I'm watching the episode a second time, and I just had to share this little exchange between Max and his father Adam:
Adam asks Max if he can remember why Micha might have gotten angry with him.
Max: "Maybe it's because he was suddenly obsessed with basketball, and I told him basketball is stupid."
Adam: "Okay, that could be."
Max: "He can't even play basketball. He's in a wheelchair."
Adam: "You didn't say that did you?"
Max: "Yeah. And then it was even more stupid because he said he could play wheelchair basketball, which I told him was stupid because it's not real basketball."
Adam: "Alright. I think that might have hurt Micha's feelings."I loved this, except for one thing. If Max's Asperger's brain is so orderly and logical ... even though he's often working with faulty assumptions ... why doesn't Adam take the opportunity to argue with him a bit on his own turf, and draw a connection between Micha's disability and Max's? Or, is that unrealistic?
