out here siloed in his peaceful cocoon.
Man, I'm just doing everything I can to bounce back from last night, get my head in the right place before tomorrow's big homecoming game.
We fight through ♪ Look, I I don't know much about meditation, but I'm pretty sure this song right here ain't it.
Heh! That's G.
's fight song, easily the worst construction of instruments, - lyrics, and, uh, talent.
- Please.
Music died for a few years when they made Coastal's fight song.
Maybe it's time to put your money where your cleats are.
- I'm down.
What you thinking? - Hmm.
Whoever wins homecoming, the loser has to not only wear the winner's jersey, but you got to walk around campus a whole day, singing their fight song, loud as hell.
- Say less.
I'm down.
- OK, bet.
Ha ha ha! Yo, you good? - Yeah.
Why? - Hey, I'm just checking.
Of all the people who got swatted last night, we the only ones who have actually been shot.
I mean, last night hit a little different for me.
I just I thought it might have for you, too.
It did, but that was last night.
Right now, I'm focused on homecoming.
- Now, Spence, what you're doing is deflecting.
- Coop, I'm good, for real.
Even after Liv chose to stay with her parents instead of here? Things have been a little off with me and Liv lately, but we working on it, and if staying with her parents is what she wants, then I gotta trust she's making the right call.
What? What? Nothing.
It's just you're compartmentalizing, - and I never thought I'd see the day.
- It's not that.
I'm just promising myself I'mma stop playing superhero to everybody and focus on me.
Look, I gotta bounce.
I'll holla at you.
Hey, hey, real quick.
What if Liv is right, all right? What if Wade is behind the swatting? You thought about what happens then, to homecoming, to y'all's relationship? - Hey, sweetheart.
- Hey.
So, uh, Jordan was right.
- About? - Uh, not getting you breakfast.
He said it would be wise for me to not get between you and that burrito.
Uh, well, you you didn't have to go to Jordan for that; You coulda just asked me.
Yeah, well, I tried, but your phone just kept going to voicemail.
It's good to see you doing OK, all things considered.
You really don't have to worry, Dad; Jordan is doing that enough for the both of you with his hourly check-ins, despite our Hey, is there something going on between you two? Between me and Jordan? No, no.
We're just, uh, we're just friends.
- Friends? - Yes, friends.
Turning Formonica Records into a super-label is my only focus right now.
- OK, I will officially mind my business.
- Thank you.
Just remember what I said about using your work to hide from a good thing that scares you, all right? - Mm-hmm.
- Anyways, I should get going, but listen, there is, uh, something I want to run by you, but I just need, like, a day or two to finish ironing out a few things.
- OK, yeah, cool.
Just let me know.
- Cool.
I love you.
A woman that's changed ♪ Hey, gents.
Look, um, my apologies.
First things first.
Spence, are you good? - Yeah, all good.
What's up? - Look, as you both know, your mother is a-an amazing woman.
She's the best thing that's happened to me in a long time.
Full disclosure I can't see my life without her, so With both of your blessings, I would like to make her an honest woman.
How is she not an honest woman? No, that's the O.
way of saying he wants to propose - Right? - Right.
Aren't you moving to Oakland? Yes, and and, Dillon, I I understand that complicates things because you and your mom may not be ready to leave Crenshaw, but y-your mom and I are grown.
We can definitely make the long-distance thing work.
So what do you guys think? We signed off on you months ago, man.
Oh, my God.
- Ha ha! - Oh.
Listen, hey, and I know Moms can't see a future without you.
I just got one request, though Yeah, don't say the "honest woman" thing when I when I propose? - Dude, it's confusing.
- We're gonna get you right, though.
With Moms, it's the three F's - Food, flowers, and - Freddie Jackson.
- OK.
I - Heh heh! - I like Freddie Jackson.
- OK.
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm.
This food man, this food is amazing.
Yeah, it's my take on tri-tip hash.
OK, you got a new job, now you a you a whole new chef? I love that, I love that.
Look, Patience, about last night I mean, what are we doing? I don't know I don't know.
Look, how 'bout Tomorrow, after Spencer's game, we get away for a couple days? Maybe that time alone will give us some clarity? I like the sound of that.
Um, OK, I have to go to the studio, so - Bye.
