Matt rushes to the hospital when he learns his father has had heart failure. Sean and Beverly find themselves dragged along to support him during his day of familial hell.

Matt's bedside manner is put to the test as he contends with not just his cantankerous father, but also his father's nightmare girlfriend: both want Matt to use his celebrity status to get them everything from a better room to a better surgeon.

As the senior LeBlanc's medical situation grows graver, Matt is forced to come to terms with his father's mortality. And yet, even in the face of death, the old guy is no less annoying.
