The Fighting Irish

Jimmy (still sporting a shiner from their first date) asks Meg to be his partner on Bandstand. A Notre Dame recruiter is interested in J.J., but when J.J. doesn't show Jack will have to carry the ball for his son. Patty wants a new water heater and goes around timing everyone's showers to show they need one. Beth tries her best to get through to J.J., but he brushes her off and while Jack is meeting with the recruiter, he gets drunk with Tommy. Helen walks out on the doctor, when she firsts goes in about birth control. Meg thinks her and Jimmy are destined to be a real couple,but he says he only wants to be friends. Jack gives J.J. the cold shoulder over his blowing off the recruiting meeting. Helen returns to the doctor a second time and it goes much smoother. Things change at the big game, when the team needs a big play, J.J. fakes an injury, before scoring the game winning touchdown on the play Jack taught him.moreless
