The Comebacks

Synopsis: Lambeau Fields lives a middle-class lifestyle in America along with his wife, Barb, and a gorgeous daughter, Michelle, who he has brought up as a son. Lambeau is a failure and has virtually given up on his career as a football coach. Then his friend, Freddie Wiseman, encourages him to re-enter this field, and he does so by re-locating to Plainfolk in Texas and joins the Heartland State University. It is here he will meet some of the most pathetic players, and quite disillusioned he goes about to find new-comers. He finds a kicker in Jasminder Featherfoot, provided of course, he keeps her involvement secret from the rest of her family. Then he finds Lance Truman, whose drag queen dad has brought him up more like a tom-girl. With these additions and others Lambeau sets forth to include his team in the next Super...Er...Toilet Bowl 2 series, and it is here that he will find that Lance fumbles a lot; Barb is not quite faithful as she seems; he will soon be in jail for Indecent Exposure; Mi

Nothing is more inspiring

Than the tale of a sports hero.

But this story is

about the other guy...

The LOSER.

And as you'll see,

even failure has its champion.

His name?

Lambeau Fields.

To me, he's a hero,

An inspiration and a friend.

To the rest of the world,

He's the worst coach

in the history of sports.

Hey, Bill!

Buckner!

What?

What's a six-Letter word

For a tropical fruit?

Not now.

I'm thinking

it might be "banana"!

Zip it. Be quiet.

Could be "papaya"!

Fields, this is the World Series, man-

Are you crazy?

Slow roller down to first.

It gets through Buckner's legs!

The Mets win!

The Mets win!

It's "Papaya. "

Let's go!

Whoa!

That's on me.

Marco, come here.

Go tell Zidane, tell him I said...

Go tell him I said that.

Ta mere est une

vielle... terroriste.

I don't remember

saying "Chain-Smoking. "

Being labeled the biggest

loser in the history of mankind

Finally got

to old Coach Fields,

And he hit rock bottom.

Coach?

Freddie.

Good to see you.

My God,

I hardly recognized you.

I bought a new hat.

Nice.

It's good to see you, buddy.

I got a proposition for you.

All right.

Let's walk and talk.

I'm late for work.

Yeah.

Hey, Manuel, Javier,

Sanchez, Cornelio, new guy.

Hola, Coach.

They ride the horses.

Coach wasn't exactly coaching anymore.

His job was to help facilitate

The continuation of the noble

Seabiscuit lineage.

It was about helping out

Mother Nature.

To draw forth

the building blocks

Of the champion D.N.A. Which-

Aw, hell.

He was yanking off horses.

So, tell me about

this big offer of yours.

There's this small college

in Plainfolk, Texas-

Heartland State University.

It's got a beautiful campus

and awesome athletic program.

They need

a new head football coach.

Me go back to coaching?

Oh. Sorry.

Okay.

Listen, Coach...

You and me we've been

through wars together, right?

And no matter what anybody says,

I mean, you're one

of the best leaders ever.

It's time for you

to get back into coaching.

I appreciate it,

But I'm happy here.

For once in my life,

I'm proud of what I'm doing.

I said no!

No means no!

You know what no means.

Aah! You just finish yourself.

Aah!

Thanks anyway, buddy.

Good to see ya.

Uh, I shouldn't, 'cause,

you know...

I got a terrible cold.

Coming up on Fox Sports News,

Maria Sharapova battles

The mighty Venus Williams

at the Australian Open.

Here, Maria!

Smile! - Right here!

WOMAN:

Coach?

There you are.

Is something wrong?

Freddie Wiseman

came to see me today.

Told me about a coaching job.

College football.

But I said no.

I told him I'm out.

Sweetie...

Are you sure?

I mean, coaching

is in your blood.

Like-Like hepatitis C or...

or traces of cocaine.

I don't know, Barb.

It would mean moving again.

You know, this house

is perfect for us.

Look at this den.

It's already filled

With sports memorabilia

and trophies.

You know,

it's not too late

For you to get

a trophy of your own.

That'd be something, wouldn't it?

Oh, come on.

Coaching is

a Fields family tradition

Like cockfighting

or identity theft.

That's true.

Maybe I will

give it another shot.

Yeah! You can't keep a legend

In the shadows for long.

Set!

Hut!

Honey...

Honey, honey,

Honey, um...

Just promise me that you

won't get so consumed by winning

That you completely forget

about this family.

What?!

Family comes first.

You know that.

Really?

And how many of Michelle's

Gymnastics meets

have you been to?

Michelle?

Your daughter.

Oh, of course, Michelle.

What the hell was that?

Your son.

Scruffy!

Jeffrey!
