Pat's Fatherly Advice to Kenny
On his first day back at school after coming out, Kenny ditches class with Shannon so he can avoid giving a student council campaign speech in front of his classmates. When Pat and Eileen catch them, he admits he doesn't want everyone looking at him and judging him. Pat's message to Kenny, and Eileen, is that avoiding people's judgment isn't a solution. He tells Kenny that what people say or think shouldn't stop him from doing what he loves. Kenny takes what Pat says to heart: "Ok Dad, I guess, because you were fat, I'll go back to school."
