The episode begins at a party in Franklin and Bash’s house. Later, Franklin is sentenced to preside as a judge for cases in the small claims court. Franklin then begins passing judgments on cases. In one case he is forced to rule against a favorite rock and roll club of his and has to order its shut down, as its owner hasn’t paid the rent. Later Franklin meets his father, who asks him if he shall see him on father’s day. Franklin tells him that he has tickets to a game on that day. Pindar meanwhile takes Bash to meet his doctor, as the doctor wants to meet everyone in Pindar’s life. Just then Megan comes running and tells Pindar that his doctor is a fraud named Tony who was arrested earlier for wire fraud and is now convicted for impersonating a psychotherapist. ..
