  • Episode Description
  • A young boy befriends Louise and Helen and they become convinced that he has a crush on one of them but the real reason he befriended them was to get to George. He wants to ask George if he would participate in a father-son bowling tournament, since his father is supposedly dead. However, the boy does indeed have a father who's alive, but not-so well, he's a paraplegic.

    • George: Why did you tell me your father was dead? Darren: I didn't say that, what I said was that I didn't have anybody to go to the tournament with. George: What do you mean? It's a father and son bowling tournament, you have a father, why didn't you ask him? Darren: Think about it, all those sons with all their fathers, it'd be too much for him. George: You mean it'd be too much for you. Darren: My dad's in a wheelchair, what can he do? George: Plenty. Darren: Like what? George: I don't know, maybe he can bowl a 300 game. There are people in wheelchairs who can do all kinds of stuff, some play tennis and some play basketball and some can run the marathon. But you'll never know what your father can do if you don't ask him.

    • Darren: My father has a handicap. George: No, your father has a disability, YOU have the handicap.
