got through to the kids today.

You know,

they're really juiced.

Oh, thanks. They were- They were great.

Well, you're welcome.

Thank you.

So, is the conversation over?

You mean 'cause neither of us

are speaking?


No. Yeah, I also-

I came back because I just-

I wanted to ask you if I could

ask you out sometime.


I won't be bringing the kids.



- Hike.

- Get him! Get him!

- Oh!

- All right, good "D." Good "D."

I know why she wouldn't go out with me.

She thinks I'm not in her class.

- She said that?

- No. I could see it on her face.

- "Like I would really date a schoolteacher. "

- Ouch.

Down, set, hike.

Yeah, go, go, go!

Ben, what are you doing? It's two-hand touch.

You were down back there.

And back there and back there.

What's the matter with you?

Come on, guys.

Sorry. Sorry, guys.

All right, Lindsey,

so what's the matter with this one?

He's not smart?

He's not attractive?

He was.

It's just, you know-

- I don't know. It's hopeless.

- Oh, boy, here we go.

You're right, I'm an idiot.

I'm about to turn 20-10...

and the dating market is,

shall we say, bearish.

And instead of becoming more open

and available, I'm becoming less open.

Come on, people.

Talking isn't burning calories.

Let's go. Start pedaling.

Come on.

Maybe you should date

a different kind of guy.

Why? What do you mean?

Well, all the guys you date are sharp

and competitive and successful.

- It's like youre dating yourself.

- Ding, ding, ding.

Wh-What's wrong

with the schoolteacher?

- Well-

- He's a schoolteacher.

Which means he has

a small... income.

All right, people, let's shut your piehole

and speed it back up. Come on!

- Come on!

- Die, you Nazi spin-b*tch.

Hey! Go, run a post. Go!


Who did that?

That's it.

You're coming with me, mister.

What do you think,

this is your own private playground?

Get in here.

Thanks, man.

I owe you one.

Go ahead.

Hey, Ben, are you going

to watch the Celtics later?

Uh, I don't know.

You know, there are other sports

besides baseball.

I would debate you, Ed, but that would only

lead to me being dragged away in handcuffs.

Hey, speaking of baseball, Ben, wanna help me

coach the J. V. team this year?

Why? You're doing a great job.

I mean, you cant just go by wins and losses.

Aw, come on, Ben.

The kids listen to you.

I think it's going good

the way it is, you know?

You coach the team,

and I help out whenever I can.

Then, if I don't make it or-

Hey, Rita, when did I get this message

from Lindsey Meeks?

A tip might be where it says

"Time Called: 2:30."

Come on, pull!

So, do you think it'll be a problem
