    We see the team running around the pitch, practising headers and taking shots at goal. We then see the team kick the balls in slow motion. "No one has produced an "Ultra-Rapid" Goalie but when Farquharson and friend see this film they'll wish they had Ultra-Rapid eyes..." We see the goalie make a save in slow motion.
