It's the championship baseball game between the team representing Café Tropical versus the team representing Bob's Garage, captained by Patrick and Ronnie respectively. There is already bad blood between the two stemming from the bathroom remodel, each who will do whatever required to beat the other. They don't want to tell the other that they are each down a player which would mean forfeiting the game. They are each able to recruit a replacement, they being for the respective teams: a very reluctant David, who has no skill or want to play any sort of team sport, and a very enthusiastic Johnny, who actually does know how to play. Against their team captains, David and Johnny may have other goals for the game besides winning. Meanwhile, it's the first rehearsal for Cabaret. An already uncomfortable Stevie feels even more out of her element when they start the rehearsal with warm up exercises, including some improvisation games. Moira and the others have to find ways to make Stevie feel...
Did You Know?
In a YouTube video Eugene Levy
confesses that it wasn't him who threw a rogue baseball that hit his son Dan Levy
in his back. The ball was actually thrown by an associate producer. This resulted in the slide into home plate sight gag being done at least 25 times, according to Dan. See more
After David dives for home plate, the front of his jersey is filthy with dirt. He hugs Patrick whose shirt gets filthy from contact. In their next scene, eating barbecue, both shirts are spotless again. See more
You know Johnny, the next time I need a sub remind me to ask the blind goat on Mrs. Divine's farm.
It's just a game, Roland.
Papa smoked his son square in his back!
It was a quick recovery Ronnie but thanks for the play by play.
Luckily for me, I had a side bet on whether Johnny would throw the game in his kid's favour? I consider it to be a draw.
