Here we go :DDD : When Dad pines came to visit his "uncle". Stan would try to fish with him and he would go along with it to make the old man happy. Stan would tell about his home life and how his dad was as a child and Lex would just go along with all the made up stories of their adventures. When he was sleeping in the attic, Stan would revisit his textbooks to work on startingup the portal again. Alex wishes to be as smart as his father.
