To Meg's utter amazement she is asked to dance by Bandstand regular Jimmy Riley, before he is whisked away by another regular Teresa. JJ quietly rejoins the football team. Sam Walker earns a track scholarship to almost-all-white East Catholic High. Jack invites Sam to dinner to meet JJ, seeing that they're both now on the track team.
A rumor starts circulating about Meg and Jimmy Riley "doing it", which Roxanne thinks is great, because it means Meg's important now. JJ hears George Mason call him a "Catholic kid from West Philly" to his country-club friends. Meg is asked out on her first date by Jimmy Riley and she readily accepts. JJ dominates the competition in his return to the gridiron.
