Synopsis Edit

Brendon makes a documentary about Melissa's grandfather, but he decides to spice it up when he thinks its going to be boring.

Plot Edit

Melissa's father Erik comes up to Brendon and asks if he can make a film about his father Ned's life for his birthday. Brendon agrees and interviews Ned with Jason at his retirement home, but he starts to find the interview boring and he remakes the interview again with Ned in a drag. When he shows the film at Ned's birthday, Melissa becomes angry at the treatment of her grandfather, however Erik finds the film to be humorous. Brendon and Jason attempt to make it up to Melissa by giving her balloons and a box of chocolates, but it wasn't enough for Melissa to forgive Brendon about the interview. Then Brendon and Jason decided to do an reenactment of Ned saving a fellow soldiers life during a Nazi assault during World War II, starring Coach McGuirk. When they show the film to Ned, he is unable to give his apparently negative opinion as he keeps flatlining.
