Greg is ashamed when Sam runs screaming to Jimmy for comfort during a thunderstorm. Jimmy thinks the reason Sam didn't run to Greg is because he doesn't act like a man, and suggests he let Sam watch him do manly things to change the tot's mind. Like playing touch football with Jimmy, Billy, Oscar, and Oscar's secret crush, Dot. Greg scores a touchdown during the game, but Sam misses it. What Sam doesn't miss is Greg getting knocked to the ground. Greg sees a chance to redeem himself when Billy kicks the football into a tree, it gets stuck, and nobody wants to get it. Greg decides to impress Sam as the only one brave enough to climb the tree and get it -- except right after he does, his fear of heights kicks in, and the fire department have to come help him down. Jimmy warns Greg to break the chain now, or else his wuss gene will be passed down. Greg has his chance to do so when everybody goes to the movies, and a guy won't stop talking during the film. So Greg stands up and blocks the guy's wife's view. This irritates the guy, whom Greg learns is extremely big when he too stands up. The big guy stops talking, right after saying he'll be waiting in the lobby. After the movie's over, Kim tries to help Greg sneak out, to no avail. Just when it looks like he's going to get the crap kicked out of him in front of his son, Greg catches Sam picking a half-eaten peanut candy -- which he's allergic to -- off the floor, and punches the big guy in the face in order to get away from him to stop Sam from eating it.
