It's a father and child reunion, albeit one with a distinctive showbiz twist, in this episode of HBO's popular late-night talk show satire. Though Artie (Rip Torn) hasn't seen his son Cully (Colin Quinn) for many years, the fatherly producer hires him as a production assistant when he hears that Cully has fallen on hard times. Despite some questionable behavior, Larry (Garry Shandling) is willing to give Cully a shot until the unstable P.A.'s rude behavior becomes too much to handle. Aside from being rude to Larry, Cully further isolates himself from the crew when he totals Hank's (Jeffrey Tambor) car and dates both Paula (Janeane Garofalo) and Betsy the Page. Despite Artie's continued efforts to help his son fit in, the hapless producer finds himself in the position of firing his son after Cully punches Phil (Wallace Langham).
