Storyline

Joseph is upset that his mother who just died was cremated, not buried according to Jewish tradition. His blind father, Sol, old and feeble, carries the urn containing Sophie's ashes everywhere, talking to her, listening to her, misplacing her. Sol is certain the "urine doctor" (urologist) planted a listening device up his keister enabling the Feds to spy on the family. Sol also claims to have been abducted by aliens who forced him to have sex and create a half-human, half-alien, "like Leonard Nimoy." Joseph's ex-wife, Zoe, now remarried to Bubba on her farm, has come in for the funeral. Their son, Daniel, an MBA graduate, returns from a two year stay in Israel, walks in the door dressed like a Hassid, with full beard, hat, black coat, the whole works. Joseph, a secular Jew, can't believe his eyes. He had expected Daniel to return to run his business. Sol relays Sophie's telepathic message that Daniel's future is in a hot place surrounded by Jews? Daniel: "Israel?" Sol: "Miami." ... Written by Skip Usen
