Steve Howston: Hey, wait a minute. I've known D.W. all my life.
Eckart: Howston, I need a personal pilot. The job pays well, and you'll certainly see more than Trevorton, Colorado. I'll assuage your guilt. How much do you want?
Steve Howston: It'll cost you $3,000.
Eckart: I'll give you four.
Steve Howston: Four? All right. It's a deal.

Banner comes home
5 November 2008 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Not wanting to spend another Thanksgiving alone, David heads to his home town and shares his secret with his sister and, not intentionally, his father.

"Homecoming" is one of those great Hulk episodes from the very solid third season. The drama aspect which fueled the series is full on here and it's all very well played out by Bixby, Dinah Muldaur as his sister and especially John Marley as David's father. As we get to see here, David has some wounds to heal where his father is concerned.

The only negative thing here is that the episode is really too short. This would have fitted perfectly as a two-parter and the resolution does feel a bit rushed.

Spoiler.

In the end David doesn't get the luxury of spending Thanksgiving with his family. This is very indicative of how David's ultimate fate was as virtually nothing went in his favor and he seems like the ultimate cursed individual. Really heartbreaking stuff.

End of Spoiler.
