Episode Summary

Irish Men Can't Jump
Ben is rattled when he sees Luke playing basketball with Serge, Vonda's new boyfriend, right after telling his pop he was going to a friend's. Ben has the Serge talk with Luke, and learns that Luke asked Serge to play with him in a two-man tournament -- which happens to be a father/son game. Luke just wants to win, but starts to take Ben's feelings into consideration. Vonda calls Ben to lay some blame when she learns that Luke dropped out of the game with Serge. Ben begins to question his usefulness as a parent, so he meets with Vonda to clarify why Luke dropped out. Then he decides to get more involved in Luke's life by taking Serge's place in the game -- even though it's that same night. Luke is worried that Ben is going to humiliate him, but goes ahead with it anyway because of Seamus. After a chat with Seamus, Ben begins sharing the same fear as Luke, after which he bails out and lets Luke reinvite Serge. But when Serge ends up getting them disqualified, Luke makes amends with Ben by sharing some one-on-one with him after the game. Meanwhile, Ben and Alex are asked to do a "pre-meeting" with a company.moreless
