In this adventure Don Wrigley is desperate to find a connection with his son, Little Pete. It seems impossible until a friendly rivalry between him and Mr. Hickel (Ellen’s father) escalates into “The Great Prank War” after Mr. Hickel starts broadcasting through the metal plate in Mom’s head in order to get revenge for blowing up his remote controlled car. Will this ware ever end?
Kevin compares Pete and Don’s struggle to when he was a teenager. Erica makes observations about how Don and Pete are actually more alike than they think. They end it comparing the whole thing to the Cold War. Yes. You read that correctly.
