Storyline

Buddy Sorrell's brother, "Blackie" Sorrell (from whom Buddy has been estranged for a long time), shows up at the Alan Brady Show's offices one day. Later meeting Buddy's brother alone while Buddy is out, Rob invites him to his house for dinner, not knowing of his past as a pool hustler. After dinner, knowing Rob has a pool table in the basement, Blackie not-so-innocently suggests that the two of them try playing a game or two. Written by aldanoli
