  • Shoot the ball, Thomas!

    Introduces the viewer to autism and how it affects others. Reeves is sort of forced to take an autistic boy on his basketball team and hates it, feeling he has enough head cases, and better the devils he knows than the one he doesn\'t know. Almost in spite of himself, Reeves gets through to the kid and realizes that working with him one on one works best. Funniest moment is when the team discovers their new mascot costume (a peanut?), gets inspired to blow out their opponent, and the autistic boy decides to put on a \'halftime show\' with it.
