Adam Goldberg (Sean Giambrone) sneaks off to Atlantic City with his grandfather and discovers that Pops is a lot luckier and magical than he is in the “Dance Party USA” episode of The Goldbergs.
“I’m just hoping one of these days some of your awesomeness will rub off on me,” Adam says when they get home.
“What are you talking about you’re plenty awesome,” Pops (played by George Segal) tells him.
“Not like you,” Adam says. “Your life is a parade of money, free shrimp and old ladies that you find hot and I find sad. You’re the luckiest guy I know. It’s like magic.”
“Trust me you have it in you too,” Pops says.
“Really? Cuz my life hasn’t been magical at all,” Adam says. “Even in Magic Camp I was a total third stringer.”
