THE TAYLORS You know, you and I have the exact same amount of experience being parents. We’ve been doing this job the same number of years and months and days as each other. And the truth of it is that we just don’t have any control. You know, for the most part we’re just winging it. And, you know, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do in this situation. But I’ll tell you what, the most important thing to me is that my daughter be able to talk to me. A girl is entitled to that with her mother. My mother used to tell me that I was gonna hell if a guy ever even touched me. And you know that didn’t work. I’m sure as hell not gonna do that to Julie. And we raised a smart, responsible moral girl. And I have faith in us. And I have faith in her. Now we just gotta let her go.
Tami: Hey, Honey… what do you think Julie would do if she got pregnant? Coach: What!?!? Tami: She’s not pregnant… she’s not pregnant… she’s not pregnant. But, what do you think she would do? Coach: What are you doing? Tami: I mean would she talk to us? She would talk to us, wouldn’t she? Coach: Oh, Baby… it’s 3:00 in the morning. I don’t want to talk about Julie and having a hypothetical pregnancy… are you crazy? That’s just wrong! Tami: Honey… we’re both having nightmares. Coach: Well don’t do that… come to bed. Come to bed. Come… y'all come to bed.
Like duh, they have probably the most realistic marriage on TV. They have problems that a lot of other parents do, normal people problems. Problems that aren’t infidelity or drug related or any of the wacky things some shows come up with. They’ve been through a lot but they are a strong couple that can get through anything. They actually remind me of my parents sometimes. Sometimes they’ll have stupid fights. Sometimes they’ll have big huge fights. But they always love each other.
Tami: I’m an idiot. Eric: No you’re not. Tami: I should never have picked this fight. Eric: Yes, Babe… you should have. Tami: Oh, Hon… you don’t even mean that I don’t think. I think you thought it was a bad idea this whole time. Eric: That’s not true… I never said that. That’s not what I thought. I think it’s obvious that you’re right and they’re wrong… period. Tami: Really? Eric: Damn right… do you think we need a Jumbotron? We don’t need a Jumbotron! Tami: Of course we don’t need a Jumbotron. Eric: We need more teachers. Tami: Of course we do. Eric: You’re right… they’re wrong. Tami: Mmhm… It doesn’t matter, thought, ‘cause I’m gonna lose tomorrow. Eric: Okay yeah… they’re gonna get the Jumbotron and in that sense you lose tomorrow… but you stood up for what you believed in… and in that sense, you win tomorrow. Tami: Okay. Eric: Hey… you can at least make them feel a little guilty about their big ole stupid Jumbotron.
