Storyline

Senator Everett's vicariously ambitious wife Melody discretely hires Hank to give their handsome son Kendrick a full medical in absolute secret (even if that requires obtaining insanely expensive equipment) before his recruitment in Notre Dame's football team. Evan takes Hank 'guerilla marketing' through the Hamptons in search of that tenth passerby they may sign up for HankMed, but Hank instead gives priority to a penniless dog-walker. Left on own, Evan scores a client, along with several hot chicks for a pool party (with a nasty sanitary sting) while arranging another date for Hank with Jill (whom Hank mainly presses for hospital equipment). Meanwhile, Kendrick has a sudden and serious episode, which Hank brilliantly diagnoses while revealing a motivational question. Written by KGF Vissers