- Bye.
Hey, Coach.
- Aw, you coming for my job now, King? - Coach.
- Coach, what up? - Heh! What's up? Look, I been going over our route concepts for the game, right? We got some mismatches to exploit, like this got to be an out-and-up Man, yo.
Man, give me the top.
Ha ha ha! What's up, man? You worried about playing against your friends tomorrow, huh? We went through some crazy stuff together last night, man.
Them boys is my family.
You know, this is not gonna be the last time you play against family.
Look, on game day, the only family you got are the ones you share the sidelines with.
Yes, sir.
Hey, that's right! - What's your take on Wade? - Hmm.
My take don't matter.
It matters to me.
Long as Wade follows the rules, I've got to like him, but If there was ever a black sheep in the family Yeah, that'd be him.
Wow! - Hey.
- This place is swanky! How much are we paying you, Adams? Uh Coach, what what are you doing here, sir? I was in the neighborhood.
I thought I'd stop by, offer you a ride to practice.
Uh I I mean, I have a car, but Uh, yeah, yeah.
Uh, sure.
- Yes, sir.
- OK.
Let's go.
Hey, what's up, guys? This is my last homecoming game, so this one hits extra-hard, and I want to give a big shout-out to my o-line right here.
Yo, man, they keep me clean, and that is why they call me "Lo Intocable" "The Untouchable.
" - Lo Intocable! - El! El Intocable Oh, my God.
I can't with this guy.
I told you not to listen to that.
It has been a full day and there's still nothing.
I mean, Wade's clearly intocable when it comes to crimes, too.
- These things take time.
- Do you even think Wade is guilty? - I do.
- Really? Absolutely, because you said it.
Thank you! Why can't it be that easy for Spencer? Because I'm your father, sweetheart.
I can't afford not to believe you, and the situation's a bit more complicated when it comes to Spence.
Wade is on his team; He already came for him once, solely based on your word, and When I was wrong.
I know.
Not this time.
The cops traced the phone call back to Wade's cellphone.
You see? I knew it! So what's next? Wade - You gotta go with them, son.
- Why? What's going on? Wade Waters, you're under arrest for swatting.
You serious? Come on.
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say Yo, it was their party! Look, I wasn't even there! - Those two set me up! - You have the right to an attorney Yo, they set me up! Hey.
We gotta talk to 'em, man.
OK, and say what? J.
, you are QB1, and you need 'em behind you.
Start with the truth.
- Come on.
- Yeah.
Hey, guys, uh, real real quick.
Look, I know you're all wondering what the hell's going on.
Last night, Wade had me and my friends swatted roomful of cops, guns pointed at our heads, OK? - It was crazy, it was messed up, and - Yo, Cap.
I was with Wade last night.
Ain't no way he had y'all swatted.
The cops traced the call back to Wade's phone, Romeo.
Like the cops can't fake evidence to make your moms happy.
Got to admit it, man.
You're just mad you ain't getting no run, so you had him set up.
Me me and my friends, we could have died last night! You understand that? Yo! Yo! Listen, listen, emotions are high, but we got a big game to prepare for, y'all.
We gotta get on the same page, find a way to rise above the chaos and be there for each other, on and off that field! We got to unite, as a family.
You're right.
It is about family, but you and J.
chose your other family.
Olivia Baker, the reporter who snitched on Wade, is Jordan's sister and Spencer's girlfriend.
- Nah.
- What? But Wade is our family, our real QB1.
Way we see it, he's innocent until proven otherwise.
Nothin' ever did come close ♪ That's the only reason why ♪ - Hey.
Skye, listen, I - Hey, a question.
You ever been to wine school? OK, you do know I'm only 18, right? Ain't nobody letting me in their wine school.
The classes are online, Coop.
We'll get to do them from the intimate comforts of my bedroom.
Mmm, I see what this is.
You're trying to take advantage of the girl.
You say that like it's a bad thing.
We can also keep it super chill and make breakfast for dinner.
I know you've been dying to make that tri-tip hash recipe, and I've already picked out a few reds that would go very nicely Look, I slept with Patience last night.
It kinda just happened, and we're gonna give our thing another try.
I just figured you should know.
You are such a coward.
