In a cell, the men proceed to give very different accounts, mediated by a white officer who challenges both groups' assumptions.

The episode of "Cat's In The Cradle" revolves around Hillman-Virginia A & M game. It alludes to the dialogue that it is a football game because they reference the A&M All-American quarterback Dan Sykes will not play. The show originally aired January 16th and the dialogue references Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. This is an error in timeline due to the fact that college football is traditionally over this time, thus making the reference of a "quarterback" a hiccup to the storyline. See more
