Spectators learned that Frank was found wandering through a grocery store and Phil worried about his father’s dementia. He was wrong, but Frank finally died off the screen.

“I learned from the best,” said Phil.
In a confessional, Phil said: “When he was growing up, he was the great father,” Phil said. “It was modern. I knew all the Grease dances [and] he knew all the expressions: BFF: best friends forever, TMI: too much information, BJ: blue jeans … We didn’t do much that day, but it could have been one of the best days I’ve had with my dad. . I just didn’t know it would be the last. “
Viewers saw Phil praising his father.

It seemed interesting to have happened, “executive producer Steve Levitan He said about death last year.
