Granddad's Fight is the fourth episode of The Boondocks. It premiered on November 27, 2005.

Synopsis

Granddad gets into a beef with a blind man named Colonel H. Stinkmeaner. One man's blind. One man is feeble. Both are really, really old.

Plot

The episode starts with Huey explaining a N***a Moment, that is set in Chicago. A pick-up is shown racing through the streets of Woodcrest and creates chaos on the streets before attempting parking in front of a store. The truck, driven by Colonel H. Stinkmeaner, backs into a parking space and crashes into Granddad's car 'Dorothy' several times, damaging it. Huey then tells the story of Stinkmeaner, how he got blind and how he is still alive. Stinkmeaner, a bad tempered man, starts insulting Granddad, claiming it's his parking space and repeatedly saying the word n***a in his way (nyuguh) and spitting at him simultaneously. After finally stepping on Granddads' new sneakers, Granddad attempts to punch him but is tripped by Stinkmeaner instead, and gets beaten with Stinkmeaner's stick on his "bad knee".

Later that night, Huey dreams about a blind samurai who is an excellent fighter due to his audio sense which has improved since he lost the ability to see. The next day, he transfers his dreaming to the real life situation by thinking Stinkmeaner's senses have evolved in a similar way and warns his granddad of meeting with him. When Robert returns, Huey makes him aware of the situation by showing a movie which depicts the same situation. Thus Huey trains Granddad in martial arts to beat Stinkmeaner, while Riley is taking bets on the fight.

At the start of the fight Huey observes Stinkmeaner flail about the fight ring and realizes that he didn't have enhanced hearing or any other senses, Stinkmeaner had simply felt Granddad step on his cane as he went to punch him and moved out of the way. After landing a few punches Granddad knocks Stinkmeaner to the ground, killing him in the process. The crowd begins to swarm Riley, demanding their money back over the fight. Riley throws a chair, remembering from a TV show that throwing chairs always seems to start a fight. It is successful and the crowd begins to fight amongst themselves while Riley escapes.

Later, Granddad is arrested for killing Stinkmeaner, but is bailed out thanks to Tom. Huey narrates that Granddad was still shooken up after that. Huey points out that no one missed Stinkmeaner as he had no friends, family, or companionship, and lived a life without love or pets. He claims that he was a horrible human being, and that the world was better off with him dead, but claims that he was still their brother.

Robert, Huey and Riley visit the place where they met him to pay their respects. Granddad then prays to God to forgive them for taking Stinkmeaner's life. Riley asks Robert why he means us, and points out that he [Robert] was the one who killed them. Robert tells Riley to be quiet and pray. The scene then shifts to the sky and the credits roll.

Trivia

  • The dialogue in which Huey tells Granddad "You will be scared, you will be" is a word for word reference to a dialogue between Luke Skywalker and Master Yoda in "The Empire Strikes Back"
  • The song played during Huey's dream of a blind samurai is from Reakwon - Guillotine(swordz)
  • Granddad hates the song, "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor from the 1982 movie, Rocky III.
  • The dialogue in the training scene with Huey and Granddad is similar to that of a training scene in "Enter the Dragon" in which Huey says "What was that an exhibition? You need emotional content" which is a mirror of Bruce Lee's words while he was training a pupil in the aforementioned film.
  • Riley watches Eat Dirt and his crew at a stage party until Eat Dirt is knocked of his feet from a chair thrown by a rival gang member. The rival gang is later revealed to be the crew of Gangstalicious as the footage is played in later episodes.
  • This is the only episode of the Stinkmeaner saga not to include Stinkmeaner's name in the title.
