Episode Summary

Home Games
While on the way to Texas, the guys stop off at a bar in St. Rose, LA so that Insect Bob can use the restroom. Insect Bob and Ungalow eat lunch and prepare to play Pac-Man. Meanwhile, Space looks for a telephone book. He once received a postcard postmarked from St. Rose, Louisiana from his long-lost father. Space finds an address in the phone book and prepares what to say to his father after not seeing him for so many years. While he drives to the address that he found, he thinks about the time when his father took him and his brother, Doug, to a baseball game. After arriving at the address, he knocks on the door and sees a young boy, Michael. His mother, Helen, comes to the door after a moment. Helen tells Space that her husband is no longer there and that she can't help him if he's owed money by Bill Lauglin. Space figures that his father also abandoned this second family, like he did Space's family. Insect Bob talks to Space and tells him that he should go back and talk to his brother. Space doesn't consider Michael his brother, but does go back for another visit. This time, Helen decides to invite Space into the home, seemingly knowing who he is. They talk about their experiences with Bill Lauglin, good and bad. Later, Michael comes in to find Space asleep in Helen's arms. He runs off, but Space catches him and tells him about his father. Michael figures out who Space is- his half-brother. Space returns to the bar and then decides to go back to the house to say his final goodbyes. He leaves Michael the money that his father gave him at the baseball game. He had been carrying it around with him like a piece of his father for all of these years. Michael in turn gives Space something as well, a photograph. Space heads back to the bar and tells Insect Bob and Ungalow that he would like to tell them the story about the time that his father took he and his brother to a baseball game.moreless
