Episode cast overview:
Scott's Ex-Boss
Art Frankel ...
Old Man


Seven months ago, a golfer named Scott bought everyone at a golf canteen a drink because he hit a hole-in-one. Earl happened to be in that canteen and, to his surprise, found himself getting a free beer. As Earl himself puts it in the narration, "to some people, a free beer might not mean too much. But for a guy who just lost his last 12 dollars and is stuffin' free nuts in his pocket... it's a life saver", and with Randy, he started fixing Scott's games so he'd always win and be so happy about his golf performance he'd buy everyone at the canteen a drink. Now, Earl wants to make up for this by giving Scott back all the beer he had cost him. But giving back the beer turns out to be not even half the challenge: Scott thought he was such a good golfer that he started to spent all his time on golf, which got him fired and dumped. Earl realizes this is all his fault and decides he has to get Scott his job and girlfriend back to be able to cross him off the list. Meanwhile, Randy gets more... Written by Marco van Hoof <>

Don't forget the family
13 April 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

This episode has one of the most hilarious and, definitely, one of my favourites flashbacks of the old Earl. Is just amazingly funny all the things that Earl and Randy use to do just for some free beer, actually the ruined the life of Scott, an ex golfer who use to think that he was an excellent golfer but when the things start to be different he begins to have an obsession for return to his level so he left everything (wife, job and dog) just to be again a near professional golfer.

But what Scott didn't know was that Earl and Randy were the ones who fix his games just for the free beer that he invites to everybody every time he has a great game. But this two are "natural born criminals" so it was easy for them to start abusing of Scott's generosity and soon there wasn't more free beer and in consequence the obsession of Scott begins.

Of course when Earl wants to fix everything, things are more complicated and at the same time he realize that his list is becoming an obsession, just like Scott with golf. And here is confirmed again the great brotherhood with Randy and finally Earl realize that family will always come first.
