Josh tries to bond with his dad Matt, but they have trouble finding common ground. When Matt decides to head out of town again, Gabi intervenes and brings Matt to Josh’s softball game in an effort to get them together. But Josh is filling in on Elliot’s team in a gay softball league, so Matt gets the wrong idea about his son.
