TV Show Meme: Episodes that make you cry [3/3]

Friday Night Lights → The Son (4x05)

I hate him. And I don’t, I don’t like hating people, but I just put all my hate on him so that I don’t have to hate anybody else. So that I can be a good person, you know, to my grandma, friends, to your daughter, and that’s all I wanna say. I just wanna tell him to his face that I hate him, but he doesn’t even have a face.


Favorite Male Characters (2/?)

Tim Riggins, Friday Night Lights

Well, I’m Buddy Garrity. I’ve owned businesses here in East Dillon for a long time. As you well know, Erica, you bought a Chevy Tahoe from me about three years ago. Sir, please, please. If you… if you don’t mind, please. I’ve known this young man since before he hit puberty. And this young man has done a lot of things wrong. I’ve seen him do a dozen things wrong, but let me tell you something right now. He is not a bad young man, and he’s certainly not a criminal. He doesn’t need to be in this system. He dated my daughter for years, and we took him in like family, so he’s like family to me. And I could tell you this kid right here has got more heart than almost any person I know. And I can promise you that when you let him out, he will have a full-time job working for me. And I can guarantee you that nothing like this will ever happen again. You have my word on that. It’s time for you to let Tim Riggins come home. Thank you.


Coach Taylor says turn off your damn cell phone

Theater chain Alamo Drafthouse has a history of doing entertaining PSAs to shame people into behaving properly—there’s a whole “Don’t Talk” subchannel on the company’s YouTube page. Considering the Drafthouse started in Austin, it’s almost surprising it took this long to connect its videos to the greatest show ever filmed in that city, Friday Night Lights. But it has happened, with Kyle Chandler donning his Panthers blue—hmm, wouldn’t he have stayed at East Dillon?—to try to make another one of his inspirational speeches. It doesn’t go well.

Don’t let coach down, y’all.
