Mayor May Not

Fri, Oct 4, 2002 60 mins

Back in the present, Travis is mayor of Jasper. He's also married to Lanie (Rhonda Dent), and that makes his ex-best friend Pinkus (who has a crush on Lanie) his abiding foe. So he must return to 1988 to unhitch himself. And while there, he must also get Claudia to stop hating Greg. If he doesn't, his nephew Ethan won't be born. Then there's the matter of the $5000 Travis stole from his bookie father, Double G (Jeffrey Tambor). And Timmy (David Kopp), whose life he just saved, is demanding that his wrecked truck be replaced. Johnny Cocktails: Brad Grunberg. The Captain: Hamilton Camp.

Episode 3

Under Noah's Certain Terms

60 mins

Travis sees a high-school classmate (Glenn Howerton) on an unsolved-crimes TV show, and goes back to 1988 to deter him from a life on the wrong side of the law. But that's not all Travis has to fix: There are Gregg and Claudia to reunite; and Double D's life to save, one strip of bacon at a time. Meanwhile, the teenage Pinkus wants to travel back in time himself. (It seems that there was an incident at summer camp he wants to change.) Timmy Robinson: David Kopp.
