Storyline

With his dad in town for a fireman's convention, Finch is nervous about him dropping by the office. But when he does, Finch is surprised when Red invites him out for dinner and a Broadway show. And as Maya and Finch both agree that it's awkward having their parents at work, Red joins Jack in his office for a drink and recognizes Nina as a calendar model from many years ago. Meanwhile, unsure about the safety of her neighborhood, Jack nervously accepts an invitation for dinner at Maya's apartment. Following his night out with Red, Finch discovers that his dad thinks he's gay. Though he tries to dispel this ill-conceived notion, Finch has a hard time getting either Nina or Elliott to tell Red the truth. Meanwhile, when Maya's apartment is robbed, she borrows her neighbor's furniture in order to fool her dad. Over drinks, Finch discovers that his two brothers, Scottie and Buck, think he's gay, too.

Brian Dennehy plays Red Finch, Dennis's Dad!
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Brian Dennehy actually makes an uncredited appearance playing Dennis Finch's firefighter father, Red Finch. He makes an unforgettable first appearance with an axe. Red is convinced he's gay after watching a television movie. Dennis tries to convince him he's straight. The Finchs are firefighters in upstate Albany, New York. Dennis is the complete opposite of his father and brothers. He works as an administrative assistant or secretary to Jack Gallo at Blush fashion magazine. Dennis is short and slim. When you watch the ending, you see how it all comes together and how the truth finally comes out in the Finch family with the final line, " Pass the Salt." It's Dennehy's first appearance in the series and it's always unforgettable.
