Still in Florida for father Eddie's parole hearing, the brothers fear his chances are slim when his official sponsor, their filthy-rich grandfather Ted Roth, comes aboard. Evan especially bonds easily with the amused fellow-businessman, who generously treats him to dinner and the horse-track. The brothers still help Eddie with his mate Shaw, who is desperate to see his daughter, but Ted demands Eddie stick to his parole conditions instead or he'll withdraw his crucial parole sponsor support. Boris is almost inseparable from Marissa and their baby, yet discretely discovers his car fleet was used to crash into Jill's car. Written by anonymous

Did You Know?


Edward Asner (b. Nov 15, 1929) plays Henry Winkler's father (b. Oct 30, 1945)even though their age difference is just under 16 years. See more »


Evan R. Lawson: If you don't show up for his parole hearing, you'll be punishing him, but you'll be punishing us, too, you know.
Ted Roth: If you feel punished, you should talk to your father.
Evan R. Lawson: You know, you couldn't be more wrong about my mom. Money never mattered to her at all. She only cared about her family. You never knew her. You don't even know your own son, and now... you're never going to know your grandsons. Which sucks for you, because we happen to be pretty amazing.
