Episode Summary

EDIT
Cliff's college track coach recruits him to join the members of his old mile relay team for a grudge match against the Norton University team, who handed Cliff the only defeat of his career. Cliff made up a twenty-yard deficit on his anchor leg, but Norton's Tailwind Turner bumped him across the track and kept him from passing. Cliff struggles in his training and concludes that he cannot get in shape in time for the race. He changes his mind after Turner calls him up and taunts him. Cliff gets the baton with the lead, and gets revenge on Tailwind by bumping him to prevent him from passing. The race ends in a tie. An exhausted Cliff enjoys the praise of his family, but wonders if he'll ever be able to move again.moreless

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Coach Scott tells Cliff that the "masters track meet" will be held at the Meadowlands. The Meadowlands is an sports district in East Rutherford, New Jersey, that includes an outdoor NFL football stadium (for the New York Jets and Giants) and an indoor facility primarily used for NBA basketball's New Jersey Nets. Since the clips of the race in this episode were indoors, it should be inferred that it was held in the basketball arena and had been converted for Track.
