  • Season 1
    • A Rock and a Head Case
      Travis is in jail, so he figures he must go back to 1988 to change the course of his life. "I have to clear my name," he tells Pinkus. "Lose the bad-boy label. Labels stick." Also back then: Claudia's relationship with Timmy Robinson is blossoming, which really wounds Gregg. And Zooey's not doing well in school, even though she's really smart. The reason, she says, is that she doesn't want to be a "freak." Travis' advice to both siblings: "Just be who you are." They do so, with results that, while predictable, aren't pretty.moreless

But that's not all Travis has to fix: There are Gregg and Claudia to reunite; and Double D's life to save, one strip of bacon at a time. Meanwhile, the teenage Pinkus wants to travel back in time himself. (It seems that there was an incident at summer camp he wants to change.)moreless