You're really that scared of how I make you feel that you're gonna go back to something you already know doesn't work? - No, Skye, it's not like that - I know you and Patience have the history, yes, and I know that you love her, but Can you honestly tell me that you're still in love with her? As of lately, Spencer's been doing - most of his damage in the slot.
- Yeah, I know.
They like to exploit those mismatches against linebackers.
True, true, but I like our chances with JJ on him.
I mean, he played with and against Spencer plenty in high school.
He knows his tendencies, but you knew that already.
You want to tell me why you really offered me a ride, coach? We both know that there are closer beaches to your house.
I had heard about the swatting.
I wanted to make sure you were all right, that it didn't mess with your head too much.
'Cause you need me focused for the game.
'Cause you're a good kid, and I was worried.
Thank you.
Looks like your boy is up.
Jordan Baker's now the starting QB for tomorrow's game.
Really? Wow.
I'm happy for him; The last 24 hours have been rough for all of us.
He could use this good news.
Now, I need to know all you know on Jordan.
Look, I'm not asking you to break a bro code here.
I just need the basics.
Still got a game to win here, Adams.
I left you, like, a dozen messages.
I just needed a minute.
You know things go sideways with us real fast when we're not communicating.
I thought we agreed on that.
I was right about Wade.
Yeah, well, that's why I tried to call.
Stuff's kinda crazy with the team right now, but at least his ass is in jail, right? That's all you have to say? 'Cause I saw your face when I first said that it was him, and you didn't believe me.
- No, I didn't know what to believe.
- Hmm.
We're supposed to be more honest with each other, Liv, but lately all you do is hide stuff from me: The prank calls, you still digging into Wade's past Are you seriously blaming me right now? I'm not blaming you, Liv, I'm keeping it a buck.
We are a team.
In the beginning, I told you I will always, always have your back.
I can't do that with you putting distance between us.
Well, I had to because I I could feel me losing myself and doubting my instincts.
- What, and that's my fault? - No, Spencer, it's just a fact.
Before we got swatted, you, uh You said something about people who choose to pretend.
What did you mean by that? You've been pretending with me? Liv.
- I love you.
- I love you, too Mmm.
These past couple of months have been really hard.
I can't, with the arguing in this endless loop every day.
I can't, with the walking on eggshells around each other's dreams because what we're passionate about is just, like, pulling us in opposing directions.
It shouldn't be this hard.
It just shouldn't.
So because it's hard, you don't want to do it no more? - I didn't say that.
- Then what are you saying? I don't know! But something has to change.
I can't keep doing this.
Wade was just cleared of all the charges, so there's that.
Oh, come on, Laura.
Are you for real? That's the problem with swatting, is that if nobody's harmed, the person that called it in gets off with a misdemeanor, at best.
And I'm just supposed to accept that? My kids were in that house! Hello! They're my kids, too! OK, Jordan said that Wade would probably get his spot back in the homecoming game.
- Is that true? - I mean, it's up to Garrett, but yeah.
So his ass just gets to roam free - with no consequence? - Liv, language.
Golden Angeles is about to let the person who just tried to kill me and my friends play in a game like nothing happened, - and you're worried about my language? - Hey, hey, - are you are you OK? - I'm not OK! Because everything is just falling apart: My journalism career, this this Wade stuff, me and Spencer All right, OK.
Sweetheart, you've been going through a lot.
It's gonna be OK, and whatever you and Spencer are going through, it's just an adjustment.
You guys are gonna make it through.
Hey, you know what? Look, let's go for a ride, all right? Now, I can't do anything about the Spence thing, but but we can definitely do something about this Wade.
If you don't feel comfortable playing with Wade and you choose to sit out, I support that.
Yeah, me, too.
Someone needs to teach him a lesson.
I'mma ride it out.
I've got other teammates I need to show up for.
How's Liv taking all of this? Think Liv needs some space.
Maybe I do, too.
I just don't want her feeling like she needs to compromise what's important to her to be in a relationship with me.
- Hmm.
- Neither of you should.
I need some good news.
What's up with you, Ma? How's, uh Mr.
Carter? - Is he gonna propose? - Nice work, man.
- Oh! Oh! - Hey, hey, hey.
All right, I'mma chill.
I'mma chill.
I'mma leave you alone.
Wait, Spencer, wait.
