The Game Plan

Synopsis: Joe Kingman is a huge football star. He's got women, money, and a good career. Everything is perfect for him. Then one day an 8 year old girl shows up at his door telling him that she's his daughter from a past relationship. Once he has proof that she is for a fact his, he tries but fails miserably at "parenting." From problems such as his super speedy car with no backseat, to leaving her in a bar at 3 am, he's got a lot to deal with. Eventually though, she gets him, (and his football team) wrapped around her finger. When she has a near-death experience and Joe finds out her mother died early that year, he wants her to move and live with him. Her aunt though disagrees and takes her home. Joe has to play the game of his life and when he's injured, and things don't look good for him, his daughter comes out and gets him right back on the field.

All right, all right. All right, all right.

Never

say

no.

Well, this is Kingman's

defining moment, Marv.

If they win, they guarantee themselves

a spot in the playoffs.

Everybody get on the King's back

and I'm going to lead you

to the promised land.

- All right? On one, on one. Ready?

- Break!

Go deep.

Watch your left!

Let's go!

Pick him up. Pick him up.

Sanders. Sanders.

Go wide!

Hut-hut!

Hut!

All right, here's

Kingman. Drops back in the pocket.

He's got Sanders wide open

in the end zone.

Kingman is on the run.

He's inside the five.

He stiff-arms. It's the Kingman swing.

And he is in! Touchdown, Rebels.

They've won it.

What a

tremendous play by Kingman, Marv.

But I have to wonder,

yesterday he was...

The King does it again!

- Go Joe!

- Go Joe!

- Never say no!

- Never say no!

Yeah!

WZPZ FM.

Hey, Boston. Happy New Year.

And a special shout out to our Rebels.

Don't party too hard, boys.

You're going to need all your strength

to bring home that championship.

- Enjoy your drink.

- To us.

Hope it's okay.

I'm telling you guys,

these aren't the normal onion rings.

They got garlic and mint leaves.

I mean, like, beluga caviar.

Hey, Coop. Coop, check it out.

- See the hottie? 12 o'clock, tan dress?

- Oh, yeah.

I think she said

you have a killer smile, bro.

I do.

You should go talk to her.

- You think so?

- I know so. Come on.

Get in there. Get in there.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, swamp mouth.

Use some of this. Chicks dig it.

- Webber, you got a pen?

- Why?

Because you might want

to take some notes.

What's up?

Webber!

I told you, they bumped up shoot.

I have to catch last flight to Paris.

But Tatianna will miss you.

The King doesn't want his queen

to miss him too much.

So I got you a little something special.

- Close your eyes.

- Okay.

Tatianna, Tatianna. Which one?

Which one?

No peeking.

Dreams are on Joe tonight, honey.

Happy New Year.

- Channel?

- Or Chanel.

Whoa, Sanders.

Where you going?

Just past your bedtime?

Yeah, well, you know,

it's New Year's Eve.

Want to go home,

hug the wife, kiss the kids.

All right, thanks for coming.

Happy New Year.

- All right, Happy New Year.

- All right, see you at practice.

All right, see you.

All right, Joe. Come on, it's real funny.

Now, just give me back the wallet,

all right?

I'm looking to confiscate

Sanders' man card,

but his wife, Maria,

has already done it.

- Yes, really...

- Come on. Get a life, Sanders.

Oh, you call this "life"?

That ain't life, Joe.

Oh, you call this "life"?

That ain't life, Joe.

- Whatever.

- He's mad. That was funny, man.

- Who's ready to party?

- I am.

Party!

Yeah!

Where can I get a man card?

- Why? The night is still young!

- We can walk Spike.

- Play the guitars, Joe. Come on.

- We were just bonding.

- I love that idea.

- We're starting to jell.

- Call me.

- Joe...

We were doing so good.

Hey, Spike. There's my boy.

Haven't seen you all night.

Do you know who the greatest

quarterback of all time is?

Just checking. Let's go! Huddle up!

Can you feel it? Can you smell it?

Do you believe it?

Z- slant Mississippi! On three. Ready?

Break! Hut! Hut! Hut!

Come on, Spike.

We need a football biscuit.

Oh, that's a good one.

Oh, this is a good one.

Kingman drops back, he's...

Oh, defenders are coming around.

Post pattern, Spike. Post pattern.

He throws.

Touchdown! They're going crazy.

Crazy.

Gracias, Rosa. Enjoy your vacation.

What do you want to do, Spike?

What do you want to do today?

It's a new year.

You want to play football?

You want to go for a walk?
