To Meg's utter amazement she is asked to dance by Bandstand regular Jimmy Riley, before he is whisked away by another regular Teresa. J.J. quietly rejoins the football team. While Henry's son Sam earns a track scholarship to almost-all-white East Catholic High. Jack invites Sam to dinner to meet J.J., seeing that they're both now on the track team. Meg is informed by Teresa to be wary of Jimmy Riley. J.J. gets upset when he finds out Beth applied to Stanford. Helen tries to find a class that will fit her busy schedule at Temple. A rumor starts circulating about Meg and Jimmy Riley "doing it", which Roxanne thinks is great,because it means Meg's important now.

While J.J. dominates the competition in his return to the gridiron.moreless

      • Will: So anything could happen.
        Helen: That's true.
        Will: So someday there might be satellites with bombs and lasers?
        Helen: There might be. And there might not be. Anything could happen.
        Will: I know, that's what's so scary.
        Helen: That's what's so exciting. Come here. Come sit with me. Come up here. It's a big adventure. Like the first time you rode the roller coaster at Willow Grove. You were so excited. Remember what it was like when the car was going up? And you kept asking, "What's it gonna feel like when we go down? How fast are we gonna go?" You were so excited. Because you didn't know what was gonna happen. Well, that's what the future's like. Except there are no tracks. That's what makes it an adventure.
