Joey gets a letter his former best friend Jimmy Coasta, who suddenly split 22 years ago without saying a word, is coming. Everyone is surprised Jimmy looks like a "homeless", quoting Gina who is quite nervous because as she told Alex she had sex with Jimmy then and tells him in private that Joey doesn't know about their past relationship but Gina and Jimmy start making out again in Michael's bedroom, Joey enters then and finds out the past too. Jimmy explains that's why he never said good bye, afraid of telling the truth. Joey is very angry, but after reminiscing with Jimmy, they make up. However, Joey and Gina see that Jimmy has the same mannerisms and interests as Michael, who was born 9 months after Gina and Jimmy last 'met'. Michael and Jimmy prove matched geniuses solving maths and science problems, but fight frustrated, so even after Gina tells Michael that Jimmy is his father he doesn't want to know him. Joey, flattered to be chosen as substitute-pa, makes his cousin reconsider... Written by KGF Vissers

Gina says she had sex with Jimmy 22 years ago, and that Michael was born 22 years and 9 months ago; which means Michael was born 9 months BEFORE she had sex with Jimmy, thus Jimmy cannot be Michael's father. See more »

Joey and the High School Friend (#2.11)
18 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An old friend of Joey messages him and wants to talk. He stopped talking to him without any explanations, only as it turns out it was because him and Gina slept with each other. Joey forgives that, but then comes a new surprise: Jimmy and Michael seem to have a lot in common and as turns out it is indeed because he is Michael's father. Michael is disappointed with that, but it seems like they will still keep in touch.

A pretty good episode. I did guess pretty fast that Jimmy is Michael's dad, but I still like how they went with it. Sowing all the similar mannerisms and them being so incredibly smart. Also a good choice for the actor. Adam Goldberg was great in it.
