It's the top of the 9th inning, the Angels lead by one run, and Mel Clark's (Tony Danza) pitching arm is tiring after 159 pitches. Rather than take him out of the game, however, George and Roger fake an angel wave and lead Mel to believe that he has an angel with him. Mel makes the pitch, the batter hits the ball, but it is caught and declared an out. Consequently, the Angels win the pennant, and owner Hank Murphy (Ben Johnson) fires obnoxious broadcaster Ranch Wilder (Jay O. Sanders). When George returns Roger and J.P. home, Maggie informs Roger that the adoption agency has found a home for him. At first, Roger is excited until he realizes that it will mean leaving J.P. behind. George then announces that it was he who made the call and that he's going to adopt J.P., too. As the three of them embrace, J.P. looks out the window and sees Al looking in. "I knew it could happen," J.P. says. In the final scene, Al flies away, first circling over the house and stopping to say, "We're always watching." He then flies away, and a bright light (an angel) can be seen running bases in the stars.
