It's Danny's birthday and he's not happy about his kids not remembering it. They're actually paying more attention to a kindly old sea captain who lives in the building,they even save money to buy the captain a new sweater to replace his torn one. Danny feels he's competing for their attention,not just for his birthday but also as an interesting male figure in their life. He regains their attention by introducing them to what his world in show business is like. They then give him a present, in the show business tradition. Written by happipuppi13
