Chief and Pete are still talking, but they've had a few drinks. Pete needles Chief to ask him a question, and Chief finally says, "Who's the girl?" (By the way, I would like to thank Sylph and iMissEthan from the forums for pointing out that Pete is played by Neal Jones, who also played Johnny's cousin in Dirty Dancing. You know, the one who helped Baby carry the watermelons? That was driving me crazy.) Anyway, Pete pretends not to know what his father is talking about, but then finally admits that Steve, his partner, is probably more the girl. Chief is relieved to hear it and, emboldened, tries to ask why Pete is gay. Pete says that he was born that way. Chief wonders if it was anything Chief did. Pete repeats that he was born that way, and that it's not Chief's fault. Chief didn't think so. I admire Pete's restraint. He could point out that it's not like being gay is a bad thing, so there's no one to blame. But I guess he's picking his battles here, which is probably smart.
Leon and Lou are still talking at the bar. They've clearly had a few more drinks by now. Leon says that if he could have any bone marrow in the world, he'd want either Lou's or Ellen DeGeneres's. Lou asks why Ellen's, and Leon kind of yells, "I think she's funny!" Hee! That delivery was awesome. Lou says he needs to go, and asks Leon to settle up. Leon pulls out some cash and says that he owes $7.50 and Lou owes the rest. Lou can't believe Leon wants him to pay, and Leon says he only invited Lou out for one drink. Lou gets pissed and reminds Leon about the whole bone marrow thing. Leon says, "Maybe my wife left me because of your marrow, right? Your TAINTED marrow!" Lou starts demanding his marrow back, and grabs Leon's jacket and they tussle. Leon yells, "Stay away from my marrow! This is my marrow now! Jerk!" Hee! Lou tells Leon to go ahead and call the cops, since they weren't around when he needed bone marrow, and then orders Leon to keep his marrow. Leon leaves and Lou tries to settle up the bill. He only has a few dollars, so he leans in to tell the bartender that he's a firefighters. The bartender doesn't seem impressed, so Lou suddenly bolts out of there. I was kind of wondering where this whole bone marrow thing was going, but that scene was hilarious.
Chief and Pete have moved from beer to whiskey. Chief says that when Pete was little, he thought Pete would be "a regular guy," and that they could go to ball games together. Pete says that he likes sports, and that he'd love to go to a game with his dad. Chief says that he spent a lot of time dreaming about how Pete would turn out, and that the reality isn't exactly what he expected. Pete says, "You can hang on to your dream kid from a million years ago, or you can start dealing with me. Start being a father to me." Chief says it's tough to let go of your dreams. Pete says that he had dreams too: "I dream of you saying you're proud of me. I dream of you hugging me like you did when I was little, my nose full of sweat, smoke, and Aqua Velva. And you telling me you love me. I dream of you being interested in my life and wanting to be a part of it." Man, do I feel bad for Pete right now. But it gets worse. Chief suggests that they should both stop dreaming, and Pete angrily wants to know why. Chief says that he wishes he could accept Pete, but that it's a lot. Chief starts crying, his face all red. Pete puts out his hand, and after a moment, his father takes it. Aw.
