During another Facetime before the match against Manchester City F.C., Henry asks Ted why when he sees him on TV coaching soccer, it doesn't look like he's doing anything, which his father replies that he doesn't have much control because once the game is going, he can't tell his players what to do. He just hope that everything he'd been trying to teach made some impact and the players will make the right decision when they are out there on their own. Ted concludes that it's like being a father. When Henry doesn't answer, he realizes that his son has checked out for a while and didn't listen.
