Jamal (Sheldon Turnipseed) and Rob (Todd Alexander) are walking on the street when they find the cart, box and books of the eccentric poet friend of Rob's, "Double T" (David Patrick Kelly), scattered on the ground with him gone. Rob rallies the team asking for help to find his friend and, together, reading T's poems, they start unfolding part of his past, trying to figure where he could've been. With help of Ghostwriter to decipher some metaphors used in the poems, the kids figure "Double T" was once a soldier in Vietnam and the owner of the Grocery Store of which "T" used to stay in front, reading his writings, tells Rob about a shelter nearby he sleeps over from time to time. Rob goes there and the guard, who was arguing with a girl about giving private informations, tells him he doesn't see "Double T." in a while. Outside the shelter, Rob speaks with the girl, Lisa (Kristy Graves), and learns that "Double T." a.k.a. Thomas Truborn is, in fact, Thomas Norburt, Lisa's father.
