Plot Overview

Mac and De are opening the bar when they find a guy passed at a table. After trying to poke him with a pool stick they figure out that the guy is dead. They decide to try and clean up the mess and make it look like it never happened. His granddaughter, Rebecca, shows up to learn about her grandfather. Mac and Dennis begin competing for Rebecca's attention by claiming to have known her grandfather.

The situation makes Dee depressed and so she decides to visit her grandfather in the nursing home. Dennis won't go with her so she asks Charlie to go along. When they get there Dee gets cold feet because she is creeped out by old people and leaves. This leaves Charlie stuck with her grandfather who mistakes Charlie for Dennis. He discovers that Dee's grandfather is anti-semetic because he was a Nazi. He doesn't trust "the jews" and so asks Charlie to get his Nazi uniform so that he can be buried in it.

Meanwhile Dennis claims to know some of Rebecca's grandfather's friends and agrees to get them together for the funeral. Dennis goes to the local soup kitchen with Mac and finds some homeless people to act as the grandfather's friends. At the funeral Dennis continues to belittle Mac; especially when Mac gets a phone call during the service. Mac has to leave and stops by Charlie's place.

When he arrives, Mac finds Charlie dressed in a Nazi uniform; it belongs to Dennis and Dee's grandfather. They try to figure out a way to make profit on the material and not bury it with the grandfather and decide to try and sell it to a museum. They take it to a museum but are rejected and thrown out. They then decide to just burn it because they run the risk of going to jail. Dennis shows up to gloat to Mac about having beaten him for Rebecca. Mac hands him a picture of his grandfather as a Nazi.

Meanwhile Dee has been trying to get over her phobia of old people by going to visit her grandfather, but gets sick when he starts touching her face.
