Dan shows up at Whitey's office; at least he knocks before going in this time. Woda says, "You're late. I expected you this morning after that article in the paper." Dan replies, "I understand Lucas has asked Keith to play in the basketball game. Do you think that's wise?" Woda asks him why not. Dan replies, "Keith's not exactly a father." Thank goodness Whitey's there to say exactly what I'm thinking: "You're not the best father either, Danny, and you're playing." Heh. Then Dan tries a different approach: "What about Lucas, you have to know this is embarrassing for him." Again, Woda speaks from a position of pure truth: "Embarrassing for him, what about embarrassing for you?" Dan tries to leave, but Whitey holds him back: "This isn't about Keith or Lucas. This is about you, Danny. This is about the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you see the son that you never claimed." Cue the melodramatic music. "You were a great player, maybe the best I ever had. But you could score a hundred points in this game and that feeling's not going to go away. It'll be there until you acknowledge that Lucas is your son and that you made a mistake." And no truer words have ever been spoken. Alas, is it enough to bring non-Moses down from his manmade mountain of shame? Oh, wait -- no, because that would mean Dan had feelings and we all know that's not true.
