The Vows

There was this one episode of Coach where Coach was hell of stressed-out because he and Christine had agreed that in their upcoming wedding (whenever that was) they would be writing their own vows. Being a football coach, this wasn’t the sort of thing that Coach was really that interested in doing, and I think he only did it to make Christine happy. I think there were all kinds of jokes about how Coach hadn’t even started working on his vows and Christine had had hers memorized for months. Like maybe Dauber was all: “Coach, how’re the vows coming?” and Coach would make some joke about how he was almost done buying the paper he was going to write them on or something like that.

At some point in the episode, Christine ended up in the hospital for some reason. I remember that Coach was visiting her and she was upset because she didn’t think he’d worked on his vows at all when, in fact, he had. He ended up surprising her (and the audience) by reciting his vows right there in the hospital. Though this was a romantic gesture, it seemed like the vows were a little bit too jokey to be the sorts of vows you would want at your wedding. But I guess if you’re going to marry a sexist football coach, this is as romantic as it gets.

Eventually they left the hospital I'm pretty sure.
