If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere...
While trying to apply for a "Native Texan" license plate, Hank begins searching for his birth certificate. When he can't find it, he calls both his mother and father who begin acting suspicious over the phone. Hank then visits Cotton to find out the truth about where he was born. Cotton reveals that Hank was actually born in New York, and consequently blames Hank's mother.
With his newfound birthright, Hank comes to terms with his love of bagels and his penchant for bad driving. So he decides to visit his mother to get her side of the story. It turns out that the trip to New York was Cotton's long drawn-out plan to kill Fidel Castro. Unfortunately, Hank's mother went into labor right before they could assassinate the Cuban dictator.
Cotton's secret, now out in the open, re-inspires him to kill Castro. He unhatches a new plan and intends to pin the blame on Hank. Cotton and his cronies lock Hank inside the Alamo on their way to Cuba. But Hank gets inspired by his American heritage when he sees that one of the Alamo defenders was a New Yorker. He then breaks out of the fort, and stops Cotton before he can take a boat to Cuba, while instilling a true sense of Texas spirit within himself.
