Brian (Gale Harold) is in the middle of a three-way when he gets a phone call. The news that his father died doesn't slow him down. The boys are hanging out at the diner later when Brian nonchalantly gives them the news. Justin (Randy Harrison) finds out that Daphne (Makyla Smith) has a boyfriend. She's worried about having sex for the first time, and wants someone experienced, namely Justin, to deflower her. Michael (Hal Sparks) thinks Brian should be with his family, but can't drag him out of Babylon. Ted (Scott Lowell) runs into Blake (Dean Armstrong), apologizes for accusing him of stealing his wallet, and tells him to come see him if he ever needs anything. Blake shows up at Ted's later, swears he's clean, and asks to stay. Brian finds his father's treasured bowling ball while preparing for the funeral. His sister, Claire (Kirsten Kieferle), asks people to share their memories of Dad at the reception. Brian remembers that Jack told his mother to get an abortion when she was pregnant with him. Justin and Daphne nervously prepare to copulate. Justin tells her, "Afterwards, let's not get weird." Emmett (Peter Paige) continues to chide Ted for trusting Blake. Ted accuses Emmett of being jealous. Emmett later catches Blake talking to a dealer, and warns him to stay away from Ted. After the funeral, Brian drunkenly comes on to Michael, who rejects his advances. Later, Daphne tells Justin that she broke up with her boyfriend, and she's also told her friends about what happened between them. When Justin makes it clear that he was only doing her a favor when they had sex, a rift forms between them. Blake disappears, and Ted goes on a frantic search for him. Brian pays a special tribute to his departed father.
