Hard up for cash, Elaine’s father requests a large sum of money, referring to it as “child support.” George blames his parents’ complete lack of affection toward each other as the main reason that he’s incapable of settling down with someone. This throws Frank and Estelle into a furious rage, saying that they’ll “be happy to show him some affection.” They start kissing each other hard, but it doesn’t get more romantic from there. It appears more like this is the first time they’ve tried something like this, and, unsure of where to take it next, their positions become increasingly acrobatic — again, entirely unsexual. Jerry struggles to express his true feelings for his own father to his face; the best he’s able to come up with is, “I’m sure you did very well in shop class as a teenager.” Morty’s eyes well up with tears, and he responds, “I went to one of your tee ball games once.” The two lock eyes and share a compassionate hug in which neither of their torsos touch. Kramer is harassed by a duck he abandoned long ago as a duckling.
