Happy birthday, Hopey.

Nice. Beautiful. One more.

Show me your somersault.


- Climb the wall.

- Almost.

Look, she's doing a handstand.

Come on!

That's it, all the way! Come on!


- Huggie, Dad.

- Come here. That's good for a huggie.

Just like that. Okay.

Let's see those jumps again, the split up.

Good. Good! Much better.

Future champion.

Here's the big moment.

It's all about the dismount. Ready?

No, no, no, no, no.

Oh! Good. Oh!

- I'm a champion.

- You're darn right, you are. Try it again.

Point the toes. Chin up. Tight, tight.

Show how beautiful and talented you are.

Perfect hand.

Are those b*obs coming in? No b*obs!

I like that.


- To gold in Rome! Whoo!

- Gold in Rome!


I just marvel every time

I see Hope Ann Greggory perform.

At 17, she is the epitome

of power and grace.

Coach Pavleck says

she is the hardest worker on the team.

Mother! Mother!

This is a potentially career-ending injury.


- I don't want that. I don't want that.

- She said no.

No wheelchair. She's determined

to get off on her own power.

Wait. Hold on, Dominique.

I am now getting word Greggory is

going to attempt the uneven bars.

Oh, my God!

- This is truly inspirational.

- It really is.

This, ladies

and gentlemen, is quite remarkable.

You are star.

You will make me so proud.

Thousands of hours

training together

back at that little gym in Amherst, Ohio.

This is their moment.


This is the Amherst Angel's

strongest event

and she's going to need a 9.7 or higher

to take the medal away from those Russians.

She needs to pull off this Jaeger.

Nearly flawless, nearly flawless.

Beautiful handstand half.

Now she's preparing

for her full-end dismount.

This is a tough dismount for her.

She needs to stick this landing.

- This is really tough to watch.

- Here it comes. Full twist.

- Oh! On one leg!

- Do you believe in miracles?

You do now!

The Amherst Angel has stuck the landing.


Hopey! What do you want for lunch?

Grilled cheese and tomato!

No crust!

- 9.8!

- Wow!

She's done the impossible!

This is absolutely incredible, Dominique!


she could never write this...

Ladies and gentlemen,

please stand for

the Chinese national anthem.


Hopey? Your grilled cheese is ready.

What? No, I said I wanted Hamburger Helper!

Where the f*** did you get grilled cheese?

Just forget it, Dad.

I'm gonna go to Sbarro.

Mountain Dew, large.

- Diet?

- Did I say diet?

Sorry. Most girls order diet.

- Okay. That comes to $9.30.

- Oh, no, it doesn't.

Oh, no, no, no. She's on the house.

- Don't you know who this is?

- You tell him, Tony.

- Check the wall, son.

- Yeah. Check the wall, son.

Oh, you used to be way skinnier.

Hey, Hope.

- Take these.

- Okay.

- Any, uh, new stuff in the back?

- Yeah, totally.

It's supposed to be bomb-ass sh*t.

He said it was government grade.

I don't know if that means

that the government grows it,

or maybe they just grade it?

Stop you right there.

Do not talk about politics. It's crass.

You're gonna lose a lot of customers.

But you don't... You don't pay me.

Hey, John.

- Chair busted again, Davey?

- Yeah.


Here. Go get it fixed.

Thanks, Hope.

Oh, I like the new running sneakers,

they're very hip.

Well, they send me so frickin' many

for endorsements.

At some point, I'm gonna have to tell 'em

to back the f*** off.

I know it must get old for you,

but you lead such a glamorous life.

Hi, Doris!

Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh!

Hope Ann Greggory is here!

You gotta be f***ing kidding me.

Isn't that Maggie Townsend adorable?

She comes in here all the time

with your old Coach Pavleck.

OMG! Hope Ann Greggory.

I have been, like, praying that

we would run into each other. I'm Maggie.

Hope, this is Maggie. I'm surprised

you two haven't crossed paths.

Maggie reminds me so much of you

when you were younger.

Hey, Hope.

- Hi.

- It's, uh, me, Ben.

Ben Lawfort.

Uh, my dad co-owns the gym with Coach P.



Yeah. Uh, no one

really calls me that anymore.

Uh, in fact, you were

the only person that, that did.

Um, but, hey, I'm back in town.

- Graduated, finally.

- You look so different.

- Oh, really?

- But that's still there, so now I see it.

Yeah, well, anyway, uh,

I'm helping Coach P with Maggie here.

Coach was saying that, uh, she's trying

to get a hold of you. I don't know if...

- Did you just say you graduated?

- I did.

Aren't you, like, 12?

Uh, no. I was 12, uh, when I was 12.

Uh, I was 12 when you won

your first World Championship,

so maybe that was what you...

Isn't that funny?

Maggie just made it to the top five

of the World Championship.

I heard.

I, like, totally crushed it.

Miss Greggory, maybe we could

exchange phone numbers,

or something...

...and, uh, we could text or FaceTime,

or I don't know...


Can we talk a second?


Do you remember when you made

this for me, the first day of art class?

It was the greatest day of my life.

So, I'm beginning

with that positive affirmation.

Yeah. It was your idea

for a lame Father's Day art project.

Are you done "remenessing"

about homeschool?

- It's "reminiscing," sweetie.

- That's what I said.

A good use of a vocab word.

Come here, sit.

Standing, go, what?

My supervisor has had several complaints

that pieces of mail from my route
