Episode Summary

Walter tries to impress a woman who's a World War II buff with his war souvenirs, only to discover they don't mean as much to him as he originally believed. Walter falls in love with Julia , a WWII buff, and invites her over to the Powell home for dinner to impress her with his war memorabilia. Unfortunately, he forgot that he ordered Charles to throw them out when he cleaned the house. To remedy the situation, Walter decides to borrow some replicas from his veteran group, the John Paul Jones Society. He has an authentic looking bomb, Japanese sword and flag delivered to the house. At dinner that night, Charles joins Walter in impressing Julia with the war memorabilia. But after a while, Walter starts to feel guilty about lying and confesses the truth to Julia. He also realizes that the souvenirs weren't that important to him, he just kept them to make his 35 years in the navy feel more important . While Walter plays down the significance of the souvenirs, Charles discovers a medal Walter received for saving the lives of three shipmates. Walter feels proud but realizes that he doesn't want to live in the past anymore. Written by Pete 1moreless
