  • Quotes (10)

    • Tim: Waste of friggin’ time, huh? Lyla: Look, I know you hate me right now, and I understand Tim: I don’t hate you, Lyla. It’d be a lot easier if I did. Lyla: I don’t know how to talk to you when you’re like this. I mean, God it’s not even 7 o’clock and you can barely stand. You can blame me if you want, Tim. You can blame the whole world for all I care, but if you think being drunk all the time is gonna make this any easier, you’re wrong. It’s not cool or charming. It’s just pathetic and gross and I feel sorry for you. I really do. Tim: Lyla.

    • Smash: Look, no disrespect, sir. I just want to say flat out. If you got a list, I don’t just want to be on it. I want to be number one. Grady: Well I hope you can play as good as you talk. Now’s your time, son. Show me what you got. Smash: Thank You. (shakes Grady’s hand)

    • Mindy: It’s Homecoming, everybody’s gonna be at the dance. Can’t fight tradition sweetheart, not here. Billy: Then we’ll start a new one. Tyra: Exactly, the anti-Homecoming. Mindy: Uh-huh Tyra: Mm-hmm Mindy: We gotta go. You’re too young to be in here anyway. Tyra: Whatever. Billy: Hey, Clear eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose……Damn.

    • Billy: Here (tosses a beer can to Tim) Tim: I’m good. (tosses the beer can back to Billy) Billy: Dude, night cap, Sportscenter. Tim: I quit. Billy: You quit? (scoffs) Since when? Tim: Since now Billy: (laughing) Sure you did.

    • Jason: So, uh, do you and Timmy see a lot of each other now? Lyla: What do you mean? Jason: I don’t know like in school or in practice, or around? Lyla: No, not really. Pretty much the same amount.

    Trivia (3)

    • In the scene where Tyra and Billy are moving the alcohol around getting ready for the party it is sunny, clearly daytime. When Billy runs into the RV and switches on the radio to listen to the beginning of the homecoming game they quickly switch to the football field where it is dark out.

    • “Remember Me as a Time of Day” by Explosions in the Sky This song is incorrectly credited on the Closed Caption of every FNL episode. The theme song is an original recording created for the show and and can not be found on any of Explosions in the Sky’s albums or the Friday Night Lights Movie soundtrack.

    • The team Dillon played in this episode is the Leander Lions from Leander, TX in real life. Leander is a suburb of Austin similar to Pflugerville, where the show is shot/based. Leander and Pflugerville are both in district 14-5A and play each other every year.

    • Landry tells Matt Saracen to have the Eye of the Tiger. Landry is alluding to the phrase used in the Rocky movies that means to be focused and aggressive. It is also a song recorded by the group Survivor and the song was recorded for the Rocky movies starring Sylvester Stallone.
