Bob inadvertently takes a mismatch, boxing against his mom, over court-side seats at a Bulls-Lakers game. Dr. Bob Hartley is stung that his mother still calls him Sonny, and wishes he'd been a cartoonist instead of a having a private psychology practice, which she has no interest in. When Bob reveals to his wife Emily that he hasn't told his mother he loves her since he was a child, Emily persuades him to carpe diem over dinner, before it's too late, because floating like a butterfly has gotten him nowhere near getting Eleanor Hartley to treat him like an adult.
