The Conners Season 5 Episode 11 Recap: On Wednesday’s episode of The Conners, old friends talked about the death of a teacher they all loved. Smitty Cusamano, played by William H. Macy, was one of them. He told Darlene and Becky that he was the man who could have been their father.
The Conners Season 5 Episode 11 Recap
After he left Lanford, Smitty went into the pool supply business and made much money there. But when he was younger, he was like Dan: a blue-collar kid who liked Roseanne. He even took Roseanne to homecoming, where she went home with Dan and embarrassed him.
Smitty is still angry after fifty years. He gives Dan a $6,000 check to help with the mortgage, and then he tells everyone at The Lobo that Dan ripped him off. Dan, who is angry, insists on a fight, but Smitty won’t get into it. He instead offers $2,000 to anyone who will fight Dan for him. The last time Dan saw Bobo was when he knocked out his lights in Season 1 of Roseanne. Bobo then steps up and offers to beat Dan up for free. Dan is lucky that Jackie, a former police officer, is there to remind Bobo of his long list of crimes. That alone is enough to make the drugged-up bully back down.
Dan tells Louise later that he is jealous of Smitty. Smitty didn’t end up with the girl, but he did build a huge business. On the other hand, Dan is still having trouble making ends meet. (Let’s remember he never won the Illinois State Lottery, either.)
The next day, at the funeral of their teacher, Dan gets a letter he wrote to himself in high school. It turns out that it’s just what he needs to feel better. He realises that he did do well in life after reading it. Even though he didn’t have much money, he could rest easy knowing that he turned out to be a better dad than his dad.
We should also mention that Dan does cash Smitty’s check to pay the mortgage. Smitty talks to him about it, but he doesn’t get angry. He goes to Dan’s house to say sorry for what he did before and to give Emma Kenney a chance to act with her former Shameless dad.
