The next day, David, Hank, and Michael play hockey at an outdoor rink. Well, David and Hank are playing. Michael's watching them from a bench on the sidelines. David makes a goal off of Hank -- who doesn't even look like he was trying too hard, anyway -- and skates over to Michael. David gushes (and you kind of have to admire how much he digs his kid) that Hank scored the winning goal in a championship match last year. David asks Mike why he's on the sidelines. Mike can't skate. Mike told him he couldn't skate. But that didn't fit into The Perfect World Plan, so David ignored it. David says he'll help Mike. This has disaster written all over it. Hank skates over to them as David struggles to keep Mike upright on the ice. Mike snaps, "If God wanted me to be on ice, he would have made me a Vodka martini. I could use a drink about now. What is this, 'fags on ice'?" David laughs, "No, that's the Olympic Figure Skating Team." Hee. He finally gets Michael standing okay, when his cell phone rings. He asks Hank to help Michael and takes the call. While Michael and Hank desperately lean on each other, David skates leisurely circles around them while talking on the phone. Ha! Anyway, it's his office; one of the Pittsburgh Penguins threw his back out, and they need Dr. Dave to realign it. He apologizes to Hank for having to go. Hank manages to hold back tears of relief. Mike, on the other hand, is not so relieved; what the heck is he going to do with Hank for the rest of the day? David says that he won't be long. Mike panics that he and Hank don't know each other very well. David sternly replies that they'll get to, won't they? Besides which, Resistance Is Futile. Mike says that David doesn't understand. David's more or less done with this conversation, but humors Mike -- what doesn't he understand? Mike says that Hank was looking forward to spending time with his dad, not his dad's boy toy! David repeats that he won't be gone for long, and that as long as Mike sticks to the Bataan Death March...er, "itinerary," they should both have a good time and everything will be fine. For some reason, this doesn't instill Michael with a sense of confidence. Can't see why. After David leaves, Mike looks back at Hank, who just glides away from him without a word.
