After a smart-mouthed kid claims to be his son, Dan is served with a paternity suit.
Dan is slapped with a paternity suit, and his supposed son shows up at the courthouse to claim his father.
Dan's chickens come home to roost when the libidinous prosecutor is slapped with a paternity suit. The plot thickens when Dan (John Larroquette) comes face to face with the 10-year-old (Matt Shakman) claiming to be his son. And elsewhere, Bull (Richard Moll) is surprised by the competition in his bid for the post of union representative. With this episode, Night Court moved from its traditional Thursday-night timeslot to a Wednesday-night berth.
