Storyline

Harry Matthews, the president of Mike's architectural firm, gives Mike a gift of a pool table as a thank you for a job well done. The family has a range of emotions concerning the gift. On one side is Carol, who doesn't want the monstrous gift taking up space in the house. On the other side is Bobby, who ends up spending all his waking time playing and thinking about the game. He even dreams of becoming a world famous pool champion. Bobby does show an aptitude for the game, easily beating everyone around him. Mike and Carol hold a small but increasing growing dinner party specifically for Mr. Matthews to show their appreciation for the gift. Problems for Mike may arise when Bobby asks to play against Mr. Matthews, who mistakenly sees himself as a pool shark. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Bobby bets Greg and Peter in a game of 9-ball. In this game, all balls must be pocketed in sequential order from the 1-ball to the 9-ball, unless there is a combination shot. Bobby beats Greg and Peter without them getting a shot. However, Bobby pockets the 6-ball while the 3-ball is still on the table. There is no combo shot, so the cue ball should have been given to Greg and Peter to place anywhere on the table as a penalty. See more »