Hold on.
About Olivia, you've always known your dream, son.
She's just figuring out hers.
But the question is can you give her time and space to figure out how to do it? I guess we've both got decisions to make.
I was, uh, starting to think you were avoiding me.
Heard about Wade, you getting and losing your starting position.
I just thought you could use a friend.
You know, I never imagined starting my freshman year? Heh! I mean, God, I was just glad to have a spot on the bench.
Well, today the the unimaginable was put within reach.
For a few hours, yeah.
And now I want it, Layla.
I want to lead this team.
I I want to be QB1 now, not 3 years from now, but it's Wade's team.
Jordan, you work your ass off and your coach sees that.
Your time's gonna come again, and now, when it does, you'll you'll be ready.
Yes, the swatting was a horrible lapse in judgment, but - we're just talking about a prank gone wrong.
- Prank gone wr the cops had their guns pointed at a room full of almost all black kids, - two of which are from your team.
- Come on.
This is not about race.
He says, from the comfort of his own white privilege.
I took this meeting as a courtesy, Billy.
You took this meeting outta guilt.
You knew you shouldn't have played Wade after everything he did.
That boy is a ticking time bomb, and if he continues to go unchecked, he's gonna put the rest of your team in danger, including my boys, and I can't have that.
If you'll excuse me, I have a game to prepare for.
Are you aware that Wade bullied one of his teammates so bad in high school that he tried to commit suicide? Multiple times.
Wade's parents paid for their silence.
That's why Wade swatted us.
He's scared that I'm gonna expose that, which I still plan on doing, but it's funny how easily I was able to dig up stuff that happened over 4 years ago, and then somehow this university was just totally unaware.
Yeah, that makes you wonder how much you and this administration have overlooked for the sake of this program.
My daughter's not the only one that's gonna keep digging and digging.
I'mma tell others who do it, too, and you can bet they're gonna keep breathing right on down your neck until Wade is officially off this team.
No need.
You're right.
I have to look out for the other boys on my team.
Listen up, listen up! Homecoming against Coastal! Doesn't get much better than that, right? - Yeah! - Hell yeah! All right, one quick announcement Wade's benched, Baker's on QB 1.
Let's go! OK, here we go! Let's go! Let's get it! You want this? Welcome, everyone, to homecoming.
With an undefeated record of 6 wins and no losses, this is - All right.
- Your Golden Angeles Condors.
Let's go get it! Let's go get it! 50's the mike, 50's the mike.
Down, set! On 60! Wide, set-set! Jordan Baker with a 50-yard bomb Touchdown! Golden Angeles strikes first, 7-nothing! Baker throws a slant across the middle, - but it's dropped by Spencer James! - Come on! You're better than that, Spence! - Take the shot! - Come on, Spence.
You got this.
Down, set.
Ready Spence! Get off the line.
Ready hut! Baker hits Matthews in stride for a 70-yard touchdown! What a throw! - Whoo-hoo-hoo! - Golden Angeles is up 14-nothing! Spence! Spence! What are you doing? - I got you, I got you.
- All right.
Come on, man.
No, no, no, no! Baker scampers to the pylon with only a few seconds remaining.
Touchdown! Golden Angeles is up 20-0 as we break for halftime.
- It was all right? - Looks good, yeah.
Keep this moving, this A-team.
Let's go.
- Get in the end zone again.
Let's go.
- Boy, - you are straight cookin' out there, man! - Yeah.
I'm playing like straight trash, but you got it.
Does it have anything to do with my sister not showing up? Yeah, well, that sneaky bitch is really good at wrecking careers.
What you say? I said that sneaky bitch is really good at wrecking Oh! We gotta go, man.
Second half's about to start.
Come on, come on! - Hey.
- Hey.
- I thought you weren't coming.
- I was listening in the car.
Spencer's struggling.
I couldn't not support him.
Yeah, yeah.
Um, listen, what is your read on Garrett? That he can't be trusted - and he's hiding something.
- Mm-hmm.
You feel that way, too, huh? Hey, they're back.
All right, fellas.
- Jordan, all good? - Yeah.
- What's up with the glove? - Nothing.
Just, uh Better grip.
Let's get in the end zone.
- Hey, bro.
- Hey.
