These are some the very best Coach McGuirk Home Movies moments.
He Pretended to Be a Blind Prophet as a Scam for Cash
It all starts with Coach McGuirk going in for laser eye surgery. He is temporarily blinded by a sloppy procedure, and convinces Brendon and the other kids that he is a psychic now because of that. From there, it spirals downward. He begins charging money for his visions, all of which are false, and even scams old ladies into believing they're talking to their dead relatives. That's pretty sleazy, even for McGuirk.
He Sent Kids Upstairs During a Tornado
When a major storm hits, McGuirk is left in charge of the kids. Really, that's a terrible thing to begin with, but it only gets worse when a tornado hits. His solution? Stay where it's safe and send the kids upstairs to die. He also proceeds to explain to the baby the many different ways that a person can die.
He Convinced a Child to Commit Fraud in Order To Buy a Sub Sandwich
One would think that if Coach McGuirk wanted to commit check fraud, he would just do it himself. But no, he sends Melissa, a child, to do his dirty work for him. The fact that he does it only after trying to scam her out of money, and only to get a sub sandwich, just adds insult to injury.
He Pretty Much Ruined Sensitivity Training
First of all, what kind of sensitivity training involves improv? Leave it to Lynch to find a program like that. Either way, Coach McGuirk treated the whole thing like a big joke, and even went out of his way to hit on one of the instructors. Poorly.
