On the latest episode of “The Cleveland Show,” amusingly-titled “Hustle ‘N’ Bros” (as in “Hustle & Flow,” for those who didn’t get the reference), Cleveland got a visit for his always stress-inducing father, whose respect Cleveland never quite got over the years as a man. When his wife Donna’s ex-husband Robert muscles in on his father time, literally becoming his adopted brother when his dad takes a shine to him, Cleveland reaches his breaking point.
Determined to gain his pop’s respect once and for all, he decides to reach out to his newly-minted bro and have Robert teach him how to “hustle,” hence the title. Naturally, Robert can’t resist messing with Cleveland, at one point literally sending him on a wild goose chase. Naturally, Cleveland can’t resist playing “Duck, Duck, Goose” with the birds, but much to his chagrin, they keep winning: “Of course you’re good at this! You’re the inventors of the game! That’s like playing Chinese Checkers with the Czechs!”
