  • Trivia

    • Dillon played their first playoff game at home. In the top level of Texas HS football, it is very rare for a team to have a playoff game in it's home stadium.

    • The team Dillon played in this episode is the Round Rock McNeil Mustangs from Austin, TX in real life.

      McNeil is in the Round Rock Independent School District (Round Rock, TX) but is actually in north Austin. McNeil and Pflugerville are both in district 14-5A and play each other every year.

      Because McNeil and Pflugerville are in district - the only way for them to actually meet in the playoffs is in the Region Championship (4 games in) assuming both teams go into the same division in the playoffs.

  • Quotes

    • Female Reporter: So let me get this straight, Whites like Saracen make better quarterbacks because they are inherently smarter.
      Coach Mac: You wanna put it that way, you could. Now, I'm not saying that all Black guys are dumb, just saying they got diff…
      Coach Taylor: Mac, I need to talk to you.

    • Coach Mac: Smash for quarterback?
      Female Reporter: Yeah.
      Coach Mac: I believe Smash is better suited for the position he's in.
      Female Reporter: How do you mean?
      Coach Mac: Well, guys like Smash and Baxter and even Voodoo they got a natural gift for running the ball
      Female Reporter: All three are Black, are you saying this gift has something to do with their skin color?
      Coach Mac: What I'm saying Karen is and I'm saying in a good way, is that guys like Smash are--are fearless, they're dangerous. They're like a junkyard dogs. I mean, you want them carrying the ball. You want them tearing up turf out there.

    • Tim: Does anyone here know how to chop block?

    • Coach Mac: Well, all right. You're telling me that you think Matt Saracen has as much natural ability as a Smash?
      Coach Taylor: You know what I'm telling you, what I'm telling you is that it's not too damn smart to be making generalizations about people's abilities based on their color. Think about that. That's what I'm saying.
      Coach Mac: All right. What's done is done. No apologies gonna change that.
      Coach Taylor: I'm not making a request.

    • Smash: And you ain't gonna share?
      Waverly: I thought you were on a special diet?
      Smash: I am, no sweets, except for sweet chocolate.
      Waverly: Here you go, baby? (Waverly gives Smash a piece of chocolate cake)
      Smash: I wasn't talking about the cake. (Smash starts kissing Waverly)
      Waverly: Mmm, okay, enough. Enough.

    • (Tyra and Julie are walking down the hallway together)
      Tyra: A year of detention is preferable to Powderpuff. Okay, I don't need to spend a week watching Tim Riggins teaching Rally girls how to tackle. It's pathetic. Oh and then he has the gall to pick that bony little--
      Julie: Lyla!!
      Lyla: Hey guys. Hey, Tyra, my dad says your mom's doing really good on the job.

    • (Tim coaching his Powderpuff team)
      Tim: I'm starting to see a "W" in my eyes. Let's go!!

    • Coach Taylor: No, no, look at me. Please don't do this. Don't break our trust. Don't take our trust from us. Please.
      Julie: I'm sorry; today's just been really…really kind of a crappy day. Matt's been yelling at me all day about…stupid quarterback stuff.
      Coach Taylor: Matt Saracen's got you at quarterback? Wait honey. Hey, come here. What do you mean he's got you at quarterback?

    • (Game speeches before the Powderpuff game)
      Matt Saracen: No-no matter wh-what happens today. W-We're all gonna be winners.
      Tyra: Please.
      (Tim speaks to his team)
      Tim Riggins: We will not accept a loss. We will not accept it. One…Two…Three
      Team: Win!!

    • Coach Mac: What I perceive other then football is none of your business.
      Smash: Whoa, I'm just trying to have a dialogue.
      Coach Mac: Well, you save your dialoguing for your mommy.
      Smash: Now, wait a minute, you said--
      Coach Mac: No, you wait a minute son. You wait just a minute. I've been here for 27 years, and I am not about to be interrogated by some too big for his britches teenager, you got me.
      Smash: What the hell you mean too big for my britches, Mac? You the one saying--
      Coach Mac: This is done. This is over. I am done with this. I am done. Look, if I hear you whining or anybody else whining about this anymore. You're gonna be warming your ass on the bench Friday night, you got me.
      Smash: Oh, no, you can't do that.
      Coach Mac: Oh I can, yeah and I will. I'm tired of this crap.
