Come on, Dougie.

I got it, Dad.

Catch it closer to your body.

That's it.

That's okay.

We'll try again.

That's the one, Dougie.

I got the ball.

Yeah, now throw it back to me.

I got the ball!

Who's gonna be in the big leagues, Dougie?

I'm gonna play baseball.

Pow! You see that?

Tell Mom what you're gonna do.

What are you gonna play?

I'm gonna play big baseball.

And you're gonna be the one, kiddo.

That's great, honey.

I wanna throw the ball.

Come on, Dougie.

Come back over here.

I want you to stay there.

I'll stay here.

You throw me the ball.

It went all the Way over there.

That's wonderful.

Now throw it back.

I want...

- I got the bat, Mom!

- Okay, Watch this.

Hold tight.

Keep your eye on the ball.

That's it.

I don't believe it.

Swing, batter, batter, batter.

Swing the bat.

Throw the ball!

Swing the bat.


Here, bat the ball again.

Good one!

- I hit the ball.

- You hit the ball, slugger.

I hit the ball!

Good one, Dougie!

Low and inside.

Mendez is one of the league's

great southpaws.

More sporadic today.

Last time these two teams met,

he threw a perfect game.

Here's the pitch.


I don't know about that.

I thought that was a little high.

I think Gordon did, too.

The crowd's not happy with that one,

but Gordon's not contesting.

He's waiting for the big one.


It's going!

It's going!

IT'S gone!

Guess who?


What is this?

- Are you gonna keep this stupid thing?

- Yeah.

- Why?

- Come here.

For this.

Stop it.

It tickles.

Oh, hey, I got you something.


What is it?

Open it.

A bat?

Yeah, but look at what it says.

"Home Run 100, Doug Gordon."

It must mean a lot to you.

It does.

That's Why I gave it to you.


Well, all I've got for you

is some good news.

What, you're not gonna leave me alone

this Weekend?

No, but you're off the hook tonight.

Dinner's canceled.

My dad had to fly off to Tokyo last minute.

At least I could use the extra time.

I could put it to some studying.

You still cramming?

Do you have any idea

how many bones there are

in a single human hand?

No, Dr. Gordon.

Why don't you tell our studio audience

and all our friends at home.

How many bones are there?

Very funny.

Here we are today with Dr. Gordon,

preeminent sports physician

and doctor to the stars.

Dr. Gordon, is it true that

your lovely girlfriend Laura

was instrumental

in your early success as a student

of sports medicine?

Well, I would have to say it was more

her unwavering loyalty,

her understanding, and, of course,

her sexual prowess.



We're in a library.

There's nobody here.

Come on, nobody's gonna see us.

I'm not gonna see you again.

It'll be exciting.

Come on.

We never have any time alone.


I'm sorry.


It's okay.

I overreacted a little.

Well, I better get going.

I've got a long drive ahead of me.


Call you later, okay?


- Good luck with your interview.

- Thanks.

I'll call you as soon as I get there.

Hey, Dougie!

Where you been?

I was in the library.

Oh, yeah.

What's that?

You see that big building over there?

It's got, like, books inside it.

And people go there and they read.

Oh, yeah, I think I've been there

once or twice.

So, what's up, bud?

No big date tonight?

No, not for this guy.

Although Jay and Dean called.

They're throwing a big party

at the beach tonight.

- You're gonna have to tell me all about it.

- Oh, come on.

- The whole team's gonna be there.

- I can't.

Why? Laura have other plans

for you tonight?

No. Actually she's away

for a couple days.

All right.

So you're a free man.

No, man, I can't.

I got tons of studying I have to do.

And I promised my mom

I'd go outwith her tonight.

Now it's your mother?

Look, man, she's not doing too good

since my dad died.

You know?

I'm sorry, man.

I forget sometimes.

- You all right?

- Yeah. It's cool.

- It's cool.

- All right.

Look, it's early yet, all right?

We Walk in and out, say hello.

Ten minutes, that's all I ask of you.

- I can't.

- Oh, come on!

Come on.

Ten minutes.

Please. We Walk in and out.

Well, you've been Working

your ass off.

- All right. Ten minutes.

- Yeah?

- Ten. That's it.

- Sure?

- Okay? I'm positive.

- All right. Good.

- All right.

- See you then?

- See you then.

- All right.

Hey, Doug! Yeah!


Hey, Doug, did Laura find you?

Yeah, I was in the library.

Yeah, can you believe that?

Just like that she gets

a call for Stanford.

One minute they're being aloof.

And the next thing,

they want you to drop everything.

Don't they realize we have lives, too?

I think it's a really big pain in the...


Hey, thanks for getting me

into Lesher's class.

- I appreciate it.

- No problem.

It'll be nice to have you in the class.

Just make sure you know the pulmonary

and cardiovascular systems,

'cause Lesher can be a real hard ass.

Did he tell you We're dissecting

a cadaver next Week?

I can't wait.

- Hey, what are you drinking?

- Cuba libre.

- Beer's over there.

- I'll see you later.

- I'll see you later.

- Nice, dude.

Here he is, folks.

This is Doug Gordon.

He is the breaker of records

and hearts alike.

- Cocktail?

- No, thanks.

You know we have a game tomorrow.


Yes, but tomorrow

is a very long Way away.


I want you to gaze before you, Doug.

I want you to tell me what you see.
