Carla and Eddie are now in a relationship. Ever since Carla blew him the kiss and Eddie let in that cheap goal, Eddie has been on a slump. The most superstitious couple ever, Eddie and Carla analyze Eddie's life routine since the slump started, the only change in routine being Carla in his life. Not only does Carla come to the conclusion that she may be a jinx, but so does every one else in the bar. So she dumps Eddie, admitting to the gang that she did it just to prove that she isn't Eddie's jinx. At the game that night, Eddie's slump ends. Later, he and Carla have a heart to heart about their relationship and Eddie's career. A couple of weeks later, as Eddie is continuing to play well, Eddie and Carla seemingly are back in a relationship when they replay almost to a T the scene of Carla dumping him - this has now become their new winning routine before every game. Meanwhile, Diane is still at the trial and still talking to whoever will listen to her. Reminiscent of 12 Angry Men (1957), Diane stands alone in the jury as the dissenting voice thinking that the accused is guilty, comparing the relationship of the accused and his victim wife to Sam and herself. However the wife drops the charges since she has changed her mind about his guilt and admits that she still loves him. This act ends the trial much to Diane's dismay. Later the husband and wife coincidentally show up at the bar. Based on a sly comments from Diane, the wife storms out of the bar once again afraid of her husband, followed closely by him, not before he throws a few angry parting shots to Diane. At least, in Diane's mind, justice has now been served.