- You've gotta - I got this one, Kenny.
At the beginning of the season, I didn't see the magic But you proved me wrong.
Time to step up again, son.
Pick it up this half now, all right? Bet.
I got you, Coach.
All right, let's go! Let's go! Coastal is down 20-0 as we start up the third quarter.
Come on.
Come on, D.
, come on, D.
Hut! Burke takes it up the middle and bounces to the outside for a 60-yard score, - finally putting them on the board.
- Yeah! Golden Angeles 20, Coastal 7.
Down, set! Yo, kill, kill, kill! Check laser! Check laser! Looks like Baker's calling an audible.
Whoa, whoa, what are you doing? What's he doing? - I don't know, I don't know.
- Wide, 80! Wide and set! OK! Come on! Now go! Let's go! Golden Angeles strikes back, increasing their lead, - 27-7! - Down, set! - Come on, Jordan! - All right, J.
! Wide and set! Baker slides to his left, but the ball slips out! - Yeah! - He fumbles! JJ Parker scoops it up and there's nothing but daylight.
- Touchdown! - Yeah! Whoo! Hey, dude Jordan was throwing the ball all over the field the first half, yeah? - Yeah.
- In the second, he's thrown what, like, like, - 3 passes? - You think he's injured? - You don't? - Something I should know, gentlemen? Uh Look, they they can't stop the run game.
We keep running, we control the clock, we take the lead, and we keep the ball away from J.
and Spence.
Good call, Adams.
In a surprising turn of events, Coastal has kept the ball for most of the second half and now leads the game, 31-27.
Break! Yo, we've been on the sidelines a long time.
It don't matter.
We got 18 seconds left and maybe two plays? Let's bring this home, man.
Golden Angeles have no timeouts and will need a small miracle to win this game.
Spencer James takes the draw - and bounces outside! - Go outta bounds, go outta bounds, go outta bounds! Fakes going out of bounds and picks up an additional 15 yards! Unbelievable! Huge risk, but heh! This kid is something else.
Last play of the game.
- Everything's on the line.
- Get back, get back.
- 49's the mike! 49's the mike! Here we go! - JJ! Get on Spencer! 6 seconds, Spencer, 6 seconds! All right, J.
! Wide 8, hut! It's a blitz! Baker's in trouble! Pick him up! Pick him up! Baker's flushed out of the pocket and forced to throw with his left hand to Spencer James, who makes an amazing catch and sprints his way into the end zone for the winning score! The Condors soar to victory! Jordan Baker to Spencer James! True freshman to true freshman! So how's the hand? How did you know? Uh, I was pretty much only focused on one player the entire game, - and it was kinda hard to miss.
- Yeah.
Plus you, um, you threw the game-winning touchdown with your left hand.
Didn't make sense at the time.
- What happened? - Oh, Wade happened, or, actually, my fist to his chin happened, so Mmm, nice.
Look at you.
Tough guy.
- Jordan.
- Hey.
Tell me you don't feel it.
I mean, it's just the two of us.
In this moment, tell me.
Layla, tell me I'm crazy.
You're not crazy.
- Sorry! Sorry.
- No, no, no.
It's it's worth it.
Um, Jordan, wait.
We, um, we can't.
We we can't? We most certainly can.
- We just did.
- You just broke up with Simone, and I was one of her bridesmaids.
Yeah, for a wedding that never happened.
- Jordan.
- OK, all right, just Just answer me this honestly.
Do you have feelings for me? Yes.
Then I will wait because you cannot resist me forever.
Excuse me? But it'll be fun to watch you try.
Come in.
Great adjustments in the second half.
Sorry about the end result.
It's not your fault.
Spencer James made one hell of a play.
- Yeah.
- But you kept us in the game.
You made it close.
Uh, listen, coaching staff is going out for drinks.
Do you want to tag along? We're talking next week's game plan.
- Uh, yeah.
Yeah, yeah, absolutely.
- Great.
Since you're underage, you're driving this time.
Yes, sir.
Let's go.
Oh, I think it's clear we don't win today without this duo.
They're the future of Golden Angeles, and that starts today! - Ha ha ha! - Yes! Let's celebrate.
I'm gonna make some popcorn.
