      Deciding Chuck has had enough time to grieve over Nora's death, Pop gallantly sets him up on a blind date. Since Chuck doesn't have the backbone to do so, Kit tells Pop that he has no right to play matchmaker for his son, especially since Chuck is too shy to be fixed up. Despite Kit's protests and Chuck's desire to remain a one-woman guy, Chuck ends up going through with the affair... albeit with a toupee. Although his date, Bonnie, is better-looking than he is, and a good ten years younger, the two of them have a couple things in common -- her mother fixed her up, and she's no more confident on the dating scene than he is. But he comes home from their dinner date feeling like he did everything wrong, starting with his failing to admit to her that he's balding. When Pop apologizes to Chuck for meddling, claiming that he didn't want to see him end up alone like he is, Chuck nervously sees Bonnie a second time, sans the hairpiece -- after which he learns that she knew all along, and likes him better without it.moreless

      Father Chuck, Jr. is in a bit of a bind when the homeless shelter where he was helping out is forced to closed down suddenly. He's managed to find a new home for everyone, save for one person, and asks Pop if they could stay with him temporarily. Pop reluctantly says yes, only to learn that there's two people: a Hispanic woman, Rosa, and her infant son, Bob. But when Rosa (who barely speaks any English) overstays her welcome, Pop and Kit begin to suspect that the Father's motives aren't entirely pure, and Rosa is a scam artist. They get one right -- Father Chuck, Jr. goes on to announce that he's resigning from the priesthood, so that he can marry Rosa and be the other kind of father. Although everyone takes the news hard, only Pop is so angry about it that he nearly disowns his grandson. Pop's increasing feelings towards the baby cause him to eventually have a change of heart... at the same time that Junior has his own about the marriage thing.moreless
