Episode Summary

You're in Trouble
Bobby is shocked when he fails his mandatory drug test, which leaves Oscar doubting the integrity of his football-playing uncle. The strictly drug-free Bobby is determined to clear his good name with the help of Porter and Dena, but their solution only leads Oscar to further question Bobby's morals especially when lawyer Dena gives Bobby the means to cheat on his second and final drug test. Ultimately it turns out that Bobby had been eating Rose's pet bird's bird seed, which contains poppy seeds and therefore led to a false positive result for Bobby. A difficult moral dilemma is it right to cheat in the name of what you know to be true is treated seriously and without condescension in an exceptionally well-written episode.moreless
