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
