Community Season 5 Episode 10
Advanced Advanced Dungeons and Dragons
-In this semi-sequel to Community Season 2 Episode 14, the gang plays Dungeons and Dragons again--this time, to reconnect Professor Hickey with his estranged son, Hank (David Cross).
-Professor Hickey's son Hank has a son of his own, whom he will not let Professor Hickey see. He has not invited Professor Hickey to his grandson's birthday party.
-The gang, looking to reunite them, stages a game of Dungeons and Dragons to force them to work together.
-The Hickey family's fate hangs in the game's balance: if Professor Hickey wins, he is invited to his grandson's birthday party; if Hank wins, Professor Hickey agrees to not show up at family holiday events.
-But the game has the unintended consequence of splitting the Hickey men up onto separate teams.
-Eventually, the two Hickeys are the only characters left standing.
-But the two men bicker so much, they lose their opportunity to catch the game's villain.
-The gang decides that leaving the two Hickeys bickering, but together, is the best that they can do.

Professor Hickey: Dungeons. It'd be the dungeons.
