Rob helps Big prepare for fatherhood and moving in with his new family.
When Rob catches Big reading a Father-To-Be book, Big explains that he is a father-to-be! He's known for six months but wasn't sure Rob could handle the news -- and he was right. Then comes another bombshell: Big's in love with his baby mama and wants to move out so his new family can have their own space. It's a lot for Rob to absorb.
Rob is bummed, and a little afraid he might be next in line for a life-changing event. Big thinks Rob should just be happy for him. But Rob is a little hurt that it took his best friend so long to share the news.
Nervous about becoming a daddy, Big convinces Rob to go to a baby store with him. Big inspects strollers as Rob flips through a book of baby names. His favorites are Bernard "The Executioner" Boykin or Robecca. But Rob and Big quickly forget all about names when they stumble upon the breast pump aisle.
Back home, Rob and Big waste no time testing out all the goodies they've purchased. First, they hook the breast pump up to their nipples to see if it can squeeze any milk out. Next, they try bottle feeding Meaty. Then they decide Drama should taste test the baby food, which results in a baby-food fight. These guys are going to make great dads!
The next day, Rob and Big are still having a little too much fun with the baby gear, hooking Meaty into a marsupial pouch for Rob to carry around. But it's not all fun and games. Rob reveals he's hired a "baby expert" who's bringing over a simulated baby to help Big prepare for the real thing. Get ready!
Siggie Cohen, the baby expert, arrives to give Big a one-on-one course. She pulls out a doll for Big to practice on, which Rob lovingly dubs Freddie (even though it's a girl). Big does pretty well with changing diapers and rocking the doll to sleep ... until Siggie makes the mistake of telling Rob that it's OK to make loud noises around babies because it helps them adapt to their environment. Rob screams, waking up the robo-baby and causing it to cry. Oops.
Siggie decides to leave little Freddie with Rob and Big so they can continue to practice. Apparently, she also left another present for the guys to test out -- an "empathy belly" to help simulate what it feels like to be pregnant. Rob decides Drama is the perfect person to wear it, complete with a wig. He looks so good that the guys take Freddie and pregnant Drama to dinner to see what family life really feels like.
Rob comments on what a great dad Big is going to make, seeing how Freddie slept peacefully through the entire meal. But when Big hands Drama the doll, she immediately begins to wail. No matter who holds her or what they do, Freddie will not quiet down. They are eventually forced to leave the restaurant and hope the baby's batteries wear out.
Things suddenly turn serious when it's time for the Big's real baby to be born! Rob, Drama and Big Zeus gather at the hospital to support their boy. As the time ticks by, both Rob and Drama are nervous about the new arrival. Rob's never held a baby because he's scared he'll drop it.
Before Rob can psyche himself out anymore, Big emerges from the delivery room to introduce Isis Rae Boykin, his brand new baby girl. Rob's so enamored by the little girl he decides to hold her -- with the help of Big Zeus, who puts his arms underneath Rob as extra insurance he won't drop her.
Proud new papa Big stops by the house to pack up the last of his things. Even though he's only moving down the street, Rob thinks he needs to give his buddy a going away present. When Rob enters Big's room sporting the "super-jacket" Big saved from the trash, Big worries that Rob's going to give it to him. Of course not! That would be foolish -- Big would never fit into Rob's jacket! But Rob did buy Big his very own super-jacket. Now every time Big opens his closet at his new home, he'll think of Rob.
Rob and Big share a poignant hug outside the house ... and Rob pulls out a tiny super-jacket he bought for little Isis. As Rob watches Big drive away, he remembers all the good times they had together ... then he throws his super-jacket into the trash.
