Max is SOOOOO busted
None of this would have happened if Maxwell didn’t “re-brand” himself as Max.
Gil grills Bacon and he spills the beans – out of the frying pan and into the fire, these guys are toast!
Max is definitely a few strips short of a pound.
Gil seems confused. “OK, maybe drug tests can tell me” what’s been going on. So far, fine. But then it’s “Or your parents, or the POLICE, if you’re conspiring to fix games.” Does Gil mean the parents and police know all about what’s going on but haven’t told him? Or does he mean the kids will have to explain to the parents or the police?
Should have gotten Kaz that damn towel.
It’s Max Bacon, not Max Brain.
Well somebody has to explain what’s going on to Gil since he refuses to show up.
Good to see Lobster Boy return in P2 as his left claw tries to explain the problem to Gil. And the miraculous recovery in P3 as he points the finger at Big Time Coach/Drug Lord/Bookie/Game Fixer Bobby.
Talk about Dumb and Dumber. Book ’em Dano.
“This idiot??” Max has a single-digit “keep-your-mouth-shut I.Q.” Fix games? Yes, lots of betting follow the Mudlarks in Las Vegas East. ;)
Finally, after months of dragging on and on, the plot races to a climax in just 3 days. I guess we can assume no playdowns for the ’Larks (sorry Malik and Downtown Kenny Brown), and move on to baseball. Gil must already know this – that appears to a be a baseball sitting atop a candlestick on his desk. Maybe having the state championship trophy there got old.
Bobby’s werewolf hands in P1 add to the suspense as well.
P1- Aloha Mr. Hand. We haven’t seen the Milford Police Chief since Chip Visci and Hamani Gaines had that auto accident by Arnold’s err, The Bucket. P3- If it’s your Adderall and I’m taking it, doesn’t it make our Adderall?
Max panicked because he knows he already failed his algebra and history tests, and if he failed his drug test he’d be ineligible.
Tomorrow Bobby can finally reveal that he’s only been giving Max an aspirin with the markings scuffed off, and Max will learn that the power has been inside him all along and he doesn’t need drugs. That’s what this has been building to this whole time.
In all reality , Leisl tells Bobby " Where you stealing my birth control pills to give Max ? I ’ m pregnant Bobby.
I am thinking EXACTLY the same thing as Jimmymanners.
This is the end Beautiful friend This is the end My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end Of everything that stands, the end No safety or surprise, the end I’ll never look into your eyes…again
When does Gil get called on the carpet by Dr. Pearl for his utter lack of institutional control (as they used to say in the NCAA as an equivalent to cheating)?
P3- Max looking a little like a young Tom Chambers
If he can’t handle the simple interrogation of his coach he’ll never be able to be a winner. What a choke!! Do you think we’re still talking placebo or the real dope?
….and they both are dropped from the team…….
Thank God! Let’s put this storyline out of its misery and move on.
Hey, has anyone guessed that maybe Bobby has been giving Max placebos all along? Am I the first one to think of this?
Good old Max. Opens his mouth and obviates the need for Gil and the school board to provide probable cause for testing. Whatever the half-life of adderall might be, any trace would be long gone since he wasn’t dosed for at least two games. Bobby would test positive, but he has a legitimate medical diagnosis. Now would be the approprate time to unveil the P word. It is possible, however unlikely, that Max will comprehend the situation. Perhaps they can draw pictures…………
If I were Bobby, I would just say, “Fine, Coach, go to the police. And when they come to ask me questions, I’ll have one for them: What became of Coach Thorp’s children?”
MOP, In MUT : they’re going down on each other? Cue Roy Orbison’s “It’s Over”
