Episode Summary

EDIT
Zach's Father's Day gift doesn't meet Lucas's approval
AIRED:
Zach has bought a bottle of scotch for Father's Day on Sunday. Lucas is not impressed with the brand, and before Zach can stop him, opens the bottle for a whiskey-tasting lesson. It's not long before everyone on the train is enjoying Zach's gift. Everyone except Liz, whose own dad drank enough for the whole family. Lucas's rich father only ever gave him cash presents, a symptom of his neglect. Now Lucas is paying him back each Father's Day, dollar for dollar. Zach tries to participate in this "childhood scars" competition, but Liz wins hands-down. Brenda is still trying to hook Dana up, this time with a nice boy from church. Shannon rescues Dana, changing the topic to her mother's persistent requests to talk to her ex-husband. Brenda urges her to call her father on Sunday, but Shannon wants nothing to do with him. Though Dana still lives with her parents, she feels she and her father don't really know each other anymore. Brenda's father died when she was a child, and she would give anything to talk to him again. Pete still doesn't know where to take Renee on their date Saturday. As he enjoys Zach's scotch on an empty stomach, Randy suggests The King and I at the Stratford Festival. This is Pete's father's favourite musical. In fact, dad's coming over for Sunday brunch, so Pete's going to have to get Renee out of the house by noon. But his Thursday bet with Randy is still a sure thing. Randy and Pete discuss parental pressures (marriage within the culture, grandchildren) until scotch and trainsickness gang up on Randy and he makes a dash for the washroom. Shannon wrestles with the fear of reconnecting with her estranged parent, while Zach finally decides to draw a homemade Father's Day card for the first time in years.moreless
