Kahn's father-in-law, General Gum, visits the Souphanousinphone family. The General gives Kahn a hard time and makes him feel like a failure. Hank and the gang feel sorry for Kahn, which never happens and take him under their wing. Peggy and Bobby know that Kahn is just showing his emotional side while the General is in town and as soon as Arlen is without the General, Kahn will show his true colors. Kahn gains some self-esteem when his performance of "There's Got To Be A Morning After" at a local karaoke bar becomes a big hit with the patrons, but the General breaches karaoke etiquette by giving his own performance of the same song at a fund raiser held at Nine Rivers Country Club.