- Right? - Ha! Oh, OK, um, isn't exactly how I imagined doing this, but I'm glad the boys are here.
- We weren't missing this.
- Shut up.
Um I had a whole speech planned.
I even have Freddie Jackson's "You Are My Lady" cued up.
I do love me some Freddie Jackson.
And I love me some you.
Baby, if you don't want to leave L.
, it's cool.
I have no intentions of having a long-distance marriage.
What happened to the bro confidentiality? - Dillon happened.
- Oh, you It's all right.
It's all right.
You can get him back when he and I move to Oakland.
- You're gonna move to Oakland with me? - I'm gonna move to Oakland.
- Can you please propose to her now? - Shut up.
Ha ha! My bad.
Um This is for you.
Grace James Will you marry me? Yes.
I love you so much.
I love you, too.
Ah! - Hey, hey.
- Oh! What are you doing? Uh, just, uh, looking after my boys.
Wade's off the team.
What more do you want? Well, I'm trying to protect 'em from Garrett.
- I don't trust him.
- Based on what, Billy? Uh, my instinct and your daughter's.
What is so wrong with wanting to look out for Jordan and Spence? Are you, though? Or are you looking out for yourself? I'm trying to give them the best D1 experience possible.
Spencer and Jordan just became full-time starters and you want to blow that up? For for what? Or is that you just can't handle not being the most important coach in their lives? Wade? Don't worry.
I come in peace.
I'm not worried at all.
There's one thing I learned today, and it's that you Bakers, well, you're - Resilient.
- Good for you.
I heard you been asking around about Garrett.
If you want Garrett, I can hand him to you.
Why would I believe anything you tell me about him? 'Cause I have the receipts.
Look, I have nothing left to lose, OK? It's my senior year, my Heisman hopes are gone, and possibly my NFL career.
If I'm going down in flames It's not gonna be alone.
We're not going on our trip, are we? A lot is changing in my life now, for the better.
I got a future I'm excited about, and I need to keep everything about me looking forward, no matter how scary a choice that might be.
And you can't do that with me.
I'm sorry, but I just I don't think that us falling back on what's familiar is the right move for either of us.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Thanks for coming on such short notice.
- Yeah, of course.
- No Erin? - No, not today.
Why? Um, I just assumed when you said you wanted to run something by me last week that it was maybe, like, a Proposal thing? - Not yet, but this, uh, this is about a big change.
- Mm-hmm.
I'm retiring and, uh, and I am ready to hand over the day-to-day operations of my label.
Um, wow.
Dad, this is wow, this is awesome.
Um, I always assumed, as I grew Formonica Records, that we'd be, like, real competitors one day, but honestly, merging both of our sounds under Keating Records just makes sense.
Um, yeah, I mean, I'm not gonna let you down.
- This - Wait.
Uh, you want the label? I thought you were adamant about forging your own path on your label.
Yeah, that was when I was on my indie tip, but I'm expanding and you helped me expand and I'm I'm building an empire.
You, um You didn't call me here to, uh, to hand it to me, did you? - Look, Layla, honey, I'm sorry.
It's - No.
Uh, then who? It's my protégé.
Um, he's a lot like I was back in the day brains, talent, and look, even better, he's a friend of yours.
- Clay.
- Layla.
Thanks again for the opportunity, Mr.
I won't let you down.
What's the word, Doc? - It's definitely broken.
- Yeah.
- See here? - Yeah.
Hey, um, how long am I out? About 6 to 8 weeks.
I just had the best game of my college career.
Jordan and I both made first team.
None of that felt right without you.
- I missed you.
- I missed you, too.
Look, if space is what you want, then I'll give it.
I won't like it, but I'll do it.
But if you want to fight for us, which is what I want, then I'm here to put in the work, Liv.
Full honesty, cards on the table all the time because nothing means more to me than you Than you and what we're building.
I really hope you mean that.
Of course I do.
Why? 'Cause I wanted to be the first person to tell you that I'm breaking a story on Coach Garrett.
My coach? The man who just put his arms around me and Jordan on national TV and called us the future of G.
football? He has got some serious skeletons in his closet, and from what I'm hearing, it's bad.
This is my future, Liv.
And mine.
I can't miss out on another story of this magnitude, Spencer.
So what does this mean for us? Greg, move your head!
