Storyline

Watching his 13-year-old self play the piano and singly beautifully, on home video, Jimmy sees through the claim that it was just a pianola, now broken. Virginia owns up to feeling guilty for having strangled Jimmy's talent, estranging him from his schoolmates, until a golf club from the air knocks Jimmy down and the musical talent out of him, later the subject of another confession. After consulting Dr. Finklestein, the Chances try to reconstruct the past, including Maw Maw's cruel and unorthodox tutoring methods, hoping Jimmy's memory may be restored. It seems to do so and Jimmy is bribed into the music school's annual concert, only to find out otherwise, yet there's a consolation prize to his taste. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The "Sherwood" mentioned by Shelley as having died was Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of the Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island (the latter series is also referenced during the episode), who had passed away in July 2011, a few months before the "Prodigy" episode of Raising Hope aired. A "Gilligan-style" hat is seen on a chair while Shelley mentions Schwartz as part of the tribute. See more »
