When Henry borrows one of Ed's shirts without asking him, Ed embarrasses him in front of Zoey, a girl he likes, by taking it back in public and forcing him to spend the rest of the morning with no shirt on. When they get home, though, Ed discovers that he inadvertently lent Henry's favorite jacket to his friend Josh. Not wanting to be caught breaking one of his own rules, Ed tries to get the jacket back without Henry finding out.
Unfortunately for Ed, this proves difficult. Josh, an EMT, used the jacket to warm up a drowning man who later died. In order to get it back, Ed crashes the funeral where he is mistaken for the dead man's "special friend". Upon being asked to deliver a speech by the grieving family, Ed plays along and tells them about his homosexual love for the now-dead Sweet Louie. This is when he learns that by "special friend", Louie's family meant AA sponsor, not gay lover.
Things turn out well for Henry, as Zoey (who was providing flowers for the funeral) overheard Ed's speech and is turned on by the idea that he has a gay father. Ed gets Henry his jacket back, and in the process Henry proves to his father that not even Ed can follow his own rules all the time.
Meanwhile, Vince learns that Bonnie and Josh had a sexual relationship before they met. Vince demands that his wife fill him in on all the juicy details, but finding out what happened just horrifies him more. In the end, Vince has to kiss Josh himself in order to feel vindicated.
