Plot Overview

Miffed that their dads never taught them to throw a baseball, Gary and Wyatt wish for them to be taken back in time in their dads' place to teach their younger selves. Unfortunately, this mission is derailed when Gary is put in his mother's place and this leads to a misunderstanding that causes them to create a story to keep the boys from splitting up their parents.

Memorable Moments


  • When Gary, Lisa, and Wyatt are walking together at the block party, there is an extra in the foreground (woman in orange) who takes a drink, but is clearly not putting it to her lips. Instead awkwardly moves her mouth away from the camera and appears to have it only putting it next to her mouth.


  • Gary: Come on, Gary. What do you say to going outside with your mom and playing some catch?
Little Gary: No.
Gary: Come on, just you and me, chucking the ball around.
Little Gary: No.
Gary: Al. Talk to your son. Get him out of the house, away from the TV. Play some catch with him.
Al: You know, that's a great idea. Turn off the TV for a change. It's time for a little father-son bonding. Get out in the fresh air, hitting the old horsehide. What do you say, son?
Little Gary: No.
Al: Okey-doke.
