Hank, Peggy, Lucky and Luanne dine at a fancy Japanese restaurant to celebrate the first trimester of Luanne's pregnancy. Cotton ends up watching Bobby that evening but goes to the restaurant anyway and interrupts the couples' meal. Believing that the chef resembles an enemy from his WWII days, Cotton goes berserk and accidentally but severely injures himself. He is hospitalized and given little time to live, and Hank finds difficulty in saying goodbye. After returning from death a number of times, Cotton finally dies when Peggy honestly conveys her assessment of him and his life. Meanwhile, Bobby stays with Luanne and Lucky during this ordeal. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the young couple practice multiple parenting techniques on Bobby.
