Missed last week's Ed, but saw it tonight. In a plot like "Best of Times" where Ed is messed up by the recounting of his free throw miss in the high school championship 15 years ago, and Ed thinks he missed out on living a different life, the life of a "winner" or a "Have" vs. a "Have not". Shirley has the hots for a delivery man, and Phil and Kenny make like cupid. It seemed to work. During a re-match of the game, Ed pulls his hamstring on the 1st possession of the game and has to sit out the rest of the game. Still frustrated, he makes a bet: $5000 if he missed a re-creation of the high school free throw shot, or he and his school get the championship trophy if he makes the shot. In an effort to comfort Molly who still has issues with Jim, Ed dresses up like a gorilla and delivers a Gorilla-gram. Molly and Ed talk, and Ed talks about the free throw and how he thinks his life would have been like if he made the free throw. Molly counters with the observation that he would not be the person he is today, a nutty friend who'd dress up like a gorilla to cheer up a friend, so who's the worst for not making that free throw? The whole last 3 seconds of the game is replayed at the school gym, everyone is in their uniforms, Ed even gets the referee from that fateful game, and Ed totally chokes the free throw, and has an expensive free throw to pay for. Molly consoles Ed and knows why he purposefully missed the free throw - in order to stay the person he's become in the last 15 years .
