  • Trivia

    • When Matt opens his locker he finds an envelope with money in it, we see the money very briefly. Next to the fact that it is white (not green), you can read the words '... use only' on the bill, probably from a sentence explaining the money is a prop.

    • The stadium the coaches looked at for the site of the game was really the new Round Rock ISD stadium (The "Palace on Parmer") in Round Rock, TX. The stadium is the home for Round Rock McNeil and Round Rock Westwood.

      The stadium is a popular Texas playoff site and hosted the biggest game in Texas in 2005, the 5A Division 1 State Championship between Euless Trinity and Converse Judson (28-14 Trinity).

    • The team Dillon played in this episode is the Bryan Vikings from Bryan, TX in real life.

      Bryan is in district 13-5A (Pflugerville is in district 14-5A). The game was the state semifinal game. In real life, teams from these two districts could only meet in the first round or the region championship.

  • Quotes

    • Vikings Coach: Furthermore, my boys could kick your boys' butts in an ice skating rink wearing nothing but socks if they had to. (Coach Taylor slowly starts to smile) So let me tell ya, if you want to go ahead and play on, on, on this field - Butch up, Sally, 'cause you got a game.

    • Coach Taylor: You look out here lately, looks like we're playing the damn Super Bowl.
      Coach Mac: Well, they're excited about it.
      Coach Taylor: Well, I'm glad their excited, I wish they were excited about winning as they are about making a buck.

    • Landry: Good Morning Tyra, How are you doing?
      Tyra: (pause)Yeah, I'm gonna go. I'll call you later (talking to Julie)

    • Landry: Tyra is that you, what are you doing here?
      Tyra: Nothing just wishing I could build a time machine and go back and shoot who ever it is that invented Algebra, that's for sure.
      Landry: Well, see that's kind of a Catch-22, though because in order to invent that time machine you may need to use Algebra.

    • Lyla: Great, you better be careful she's a good shot.
      Smash: What's that supposed to mean?
      Lyla: We went shooting yesterday, two girls packing heat.
      Smash: No, no, no…that's not a good idea.
      Lyla: What, why, God Smash you're not her father.
      Smash: Lyla, it's not about that, she's bi-polar.
      Lyla: What?
      Smash: Waverly's bi-polar and she's not taking her meds, which means, I don't know what that means but I'm damn sure she shouldn't be shooting guns.
      Lyla: I didn't know.
      Smash: Now you do.

    • Tami: Where would people park?
      Coach Taylor: I don't know.
      Tami: And how would you put lights in here?
      Coach Taylor: I don't know that either.
      Tami: Where would people pee?
      Coach Taylor: Well, I don't know, they can use cups for all I care. I-I don't know.

    • Lyla: Why haven't you called? It doesn't look like you're busy, it looks like you're watching TV. Listen I know it may be a lot to ask of you to call me so that I know if we are engaged or boyfriend and girlfriend or really good pals.
      Jason: Get off my back, Lyla. What do I have right now, huh? I got a girlfriend who cheated on me. I got parents that are breaking up because of some stupid lawsuit. I lost the Coach, lost the team, lost my friends, lost Quad Rugby. So I got nothing, so I'm sorry if I'm not being the perfect boyfriend right now but I got a lot more on my mind then powder puff and prom, and this cup is way too full; I'll spill it you know that.
      Lyla: (throws cups of water on Jason) No it's not too full.
      Jason: What the hell was that for?!
      Lyla: You think it's been easy for me helping you in and out of that chair.
      Jason: Well no one is holding a gun to your head.
      Lyla: I do it because I love you stupid, but now you're sitting here feeling sorry for yourself and acting like a jackass all the time. You wanna play Rugby find another team; you hate this lawsuit so much find a way to make it go away. Next time you want a glass of water, say please.

    • Billy: That kid calling you Daddy, yet?
      Tim: mm-mm, doesn't know anything about it.
      Billy: I might not have a PhD in stupid like you do, but I'm a tell you right now this is gonna turn out badly, hell is probably gonna end badly right around State.

    • Landry: Tyra, I'm so sorry, my car…what are you doing out here…what are you doing?
      Tyra: He tried to rape me. (crying and hugging Landry)

    • (tackles Matt Saracen and kisses him)
      Julie: I'll always love you no matter what happens.
